The DC Extended Universe (DCEU) has been hit with much unfortunate drama the past few years. Everything from poorly reviewed films, to directors declining to work on films based on legendary comic book characters such as The Flash and Batman. Having your name attached to these movies would usually be a dream come true, so what the heck is the problem over at Warner Bros.?
Here’s some more drama …
Matt Reeves (Cloverfield, Rise of the Planet of the Apes) was in talks to take over as director of THE BATMAN after Ben Affleck decided not to direct but to still stars in it as The Dark Knight. Then suddenly, Reeves withdrew from negotiations only to be officially signed on a week later.
So what happen?
According to “deeply-embedded” sources over at Splash Report, it all came down to one simple point and that is “Reeves wants the same control over The Batman as Wan has over Aquaman.”
NOTE: The site has written a wonderful story that will update you on all things DCEU so I suggest you click HERE to read all about it.
At this point, DC needs a critically acclaimed movie and NOT so much a Box-Oficial hit like Batman Begins was. After that, I think everything will fall into place. A great film will equal many sequels and financial success.
