So ‘The Batman’ IS part of the DCEU after all…


It has been a wild 24 hours for the DC Extended Universe. Between the rumours of a solo Joker movie, to more news of Ben Affleck’s supposed lack of involvement there’s been a lot to contend with.

Yesterday comments flew around the internet from director Matt Reeves claiming that his Batman film will not be part of the DC Extended Universe. can catch you up on the original story. Well now Reeves himself has taken to twitter to clear up his own comments.

In a series of posts this evening the writer/director clarifies what any of us with a level head had expected all along: The Batman will be part of the universe it’s just not a Justice League story.

So there you have it. Whilst Reeves doesn’t touch on Affleck’s involvement or lack thereof at least we know where the films stands in terms of setting!
