“We are working on getting our draft [in] the next couple weeks,” Reeves said. “Right now, my head is totally into the script. Right now, I’m going to be leaving here to go back to work on the script.”
So when will The Batman begin filming? “What we’ve talked about is hopefully in the spring or early summer, something like that,” Reeves said.As for who will be playing Batman? According to /Film, “Reeves said he was still speaking with Affleck, but was coy about who might play the caped crusader in the film.” But he did seem to stand by his comments from last year that the movie will be part of the DCEU.
“There are ways in which all of this connects to DC, to the DC universe as well,” Reeves said. “We’re one piece of many pieces so I don’t want to comment on that except to say that I’m focused very specifically on this aspect of the DC world.”
