The ‘War for the Planet of the Apes’ together is “starting again” and promised a “new story.”
Matt Reeves is revealing more from his plans for his take on The Dark Knight.
When asked if he would be working with Affleck’s script, Reeves said, “No, it’s a new story. It’s just starting again. I’m excited about it. I think it’s going to be really cool.”
Reeves, whose War for the Planet of the Apes hits theaters this weekend, has previously said that Affleck will remain as the Dark Knight in the upcoming film and that he is planning a noir-take on the character. In the original script, Deadstroke was the villain, with Joe Manganiello cast. (Reeves did not say if he plans on using Deathstroke in his script.)
Affleck is set to appear at San Diego Comic-Con next week during Warner Bros.’ Hal H panel, which will feature his Justice League co-stars. He’ll don the cape and cowl for the superhero team up, out in theaters Nov. 7.
