However, I'm also on record as saying that I enjoyed Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice, a film many long-time Bat-fans took issue with for a variety of reasons, some involving Affleck and many not. Though I'll agree that there were elements of the feature that played out a bit too nebulous as well as a bit too 'dark' (for how the material was presented), Ben did a pretty solid job ponying up one of the better comic-bookish features for the DC Universe in some time. (Sorry, Christopher Nolan, but I wasn't a fan of your brooding Christian Bale trilogy, though it did have moments.)
In any event, Warner Bros. has made it official today that the fan-favorite director Matt Reeves (of Cloverfield and Rise of the Planet of the Apes' fame) is taking over the center seat on the long-gestating The Batman. This comes hot on the heels of a rumor (just yesterday, I think) that talks had broken down, and we'll probably never know what that means or if it was legitimate. I've read an article involving this over on Cinelinx right here, and I'd encourage those interested to check it out for themselves.
Reeves is a gifted director, and I think this bodes well for the franchise.
As always, thanks for reading ... and live long and prosper!
