Call me crazy, but I’m more hyped for Matt Reeves’ The Batman than I was for Avengers: Endgame. The film is still in its pre-production stages and is about two years away from actually hitting theatres, but from what we’ve read and heard so far from Reeves, it sounds like it’s gonna be the actualisation every Batman fan’s wet dream. A neo-noir detective Batman movie? Take all my money. But it’s not just what the movie promises to be, but who’s sitting behind the camera. Matt Reeves is the man who brought us, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and War For the Planet of the Apes, both of which are masterful showcases of poetic storytelling.
And it certainly does seem like the movie is shaping up rather well, according to Matt Reeves’ frequent collaborator Michael Giacchino at least. Giacchino who previously composed the music for Reeves’ Planet of the Apes movies mentioned at San Diego Comic-Con (via CinemaBlend) that he’s seen a little bit of Reeves’ caped crusader project and that it’s awesome.
“Matt [Reeves] and I worked on Planet of the Apes together, we made Cloverfield. Matt is really big, Matt’s amazing. So, Matt wanted me to tell you that he’s working very hard to make a good movie… I’ve actually been able to see a few things that he’s showed me that he’s working on and it’s pretty darn awesome. It looks really, really amazing.”
At the same panel, Giacchino (The Incredibles, Rogue One) was also asked if he’s once again gonna be working with Matt Reeves and compose the music for The Batman. The acclaimed music composer replied:
“I don’t know. We’ll see. I just know that my friend is working really hard right now. Anyway, I’ll say that.”
The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as Gotham’s Dark Knight and is set to hit cinemas in 2021.
