Reeves Responds to His "Standalone/Not Part of Extended Universe" Comments

After I posted yesterday's story about Matt Reeves' saying his Batman film would be "standalone" and "not part of the extended universe," I tweed this follow-up...

And now, Matt Reeves says this via his official Twitter...

I'm glad he cleared that up and explained what he meant...but did he? ANYWAY...

I have no problem at all with such an approach. Just make a Batman movie and don't worry about continuity and nods to a shared universe. In fact, that's the approach that's currently being taken with James Wan's AQUAMAN and other DCEU "standalone" films -- such as WONDER WOMAN 2 -- in the future.

Also, I hope Ben Affleck returns as Batman/Bruce Wayne, but I'm still 50/50 on that. We shall see soon enough on that one.
