In a recent interview with THE LOS ANGELES DAILY NEWS, director Matt Reeves had the following to say about being able to direct both WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES and THE BATMAN -- characters and franchises he adored as a kid...
“It’s a strange thing to be involved in the two franchises which were the two that I was connected to most as a child. I just was obsessed with Batman when I was a kid. What I find so interesting about him as a character is that, as far a superhero goes, he’s not superhuman, he is a person. And he is a tortured soul who is grappling with his past and trying to find a way to be in a world that has a lot that’s wrong with it and trying to find a way to reconcile all of that. That is a really powerful character, in the same way that Caesar is such a powerful character.”
Yeah, it's got to be really cool to be able to actually be able to make films based on characters and/or franchises you loved as a child.
Reeves is putting the final touches on WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES and will get to work on THE BATMAN sometime late-Summer/early-Fall of this year.
