Director Matt Reeves, who took over duties on The Batman from the film's original actor/writer/director Ben Affleck, revealed on MTV's Happy Sad Confused podcast that he ditched the earlier script that Affleck wrote with Chris Terrio and DC's Geoff Johns.

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 recently said the movie will be a noir-take on the character and he has plans for a trilogy. With Reeves taking over writing and directing duties from Affleck, it's only a matter of time before he suits up himself.
