The Batman director Matt Reeves took to Twitter to clarify statements he made that the film won't be a part of DC's extended universe and that he was offered a standalone film.
Jeez, what'd I miss, guys...?— Matt Reeves (@mattreevesLA) August 24, 2017
Just to be clear: Of COURSE Batman will be part of the D.C. Universe. Batman will be BATMAN...
In my comments from a while back about not being part of the DCEU, I was talking about The Batman being a story specifically about Batman...— Matt Reeves (@mattreevesLA) August 24, 2017
...not about the others in the Universe. That it wouldn't be filled with cameos servicing other stories -- that it would be a BATMAN story.— Matt Reeves (@mattreevesLA) August 24, 2017
So there you have it. The Batman will be a part of the DCEU.
Until Reeves takes to Twitter tomorrow to say it isn't.
