@ProBot1227 Wait, what? What do you mean by that?
I mean that, if they intent to crossover Batman with other things, this reboot is retroactively about the same Batman, Alfred and Gordon, but until then, this isn't in the DC Extended Universe.
They changed the actors because ever since henry cavill retired from superman, ben Affleck, and many other actors retired as well. And this is part of dceu. Wether u guyz accept it or not. And even if it isn't now, let's hope it is in the future. And why wouldn't Matt Reeves want his batman movie to be part of a bigger, shared universe? That makes no sense.
It's not about what they want, and he hasn't said anything, it's about what we know. I want this film to be in the DC Extended Universe too.
Here's the facts:
Warner Bros is focusing on standalone films, even allowing a film to be in a completely separate universe.
Joker was a successful film set outside of the main continuity
Gordon was a white man in Justice League. In The Batman, he's black.
This film has reportedly nothing to do with Ben Affleck's Batman.
This film has no shared cast members.
It has been claimed this is completely separate from the "Extended Universe", though later clarified that it is still in the "DC Universe" and "Batman is Batman", but they're not going to do any cameos or references. Sounds like a big mess.
I wouldn't be so confident. In the chance that Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman or Jason Mamoa's Aquaman meet Batman again at some point, he'll look like Robert Pattinson, though have a vague history of Ben Affleck's iteration combined with his own Batman.
"It's still in the DC Universe" - Yeah, I felt like saying "NO SHIT!" to Reeves on that one... He sounded like he didn't get that there was a movie universe featuring Batman before, somehow? And despite posting about Affleck on Twitter when he took over directing in early 2017... He's doing his own thing, there's no way around this fact. All hail to the Bat Multiverse.
I hate it
The suit looks absolutely beautiful
Then explain this, why does WB/DC and Matt Reeves keep insisting over the past 1-2 years since Reeves was confirmed as director that the film is still apart of the universe that started with Man Of Steel?
As some said above, just because Reeves wants it seperate to Affleck, doesn't mean WB will just suddenly respect his wish. WB wants this universe alive still regardless of wanting to do standalone films and not building up to anything much.
All of it is still a mess today, the franchise is far from being perfect and may I remind you that WB still creates absolutely biased and bad decisions to this day.
I am one of the only people probably that never saw Birds Of Prey, That film is what you call a bad decision, it failed at the box office, the movie was so diversed to people. (Don't tell me am wrong) because end of the day, the film failed simple.
Birds of Prey isn't "that" bad. It's not a "feminist" film like, say, Captain Marvel.
The Batman itself suggests it's separate. For example, it's in the second year of Batman's career. This means that it is in October 1996, yet they have Mobile Phones and Gordon is a completely different race.
That being said, Jim Lee included The Batman as apart of the DC Extended Universe in a list of them when talking about the Snyder Cut, so hopefully it will be folded into the universe. This is the first time it's been mentioned in ages, so I don't know why you're talking about WB saying it's in the DC Extended Universe.
Don't take it like I was having ago btw haha. its just there is a lot of questions about this franchise but we just get the same responses.
I never said WB always mentions it, but its being like 4-5 times they have said The Batman is set in the universe like MOS/BVS etc.
All I really want is for them just to tell the truth.
What do you think?
