Los Angeles [U.S.A.], June 28 (ANI): Filmmaker Matt Reeves spilled some beans about his upcoming movie 'The Batman' while promoting his newly released flick, 'War for the Planet of the Apes'. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Reeves has revealed what kind of vision he has for the project. In an interview with New Trailer Buzz, the 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' helmer said, "In all of [my] films, what I try to do, in an almost Hitchcockian sense, is use the camera and use the storytelling so that you become that character, and you emphasise with that point of view. There's a chance to do an almost noir-driven detective version of Batman that is point-of-view driven in a very, very powerful way, that will hopefully connect you to what's going on inside of his head and inside of his heart." Reeves also drew comparisons between the Dark Knight and the protagonist of the new Apes trilogy, Caesar. "I see a parallel, emotionally, between Caesar and Batman in that they're both characters who are tortured and trying to sort of grapple within themselves to find a way to do the right thing in a very imperfect, and to some degree corrupt, world. And so it's really that emotionality that I'm interested in," noted Reeves. Reeves also recently confirmed Ben Affleck, who had previously been attached to direct the Batman solo film, is still aboard to play his Caped Crusader. The movie still does not have a release date. On a related note, "War for the Planet of the Apes' stars Andy Serkis, Woody Harrelson and Judy Greer in pivotal roles. (ANI)
