It seems like Matt Reeves is slowly starting work on The Batman now that he's all done with War for the Planet of the Apes, updating fans and talking about his plans for the highly anticipated superhero movie.

Speaking in an interview with The Hollywood Reporters' Kim Masters on her podcast The Business, the filmmaker decides to open up about his vision for The Batman. In the discussion, Reeves tries to compare what he wants to do with Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight.

"The Dark Knight, which I think is an incredible movie, the thing that really resonates about that is The Joker … his story and that performance, and everything about the filmmaking that relates to that character – it's his (Heath Ledger's) movie. And I think Christian Bale is great, but I think that that movie movie really resonated with everyone because of that character (The Joker), its portrayal, and the way that the movie presented his unsettling perspective and the way that crashed up against Batman. I think I am interested in being even more inside of Batman."

It's interesting to hear that Reeves wants to take on the same level of seriousness with The Batman, only this time focusing on The Dark Knight himself. Though Nolan's Batman trilogy did very well, fans felt that the film's made quite the impression because of villains like Heath Ledger's Joker.

Reeves has a lot of high hopes for The Batman, envisioning a "dark noir" crime drama in the style of Alfred Hitchock's movies. Let's hope that he hits the mark.

The Batman doesn't have a release date just yet, but we'll update everyone as soon as we get word.
