Though Matt Reeves has been pretty busy working the media routes to talk about his upcoming War for the Planet of the Apes, DC fans have been eager to know what the director has planned for The Batman. There was a lot of controversy after original director Ben Affleck decided to step down to concentrate on his role as the DC Extended Universe's Dark Knight, and though Warner Bros. already has Reeves as replacement, fans are eager to get updates to soothe out their worry.

Yesterday, Reeves updated fans saying that he'd have a more "personal take" on The Batman. Today, in an interview with CNET for his upcoming movie War for the Planet of the Apes, the director rolls out even more info saying that he'd use some of Alfred Hitchock's cinematic aesthetic for the DCEU film.


"For me, point of view is really important. I want to make sure you are experiencing something from the perspective of the main character in the story. I'm a huge Hitchcock fan -- I like the idea of being immersed in that perspective."

Hitchock was had masterful taste in framing and camera work, taking viewers closer to his characters psyche using suspense-filled shooting. Imitating Hitchcock's style will go great with Reeve's hopes to have a more "personal take" on The Batman – something that sounds like an exciting and meaningful turn for the DCEU.

The Batman doesn't have any release date as of yet but we'll update everyone as soon as we get word.
