Fans of The Dark Knight Trillogy look to be in good hands with Batman director Matt Reeves.

Yahoo caught up with Matt Reeves who is taking over the reins on directing Batman from Christopher Nolan.

“What I love that [Nolan] did was that he took the genre seriously. I think the other thing that I really admire in what [Nolan] did was knowing what it is to make a big studio film which often can fall into that sense of committee filmmaking where there’s an anonymity to the point of view of the film."

Matt Reeve also talked more of his take on Batman, which he says will be a very emotional one and similar to Caesar's from War for the Planet of the Apes. We can also speculate the new Batman movie will be pretty serious (and probably not like a popcorn Marvel movie).

I think that the metaphors of both of the franchises [Batman and Apes] enable you to tell stories that have deep emotional resonance. That’s actually what excites me about it. It’s interesting because I was obsessed with both as a child, and yet there is something potentially very adult about what you can explore under the cover of that fantasy. That is what draws me to it, and that’s what I’m excited about.

The article also notes the Batman movie will go into production in 2018 with the script said to be getting a complete rewrite.

Ben Affleck stars as Batman and will next be seen in November's Justice League.
