“The Flash” director Andy Muschietti will helm the new Batman movie.
Muschietti – who previously directed the two-part reboot of ‘IT’ as well as 2013’s ‘Mama’ – entered the world of comic book heroes by taking on new blockbuster ‘The Flash’ starring Ezra Miller and he has Now confirmed to be returning to the DC Universe, taking the reins of a new big-screen Batman project titled “The Brave and the Bold.”
Muschietti’s connection to the project has been rumored for some time, but he has now finalized a deal to direct the film which was confirmed in a statement from DC Studios chiefs James Gunn and Peter Safran, who said “We’ve seen ‘The Flash’ even before taking the helm at DC Studios, and knew we were in the hands of not only a visionary director, but also a huge DC fan.
“It’s a beautiful film – funny, moving, thrilling – and Andy’s affinity and passion for these characters and this world resonates through every frame. So when it came time to find a director for ‘The Brave and the Bold’, there was really only one choice.
“Fortunately, Andy said yes. … We couldn’t have had better or more inspiring partners as we embark on this exciting new adventure in the DCU.
Muschietti has worked with two Batmans before – Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck make superhero appearances in his movie ‘The Flash’.
“The Brave and the Bold” will feature a new version of the Caped Crusader as well as young murderer Damian Wayne, who is actually Batman’s son. He later becomes Robin and eventually takes over the role of Batman himself.
When announcing the film earlier this year, Gunn said of the film, “It’s a very strange father-son story.”
Another Batman movie starring Robert Pattinson titled “The Batman: Part II” is slated for release in 2025.
