Matt Reeves to meet James Gunn, ensure BatVerse, DC Universe ‘don’t crash’ together

Los Angeles: Filmmaker Matt Reeves confirmed in an interview that he has an upcoming meeting with new DC Studio bosses James Gunn and Peter Safran to go over their overhauled DC Universe and his ongoing BatVerse.

He told Collider that the goal is to ensure that both universes “don’t crash into each other” in terms of storytelling. As Reeves put it, “We want to support each other,” reports ‘Variety’.

Reeves’ BatVerse kicked off last year with his Robert Pattinson-starring “The Batman,” which earned critical acclaim and grossed $770 million at the worldwide box office.

The universe will continue with a Colin Farrell-starring Penguin series on HBO Max and a Pattinson-fronted “The Batman” sequel. Other films and series are expected.

Gunn and Safran’s new DC Universe is still being mapped out. The duo are coming up with a 10-year plan for a universe of storytelling that will span film, television and video games.

Gunn and Safran are expected to present their plan to Warner Bros. executives this month. The two have already confirmed that it does not include Henry Cavill’s return as Superman, as Gunn is writing a new Superman movie centered on a younger iteration of the character, nor will it feature Dwayne Johnson’s return as Black Adam. Other details about the new DC Universe are being kept under wraps.
