Matt Reeves clarifies Batman comments

When they approached me, what they said was look, it's a standalone. "Batman will be BATMAN..." It could be that he misspoke, and that Warner Bros.do intend The Batman to be part of the main DCEU continuity. Setting The Batman outside the DCEU would allow Reeves to recast Batman, giving Affleck an out from the movie while he retains the option to appear in main canon DCEU movies.

The "Batman" is scheduled for release in 2018. There have been so many rumors that Affleck wants to walk away from the role after the Justice League.

Roadblocks, Weapons Bans as Boston Braces for 'Free Speech' Rally
Trump initially described the thousands of peaceful counter-protesters as "anti-police agitators", but then applauded them. The counter-protesters surrounded the perimeter of the Parkman bandstand where the "free speech" rally was held.

Matt Reeves, who will direct The Batman, has clarified it even further via Twitter. Also, the movie will be set outside the #Dc Extended Universe and the makers are looking for a new actor to play Batman in the standalone film. If The Batman doesn't fall under the DC universe umbrella at all, it could be a splintering off of the multiverse after Flashpoint. Seemed pretty clear: The Batman would be a one-off joint, not part of that DC extended universe. We'll see how it pans out over time, since as it stands Warner Bros. has a VERY large number of projects allegedly in development or pre-production. Unlike Marvel, who has plotted out a roadmap to their universe for the next decade and more, there's no absolutely no big plan here. This strategy is not surprising; however, it seems like the DCEU has adapted a new and unexpected idea: they are potentially making The Batman separate from the DCEU. And now there's a rumour going around that it may have replaced director David "Suicide Squad" Ayer's female-led Gotham Sirens movie, which actually sounded like it had potential. After some speculation about what he meant, many doubted that Affleck would return as Batman in the film. Instead, Reeves may be seeking to correct his previous statements that implied The Batman would be the first of a trilogy of Dark Knight movies. He confirmed on Twitter that The Batman will still take place in the DC universe. Remember, back in 2009 Warner Bros. cast Armie Hammer as Batman in the scrapped Justice League: Mortal while Christian Bale was still portraying the character in Christopher Nolan's solo Batman films. While Reeves and Warner Bros. has been sketchy in regard to answering that curiosity, Matt is now sharing what The Batman won't be.
