It is safe to say that Reeves (as of right now) is still on board to direct the solo Batman film. Whether or not it is set in the DCEU, Ben Affleck will be staring, or who the antagonist will be still remain to be seen. Warner Bros. has been rather “hush hush” about the movies going forward. I guess we will just have to wait and see!
