Recent reports have suggested that Muschietti is in talks to direct the Batman movie under James Gunn’s DCU called The Brave and the Bold. Earlier, the Batman actor Ben Affleck was rumored to take the director seat for the film, but he later denied the claims in an interview.

Although neither the studio nor the filmmaker has confirmed anything yet, sources have claimed that the rumors regarding the Argentine filmmaker directing the Batman film are true. If the claims are true, the Batman film would be the third project to finalize a director.

Others also suggested other filmmakers that would be better than the It director to work on the film. One user said that Sam Raimi had expressed his desire to work on The Brave and the Bold and would be better than Muschietti to work on the project.

While some named the John Wick director Chad Stahelski as a better option for the role, others said that Muschietti’s potential to work on the Batman film would be determined by The Flash’s performance. Many were also excited about the news and said that they could not wait to see his take on the Batman film.
