According to a Variety report, it will be the first project of Warner Bros. and Matt Reeves’ overall deal.
Matt Reeves has been quoted by Variety saying, “This is an amazing opportunity, not only to expand the vision of the world I am creating in the film, but to explore it in the kind of depth and detail that only a longform format can afford — and getting to work with the incredibly talented Terence Winter, who has written so insightfully and powerfully about worlds of crime and corruption, is an absolute dream,”
Sarah Aubrey, head of original content for HBO Max also opened up about the spinoff and said, “We are so fortunate to have such great partners in Matt, Dylan, and Terry and unprecedented access to a wealth of IP from our partners at Warner Bros. and DC,”
“Our collaboration with Warner Bros. and DC allows us to elaborate and grow fan connections across these powerful brands for years to come,” said Kevin Reilly, chief content officer of HBO Max and president of TNT, TBS, and truTV. “This is Batman as most audiences have never seen before and we know fans will want to spend more time in this new world inspired by the film.”
