It turns out that we might see Batman use detective mode after all. Despite the turmoil that has surrounded Warner Bros. stand-alone Batman movie, War for the Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves has a clear idea what the movie will focus on. 

While talking to New Trailer Buzz (via Polygon) Reeves said his film will be in a similar vein to Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy but with a ‘noir-driven’ story as the films USP.  

“There’s a chance to do an almost noir-driven detective version of Batman that is point-of-view driven in a very, very powerful way, that will hopefully connect you to what’s going on inside of his head and inside of his heart,” Reeves said.

Reeves went on to draw a parallel between Batman and War for the Planet of the Apes Caesar, both of whom are somewhat tortured by their personal, emotional problems. “I see a parallel emotionally between Caesar and Batman, in that they're both tortured and trying to sort of grapple within themselves to try and do the right thing in a very imperfect and, to some degree, corrupt world,” he said. 

Pre-production is just about to start on the film.

You can catch Ben Affleck’s Batman next in Justice League which will be released on Nov. 17.
