The DC Extended Universe has been in a state of limbo since Ben Affleck shocked the masses by walking away from the director's chair for The Batman, though things seem to be getting themselves back on track. Matt Reeves stepped in as director, and with his latest feature-length 'War For The Planet Of The Apes' being over and done with, it means he can now move onto pastures new.

The whole thing is just; Truly, I've not been doing anything other than working on Planet for the Apes."

"Not only did I say this is the perspective where I want to come which is a personal perspective, but I also said this: I'm not free. I cannot start on this [right now]. I'm working on a movie I've been on for three years and I'm certainly not going to drop the ball now."
