Matt Reeves Reportedly Being Eyed For Dark MCU Project


It’s being reported that The Batman writer/director, Matt Reeves is being eyed by Marvel Studios for a dark MCU project.

This report comes to us via Giant Freakin Robot, and I have to make it very clear that this is a rumour at this point.

According to the report, Marvel’s President, Kevin Feige, is keeping a close eye on Matt Reeves and is looking to hire the writer/director for a dark MCU project.

However, the report does not reveal which MCU project Feige reportedly has Reeves in mind for.

Giant Freakin Robot’s Doug Norrie rights:

Kevin Feige is a big fan of Matt Reeves’ directorial and writing work, seeing it lining up with how the Marvel Cinematic Universe is trending into the future.

It does seem as though Marvel Studios is looking at developing dark properties for the MCU.

We’ve already got the likes of Moon Knight and the MCU Blade movie on the horizon.

We were also informed that Marvel Studios was looking to make a Punisher series for streaming.

These projects will all be pretty dark, and bringing a director like Matt Reeves into the MCU fold at this juncture would make sense.

However, if The Batman performs well at the box office – which I’m pretty sure it will do – then he might be very busy with DC stuff in the next few years.

It’s already been reported that Reeves is interested in doing a Batman trilogy with Robert Pattinson.

He also is writing The Batman spinoff series for HBO Max and there have been rumours that they are also working on a Penguin spinoff series starring Colin Farrell.

We’re going to have to wait and see what happens, but I would love to see Matt Reeves get to work in the MCU sandpit.
