Matt Reeves NOT directing THE BATMAN

Why don't they just ask me to direct The Batman? I'll do it for free.
"A week after entering negotiations to direct The Batman, Matt Reeves has exited the talks, The Hollywood Reporter has learned."
"A studio source confirms that negotiations have broken down. The possibility, however, exists that talks could resume when heads cool. The studio is intent on making the movie no matter what, as the Batman franchise has proven to be bigger than one person."
