The movie is being directed by Matt Reeves who said at DC FanDome that the upcoming film won't be an origin tale.
"You're meeting him in the early days," he said about Batman in the new film. "And, for me, what's really important about this iteration is that, you know, a lot of the other stories are very much about how he had to master his fear, and master himself, in order to become Batman. And that in that Batman state, he's sort of in his best self.
"I think, for me, what was exciting was not doing that — not doing the origin, not doing what we'd seen done so beautifully in other movies, but instead to meet him in the middle of this criminological experiment, to see him in the becoming of Batman, and to see him make mistakes as Batman, and see him grow and fail and be heroic, do all of the things that we associate with Batman, but in a way that felt very human and very flawed."
The Batman is slated for release in October, 2021.
