Matt Reeves is most well known for directing the previous two entries in The Planet of the Apes franchise, which was both met with hugely positive critical and fan acclaim.
The role of Catwoman has been played most recently by Anne Hathaway in The Dark Knight Rises. Other actresses to take on the role include Michelle Pfeiffer in Batman Returns and Halle Berry in the negatively received Catwoman.
Filming could potentially start in the following months or early 2020, with The Batman scheduled to hit theatres on June 25th 2021.
