Following the success of this year's "Wonder Woman," it seems that the future of the DCEU is finally looking up. The same goes for the initially troubled "The Batman" film starring Ben Affleck, which went through some production woes last year.

Affleck stepped down as the director of the film that also struggled with its writers, but now, Matt Reeves is on board and has confirmed that they are already in the beginning stages of the production process.

This is a good sign for fans who are awaiting Affleck's solo venture as Bruce Wayne following last year's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," as well as this year's highly anticipated "Justice League."

Matt Reeves' film history

"The Batman" director may be best known as the director and co-creator of the late '90s series "Felicity," which he created with J.J. Abrams. He's also known as the director of the 2014 film "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" and this year's "War for the Planet of the Apes," which is due out this July 14.

Reeves has likened "Planet of the Apes" character Cesar with Batman, telling New Trailer Buzz (via IGN) that they are both "tortured" and struggling to "do the right thing" in a very chaotic world. "The Batman" will be Reeves next venture following this year's "War for the Planet of the Apes."

Reeves has a 'noir-driven' approach for 'The Batman'

In talking about 2019's "The Batman," Matt Reeves explained that he would create the film in the way that enables moviegoers to experience Batman's point of view.

As per Gamespot, he explained that he wanted to do "a very point of view-driven" that has a "Hitchcockian sense" to use the camera to let viewers be able to "empathize" with Batman's point of view. He added that "there's a chance to do an almost Noir-driven, detective version of Batman that is point-of-view-driven in a very, very powerful way," enabling viewers to get to the root of Batman's "head and heart."

DCEU future looking up after 'Wonder Woman.'

Next up for DCEU before "The Batman" rolls out is "Justice League," which expectations are high given the first two trailers that have been released.

Based on the two previews alone, it seems that Warner Bros. and Zack Snyder have taken a page from Marvel's book and made it lighter and more engaging than "Batman v Superman." If this year's "Wonder Woman" is any indication, the future of DCEU may look bright if they truly learn something from the Patty Jenkins-directed film which has now surpassed $600 million worldwide.
