According to a report from Discussing Film, Matt Reeves’s The Batman script is in itsfinal stages, with Reeves putting the finishing touches on the story. That report also suggests that the film will take Batman to a new, yet familiar era: the '90s
The report of a ‘90s setting for the film could potentially indicate that the Bruce Wayne featured in The Batman isn’t a completely new character, but a younger version of the DCEU hero who we’ve already seen. Currently, the film is looking to cast a well-known actor in his late ‘20s to early ‘30s as the next Bruce Wayne. While setting that film in the ‘90s allows for an origin story to be told, it also allows a seasoned Batman to be an active crime-fighter in the present day.
