Matt Reeves’ new movie The Batman was released on 4th March and the fans are really going crazy watching it. Recently, the DC fans have started requesting for a Batman and Joker crossover. They want Robert Pattinson to star in a movie with Joaquin Phoenix. However, Matt Reeves has turned down their request as he said that this type of movie is not going to be made.
The director of The Batman movie said that a movie featuring Batman and Joker cannot be made as the latter one is a standalone character. Matt Reeves is well known for his film, War Of The Planet Of The Apes and he is currently in the news after the release of his latest film from the DC family.

He said in an interview with Total Film, that he had just finished working on the Planet Of Apes Movies, when he was offered to direct the new film from the DC Universe, The Batman. Earlier Ben Affleck was directing this film and after he left the set, Matt Reeves came on board.
In the interview, Matt Reeves said “When I was working on the script and got deep into the script, Joker hadn’t come out yet. I didn’t know what Joker was or what it was going to be”. He said that he came to know about joker when he went too deep into the script of The Batman.
Matt Reeves further added that “Joker was always meant to be a very specific standalone that Joaquin and Todd were doing. There was never really any discussion of crossover”.
Reeves believes that the character, the Joker, is not meant to feature in some other lead character’s movie as it has the potential to perform very well on its own.
