Less than a month after star Ben Affleck decided not to direct his upcoming Batman spin-off film, Warner Bros.

Has already found a new director: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Cloverfield’s Matt Reeves.

Reeves will direct and produce Affleck’s first solo film, The Batman.

Affleck is still credited as producer and also wrote the script with Geoff Johns.

“I have loved the Batman story since I was a child. He is such an iconic and compelling character, and one that resonates with me deeply,” said Reeves in a statement.

Ben Affleck as Batman in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.” His latest film as the caped crusader, which he also co-wrote, will be directed by Matt Reeves.

In January, Affleck announced he was ceding the director’s chair after realizing that both helming and starring in The Batman would be too much work.

“T are certain characters who hold a special place in the hearts of millions. Performing this role demands focus, passion and the very best performance I can give,” Affleck said ahead of Reeves’s appointment.

Affleck made his debut as Batman/Bruce Wayne in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
