Planet of the Apes veteran Matt Reeves co-wrote The Batman with Mega Man movie scribe Mattson Tomlin, and Reeves is directing as well. The movie is stacked with behind-the-scenes talent. Oscar-nominated Greig Fraser is the director of photography, while Oscar-winner Dan Lemmon is the VFX supervisor. Star Wars series sound mixer Stuart Wilson is also working on The Batman, while Oscar-winner Jacqueline Durran is the costume designer.

Oscar-winner Ben Affleck, who played the character in Batman vs. Superman and Justice League, was originally attached to write and direct The Batman, but he dropped out in January 2017. When Matt Reeves signed on to direct, he also said that he would not use Affleck's script.
