While making an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday night (February 14), the 46-year-old actor opened up about why he quit playing Batman: “You know I tried to direct a version of it and worked with a really good screenwriter, but just kind of couldn’t come up with a version — couldn’t crack it,” he said. “So I thought it was time to let someone else take a shot at it, and they got some really good people so I’m excited.

Matt Reeves
is set to write and direct the film, which will reportedly focus on “a younger Bruce Wayne.”
