Andy Muschietti to direct Batman: The Brave and the Bold

15 June 2023
Andy Muschietti, the talented director behind The Flash, has been chosen to helm the upcoming film "The Brave and the Bold: Batman." Variety reports that Andy's passion for DC comics shines through in every frame, making him the perfect choice to bring this thrilling adventure to life. Co-heads of DCU, James Gunn and Peter Safran, expressed their confidence in Andy, praising his visionary direction and deep love for the characters and world of DC.

Not only that, but Andy and Barbara Muschietti have also secured first-look deals with Warner Bros., solidifying their strong relationship with the studio. THR confirms this exciting partnership, doubling down on the creativity and talent of the Muschietti duo.

Speculation about Andy Muschietti's involvement in "The Brave and the Bold" had been circulating for weeks, and now it's official. The news coincides with the release of Muschietti's highly anticipated film, "The Flash," which marks a fresh start for the DCU under the guidance of James Gunn and Peter Safran. The announcement of "Batman: The Brave and the Bold" back in January already had fans buzzing, and now they have even more reason to be excited.

Drawing inspiration from Grant Morrison's acclaimed comic series, "The Brave and the Bold" will introduce Damian, Bruce Wayne's biological son raised in secrecy as an assassin. This complex and captivating character has already captured the attention of James Gunn, who described him as a favorite Robin and a bit of a troublemaker.

This appointment is the second confirmed directorial choice for the new movies revealed in January, following James Gunn himself, who is writing and directing "Superman: Legacy," the inaugural installment of "Gods and Monsters." Furthermore, James Mangold, known for "Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny," is reportedly writing "Swamp Thing" and is strongly rumored to direct it.

Prior to "The Flash," Andy Muschietti gained recognition for his work on "It" and "It: Chapter Two," showcasing his talent for creating gripping and atmospheric films. Currently, both Andy and Barbara Muschietti are also producing the thrilling "Welcome to Derry" spinoff of "It" for Max.

With Andy Muschietti at the helm of "The Brave and the Bold: Batman," alongside his exceptional team, we can anticipate a truly extraordinary cinematic experience. The DCU is set to embark on a thrilling new chapter, and with the combined talents of Andy Muschietti, James Gunn, and Peter Safran, the future of DC movies looks brighter than ever.

Given The Batman did a great turn in the theatres, it's going to be interesting having two Batmen churning out films...
