New Batman Film ‘Brave And The Bold’ Lands ‘The Flash’ Director Andy Muschietti

Andy Muschietti is set to direct a new Batman film. The movie is one of several new DC Studios titles mapped out by leaders James Gunn and Peter Safran earlier this year.

Muschietti, behind this weekend’s superhero release “The Flash,” will direct “Batman: The Brave and the Bold.” 

The project is based on the comic series authored by Grant Morrison, who Gunn called “exceptionally influential” on in the DC Universe in January. 

The comics imagine a “Bat family,” where Bruce Wayne’s biological son Damian serves as Robin to his dad’s Batman. Muschietti’s sister and creative partner Barbara will produce the project via their label Double Dream, alongside Gunn and Safran.

The project does not currently have a screenwriter attached. This will mark the first live-action film appearance of Robin since Chris O’Donnell played the role opposite George Clooney in the 1997 film “Batman and Robin.” This film will exist separately from Robert Pattinson’s “The Batman” movies.
