1. Story arcs we haven’t seen play out

Having fresh villains and the Bat-family naturally opens the door for Matt Reeves’ trilogy to tell unique stories. As mentioned before, there are a number of stories fans have wanted to see play out on the big screen. A story like All-Star Batman and Robin is an arc that has potential in the new trilogy. Not only does it explore Batman beyond the mask and cape, but it’s also a Dick Grayson origin story.

Batman: A Death in the Family is another story that fans have been dying to see on the big screen. The story features Nightwing, Jason Todd’s Robin, and Commissioner Gordon. Additionally, it features roguesJoker, Black Mask, Ras al Ghul, Talia, and Red Hood. Moreover, the DCEU technically lives in a world where A Death in the Family takes place, thanks to Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

With Reeves exploring the “formative years” of Bruce Wayne’s Batman, The Long Halloween would also make for one epic story.  Also, The Court of Owls takes a deeper look inside the history of Gotham. Another amazing story arc features the aformentioned Hush, a villain who tortures Batman unlike any other by simply taking the face of Bruce Wayne.
