I think it's pretty much confirmed at this point that the Matt Reeves Batman movie will be stand alone. He said as much in a recent interview. I do think that the chances of us getting more BMWW are very minimal at this point. The head of WB (or at least the guy overseeing the DC stuff), did say that they might return to the inter-connected Universe stuff sometime down the line, but that's not their focus right now. So until they decide to go back to doing crossovers, it seems there won't be any chances of BMWW happening.DaisyJane wrote: ↑Thu Feb 28, 2019 12:19 pmAnother nail in the coffin of seeing anymore BMWW in the DCEU:

Matt Reeves seems very intent on copying Nolan's Dark Knight, given his comments and insistence on casting a 20-something Bale look-alike seem to be pointing in that direction. The alleged list of actors they're considering is dreadful, with names like Robert Pattinson and Kit Harington ?!! who're neither in their twenties funnily enough. The rest are no names British actors who couldn't look like Bruce even if their life depended on it. The one possible exception is Armie Hammer. I'd be down with him because he gives me strong Ben Affleck vibes, but then according to him nobody has been in contact with him. The point is, even if WB was still willing to proceed with their shared universe plans, Reeves' Batman might tank our BMWW hopes anyway.
It's all such a waste really. WB went high and low trying to catch up to Marvel's cinematic universe, only to abandon it all the moment a movie didn't work out, largely because of their own incompetent interference. What's the point of doing separate movies at this point ? Aquaman succeeded because it was a good movie, and people where already interested in Momoaman from BvS and JL. Abandoning all the shared universe aspects is a foolish short-sighted decision, done as another knee jerk reaction to Aquaman's success.
The Batman, unlike Aquaman and Shazam, is seemingly not even going to acknowledge the extended DC universe because Reeves is too busy thinking about the potential oscars he's going to collect, and the Flash movie will bring about a "NEW DC UNIVERSE" according to Erza Miller. So everything is being abandoned, except they're doing it in an agonizingly slow process rather than just wiping the slate clean and be done with it. It's all rather disappointing really. Something like BMWW won't just happen unless someone believe strongly in it, and at this point when WB has resolved itself to producing stand alone movies, I really can't see a feasible scenario where BMWW can remain on the table.
