Co-Writer and Director Matt Reeves explained that introducing Bad Ape was meant to start widening the fictional world for future sequels, by establishing that there are other apes across the world beyond Caesar's colony who were mentally uplifted by the Simian Flu. He added: "Bad Ape is really...he's critical to this story, but he's actually a seed thats planted that sort of says that...that's a widening up of the world. It's not just Caesar's apes. There are other apes elsewhere, and those apes haven't had the benefit of Caesar's leadership, and so who knows what they're like, and they certainly wouldn't necessarily have the level of empathy and integrity that he's tried to instill in his family of apes, so future conflicts might not just be human and ape."
