Matt Reeves returns as director for batman 2the sequel to his critically acclaimed take on the Dark Knight with Robert Pattinson. Warner Bros. broke the news today during their panel at CinemaCon, reassuring fans that Reeves’ vision for Gotham City will continue to grow in the years to come.
Although it is good to have official confirmation that batman 2 is in early development, so far no one doubted a sequel would happen. For starters, Reeves The Batman has already crossed the $750 million mark at the international box office, making it an absolute commercial success, especially as theaters are still recovering from the effects of the pandemic. Also, considering how The Batman is one of the highest rated DC movies ever made, it’s obvious that Warner Bros. would like to continue investing in Reeves’ vision of the world’s greatest detective.
Additionally, while a sequel has yet to be confirmed, Reeves already had big plans for his Batman adaptation. Reeves is already attached to two new spin-off series in development for HBO Max, one focusing on Arkham Asylum and the Gotham City Police Department, and the other starring Colin Farrelit’s the Penguin. On top of that, Reeves seems to have a clear idea of where other classic Batman villains fit into his version of the DC Universe, having even recorded an extended scene with Barry Keoghan as the Joker who teases the relationship between the Dark Knight and the Clown Prince of Crime. Long story short, Reeves wants to continue working with Batman, and Warner Bros. thinks he can continue to make money by allowing the filmmaker to stay committed to the franchise. Of course, the biggest winners are the fans, who will continue to follow the adventures of Pattison’s hero for many years to come.
The Batman is set in Bruce Wayne’s “second year” as the Dark Knight, when the legend of the vigilante has already spread through the streets of Gotham, but the hero has yet to earn the trust of the citizens. In the film, Batman must confront the mistakes of his actions once he encounters the Riddler (Paul Dano), a brutal serial killer who believes he’s cleaning up Gotham in his own way.
