'The Batman 2' Seemingly Confirmed With Robert Pattinson And Director Both Returning

'The Batman 2' Seemingly Confirmed With Robert Pattinson And Director Both Returning

Warner Bros. have apparently signed a first-look film deal with director Matt Reeves, which seems to confirm that the sequel is happening.

Well, this is a relief. Just recently, it was reported that despite the film’s success, a sequel to The Batman still hadn’t been given the green light by Warner Bros. Apparently, although the director Matt Reeves had already commenced work on it, it was said that it’d be years before we actually saw it release (assuming it was given that all-important green light). 

While you're here, take a look at this incredible Batman cosplayer's antics below.

Now though, Deadline reports that Warner Bros. have given Reeves a first-look film deal, which appears to confirm that the sequel is actually happening. The deal will give the studio first-look rights to Reeves’ work as a writer, producer, and/or director.

“Making this legendary studio my home is a dream,” Reeves said in a statement (via Deadline). “I am so excited to be working with Mike [De Luca], Pam [Abdy], and Channing [Dungey] and our teams to bring captivating stories I am truly passionate about to the big and small screen.”

Deadline claim that as well as Reeves directing, Robert Pattinson will be reprising his role in the sequel as the Caped Crusader, which fans are sure to be excited about. 

It’s also been confirmed that a HBO Max spinoff series, The Penguin, is happening, starring Colin Farrell. Speaking to Deadline, Michael De Luca revealed that the series is currently in its “beginning stages of planning”, and that he and Pam Abdy were “excited to nail down [Reeves’] overall deal because it’s a cornerstone of what we want to do with the filmmakers that are working at the studio”. 

“Keeping Matt [Reeves] and creating a home for him to do more projects in the Batman universe but also originals, was very important to us,” De Luca said.
