Robert Pattinson shaped the legacy of the world’s greatest detective with a youthful but clumsy and inexperienced version of Batman in perhaps the best version of Gotham yet caught on camera. Now he will return in at least one sequel, Warner Bros. revealed today at CinemaCon (via diversity).
All other details including plot details, villains, other returning cast members and the release window are still under wraps; All we know is that a second Batman movie is coming, directed by Robert Pattinson, and that Matt Reeves will write and direct again. While unconfirmed, we’re expecting the Joker to appear in the sequel, considering Barry Keoghan appeared as a character both in the film itself and in a clip released after the film’s premiere.
GameSpot entertainment editor Mason Downey, in his review of The Batman, praised the performances of Jeffrey Wright, Zoe Kravitz and Paul Dano, and director Matt Reeves’ take on Gotham itself, while noting that the film overflows itself at nearly three hours and meandering running time.
This latest iteration of DC’s most iconic hero broke the $500 million mark before two weeks had passed, and reportedly did received over 4 million views on the HBO Max service since its April 18 launch and set a record for the Warner Bros. Discovery streaming service, beating Zack Snyder’s Justice League, Suicide Squad and Wonder Woman 1984.
Upcoming superhero films from Warner Bros. Discovery include The DC League of Super-Pets, Shazam! Fury of the Gods, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom and The Flash.
