Matt Reeves’ Batman is getting a sequel
The film was announced by Warner Bros. during CinemaCon.
Warner Bros. is producing a sequel to Matt Reeves' The Batman, which will star Robert Pattinson as Batman. According to Deadline, Warner Bros. Motion Picture Group executive Toby Emmerich unveiled the new picture on Tuesday at CinemaCon.
While my colleague Charles Pulliam-Moore thought the film was "one of the poorer entries, substance-wise, in the big Batman cinematic canon," it was a box office success.
According to Deadline, the film grossed $760 million at the global box office and was watched by 4.1 million households on HBO Max the first week it was available. (The film was added to the service earlier this month.)
Both Reeves and Pattinson will return for the upcoming film, however, few additional specifics are known at this time. But the film isn't the only thing to look forward to in Reeves' Batman universe; a spinoff centered on Colin Farrell's Penguin is also in the works for HBO Max.
