The sequel to 2022’s The Batman has been announced by Warner Bros. in CinemaCon, with Director Matt Reeves, Robert Pattinson, Zoë Kravitz, and the rest of the original cast and crew returning for another look into the Caped Crusader’s escapades in Gotham city. This comes after the first movie’s great critical and commercial success, as it currently has an 8.1/10 score on IMDb and has made $750 million at the box office. The film also has the biggest first-week debut for HBO Max, where anyone can currently watch it on demand.
POP! also did a review for The Batman, and we definitely think it deserves a sequel. Director Matt Reeves was able to craft a comic-accurate main character and story, not to mention its incredible gritty soundtrack and darker visuals.
Warner Bros. Chairman Toby Emmerich had this to say about Reeves’ return as director for Batman: “Matt took one of our most iconic and beloved superheroes and delivered a fresh vision that clearly resonated with audiences and with your incredible support, shattered box office records around the world, which is one of the reasons I’m excited to break the news that Matt, Rob Pattinson and the whole team will be taking audiences back to Gotham with The Batman 2.”
Director Matt Reeves also thanked people for the support for the Batman and is excited for its upcoming sequel: “I just want to echo what Toby said and thank you all for your tremendous support for The Batman. We couldn’t have gotten here without the faith enthusiasm and hard work of everyone in this room and your amazing teams here around the world. Every part of this journey has been thrilling for me as a filmmaker and a huge fan of this character and I’m excited to jump back into this world for the next chapter.”
We currently have no details on the sequel’s plot, but we do hope to see Barry Keoghan’s creepy-ass Joker in it, who we see in the first movie’s post-credit scene and a deleted scene. We might even see villains Hush and probably even Bane, but we’ll just have to wait and see what Matt Reeves has in store for us.
