With the arrival of “The Batman” in theaters, Robert Pattinson’s bid for Caped Crusader joins the many other adaptations of Batman that have hit the big screen over the years. For the most part, every recent iteration of Batman has received at least one sequel that continues the story of Bruce Wayne and his battle against Gotham’s evil. So “The Batman” also gets a sequel?
During a presentation on April 26 at CinemaCon, an annual fair for theater owners, Warner Bros. confirmed that “The Batman” will have a sequel written by director Matt Reeves, according to Variety.
Prior to the announcement, the cast and crew of the production made it clear that they were definitely in a follow-up film. “You do not [movie] number one, as if it were going to be number two, “Reeves told The Independent at the premiere on the red carpet. it’s own. But I really believe in what we have done and I would be excited to tell more stories. . . . We’re starting to talk about another movie. “
Reeves noted in the same interview that other spinoffs of “The Batman” are in the works. “We’re already telling other stories in the streaming room, we’re doing things on HBO Max, we’re doing a Penguin show with Colin [Farrell], which gets super fat. And we’re also working on some other things, “said Reeves. “and” Justice League “), which have already been running for several years.
So what can we expect from the upcoming sequel? The cast seems to have a few ideas. In a video interview with Vanity Fair, the cast joked with who could be the villains in a potential sequel. “I certainly thought the Court of Owls would probably be in the sequel,” Pattinson said. Paul Dano, who plays Riddler in “The Batman,” agreed: “Court of Owls would be dope!”
The Court of Owls, mostly seen in more modern Batman comics, is a secret society of wealthy Goths and the assassins they hire – and it’s a Batman enemy that has yet to be adapted into any major film. More likely, however, is a payout of the teasing at the end of the film that suggests the arrival of another iconic Batman villain. We’ll have to wait and see what happens when the sequel to “The Batman” comes out.
