During the London premiere of The Batman, which is now just days away from its long-awaited release, director Matt Reeves revealed that he has already started talking about a sequel!
While walking down the red carpet, Director Matt Reeves was asked about the possibility of him returning to direct a sequel to The Batman. The director, who has previously stated that he made The Batman to be a movie that doesn’t need a sequel to be great, revealed that he has already had discussions about a sequel.
It’s important to note that while Reeves stated that he has started to talk about a sequel, no official announcement has been made. The director stopped short of revealing that a sequel to has been greenlit by Warner Bros. Pictures – meaning it still very much depends on the success of The Batman.
See what Matt Reeves said below:
“I’d be excited to tell more stories, and we are already telling other stories in the streaming space. We’re doing stuff on HBO Max, we’re doing a Penguin show with Colin [Farrell] which is going to be super cool and we’re doing work on some other stuff too – but we have started talking about another movie.”
Two years of stalking the streets as the Batman, striking fear into the hearts of criminals, has led Bruce Wayne deep into the shadows of Gotham City. With only a few trusted allies – Alfred Pennyworth, Lt. James Gordon – amongst the city’s corrupt network of officials and high-profile figures, the lone vigilante has established himself as the sole embodiment of vengeance amongst his fellow citizens.
When a killer targets Gotham’s elite with a series of sadistic machinations, a trail of cryptic clues sends the World’s Greatest Detective on an investigation into the underworld, where he encounters such characters as Selina Kyle/aka Catwoman (Zoë Kravitz), Oswald Cobblepot/aka the Penguin (Colin Farrell), Carmine Falcone (John Turturro), and Edward Nashton/aka the Riddler (Paul Dano). As the evidence begins to lead closer to home and the scale of the perpetrator’s plans becomes clear, Batman must forge new relationships, unmask the culprit, and bring justice to the abuse of power and corruption that has long plagued Gotham City.
Directed by Matt Reeves (Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes), The Batman stars Robert Pattinson (Tenet, The Lighthouse) as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Zoë Kravitz (Big Little Lies, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald) as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Paul Dano (Prisoners, 12 Years A Slave) as Edward Nashton/The Riddler, Jeffrey Wright (No Time To Die, Westworld) as Detective Jim Gordon, Andy Serkis (The Lord of The Rings trilogy) as Alfred Pennyworth and Colin Farrell (The Gentlemen, The Lobster) as Oswald Cobblepot/Penguin.
