Robert Pattinson’s Batman returns as Warner Bros. making a sequel to Matt Reeves’ the batter† Deadline reports Warner Bros. Motion Picture Group director Toby Emmerich announced the new film at CinemaCon on Tuesday.
While my colleague Charles Pulliam-Moore felt that the film was “one of the lesser entries, substantively, in the great Batman film canon,” it has proven to be a hit. The film made $760 million at the worldwide box office and was watched by 4.1 million households on HBO Max the first week it was available, according to Deadline† (The film came to the streaming service earlier this month.)
Both Reeves and Pattinson will be back for the new film, although not many other details are known yet. But the movie isn’t the only thing to look forward to in Reeves’ Batman universe, as there is also a Colin Farrell’s Penguin spin-off in the works for HBO Max.
