Well, this should surprise nobody but still is pretty cool news. CinemaCon is in progress and the various studios are keen to get everyone excited for what’s to come. There have been some very vague announcements about sequels to just about every property out there, but tonight, there was an actual specific bit of news from Warner Bros. The Batman, after a wildly successful bow in March, is officially getting a sequel.
According to various sources on the ground, not only is The Batman 2 (or whatever it’s called) happening, but Matt Reeves is returning to write and direct, as well as Robert Pattinson in the title role. The rest of the cast, as well as a release date, is still to come, but this should probably come our way in two or three years. So, be excited, since The Batman was one of the year’s definite early season highlights. Under Reeves’ direction, look for Batman to go on another exciting and thought-provoking adventure.
