Warner Bros. has yet to commit to a sequel to The Batman, but with other projects set in that world, including a Penguin series and one featuring Gotham City PD, it’s clear they have big plans for that world. But as far as Matt Reeves’ vision for the Dark Knight, this story is meant to be a standalone, with potential for more.
Producer Dylan Clark told Empire…
“Warner Bros. has a multiverse where they’re exploring different ways to use the character. We don’t get involved in that. Matt is interested in pushing this character to his emotional depths and shaking him to his core.”
Robert Pattinson still has to win over the fans with his version of Bruce Wayne, but he’s already got thoughts about where Batman could go, and he’s thinking trilogy…
“I’ve made a kind of map for where Bruce’s psychology would grow over two more movies,” Pattinson says. “I would love to do it.”
No matter what happens, I doubt we’re going to see Pattinson face-to-face with Michael Keaton or Ben Affleck in the DCEU. I look at this new movie as off on its own like Christopher Nolan’s stuff.
Meanwhile, Reeves has also dropped a moody new motion poster for The Batman, which features the hero brooding in the blood rain background. We also see The Riddler’s infamous question mark symbol, teasing their eventual showdown.
The Batman opens in theaters on March 4th.
