“The Batman” was a smashing hit at the Box Office and Warner Bros. couldn’t be more happier about the film’s success, especially in the wake of all the negative publicity they got for the way they handed Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
According to Deadline, the studio has greenlit the production of a sequel to the Robert Pattinson starrer-flick. Warner Bros. Motion Picture Group confirmed the development at the CinemaCon in Las Vegas Tuesday (April 26).
“The Batman” earned more than $760 million worldwide and close to four million households streamed the movie during the first week of its release on HBO Max, making it the most streamed title for the subscription-based service.
Matt Reeves will return to helm the sequel, which is currently without a title. The 56-year-0ld NY native previously worked on hits like 2014’s “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” and its 2018 sequel. He addressed the crowd today in Vegas.
“Thank you all for your tremendous support for The Batman. We couldn’t have gotten here without the faith and enthusiasm of all your teams around the world. I’m excited to jump back into this world for the next chapter.”
Zoe Kravitz, Jeffrey Wright, and Andy Serkis also appeared in the original, alongside Colin Farrell, who recently nabbed a spin-off series dedicated to his character, Penguin.
