Just recently I felt like batman 2 could take years to solidify as a meaningful project. Despite Robert Pattinson and Matt Reeves The Batman film resonating with audiences, little was known about how a sequel to the film might pan out. But now a lot is happening in this direction. First, Matt Reeves and his production company 6th & Idaho signed an overall first-look deal with Warner Bros. Secondly, batman 2 found a second writer. Mattson Tomlin will co-write the script for the second The Batman movie starring Matt Reeves.
It’s been a tumultuous time for Warner Bros. Discovery. Many of the choices the company has made, such as canceling its bat girl film and the removal of streaming content from HBO Max, landed poorly with consumers. Undoubtedly, the company hopes to combat some of these issues with some good news. And progress on The Batman 2 is certainly that, but we don’t fully know if it will be enough.
According Deadline, Reeves “became the first filmmaker to receive an overall first-look deal since Warner Bros. Pictures Group co-presidents/CEOs Michael De Luca and Pamela Abdy were hired by Warner Bros. Discovery chief David Zaslav, to lead the film division.” Warner Bros. Pictures Group will now have first look rights to everything Matt Reeves creates as a writer, director and/or producer. Reeves also renewed his deal with Warner Bros. Television Group. Currently, we know that Reeves’ Penguin spin-off series will begin filming soon. We have also heard of The Batman spin-off series that will take place in Arkham Asylum.
When it comes to batman 2as mentioned, we know next to nothing about the movie. The BatmanThe final scenes of The Joker could play a role in a sequel, but it’s too early to tell. All we know for now is that batman 2 is definitely a hit, and Mattson Tomlin will co-write it with Matt Reeves, per The Hollywood Reporter. We’ll have to wait and see what happens next.
