During a recent interview with Comic Book, The Batman co-writer and director Matt Reeves revealed that he and writing partner Mattson Tomlin are in the process of writing a screenplay for The Batman 2. While he hasn’t said exactly where he is in the writing process, it sounds like they’re making great strides and he’s very happy with where they’re going. Once again, nothing indicated that James Gunn and Peter Safran’s takeover of DC Studios had any impact on his trial, but of course that’s always subject to change.
“I mean, I can’t give an update on the specifics, other than to let you know we’re working hard on the script,” Reeves said. “My partner and I are deep into it and I’m excited to see what we’re going to do.” This is very encouraging news for fans of The Batman and Robert Pattinson’s take on the character. Exact details on the sequel’s plot are unknown at this time, which isn’t surprising given that the script isn’t even finished yet, but chances are viewers will get more of the Dark Noir feel they got with the first one had movie.
It also seems less and less likely that Gunn and Safran will meddle in Reeves’ independent corner of the Caped Crusader world, as Colin Farrell recently announced his Penguin spin-off show will begin production in February 2023 would (per Variety). It seems like fans can expect a lot more The Batman-related content in the years to come.
