Robert Pattinson’s Bat-sequel isn’t exactly a sure thing.

Although The Batman blew away the box office and was apparently confirmed to be getting a sequel, The Batman 2 still isn't a guarantee. According to Variety, the upcoming sequel to Robert Pattinson’s first Batman movie hasn’t yet been greenlit by studio Warner Bros. Discovery.

The Batman 2 is thought to be in development, with writer/director Matt Reeves as well as star Robert Pattinson both returning. But it’s still years away from the box office, and Warner Bros. Discovery hasn’t officially given it the go-ahead.

This is despite WB confirming the film with an announcement back at CinemaCon.

The Batman was a huge hit, at least by pandemic standards, when it debuted earlier this year – earning an impressive $700 million worldwide. A sequel is highly likely to still be on the cards, despite recent troubles at the studio in the wake of the Warner Bros. Discovery merger.

IGN’s own review of The Batman gave it 10/10 saying that “Matt Reeves’ violent, thrilling, darkly beautiful take on The Batman more than justifies its place in the franchise’s canon.”

Quite how it sits within DC’s 10-year plan remains to be seen. But I can’t help thinking that The Batman 2, along with the upcoming Joker sequel will be the ones that eventually dominate the landscape in terms of Warner Bros. Discovery superhero films.

Which heroes will join them? That’s the big question.

But it looks as though it could be some time before we get any answers, with Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav waiting to find his own Kevin Feige before making any further plans.
