It’s reasonable to assume that viewers are eager to see The Batman when it opens in theatres in a matter of days. The DCEU’s Dark Knight Rises began as a Ben Affleck-led and -directed film, but it has now transformed into a Matt Reeves-directed project, with Robert Pattinson poised to make his Batman debut.
The likelihood of a sequel looks all but assured following the release of many viral trailers, critical acclaim, and industry predictions of box office success. With Reeves already eyeing Mr. Freeze as a potential antagonist in The Batman 2, the cast and crew had been discussing sequel prospects for years.
Dylan Clark, the producer of The Batman, gave Comicbook’s Brandon Davis a release date for Robert Pattinson’s Dark Knight in the proposed sequel.
A release date of “less than five years” is expected for The Batman 2, implying that it would hit theatres before the year 2027, according to Clark.
The Batman 2 Release Date
The sequel to The Batman was always as inevitable as Thanos because of the massive anticipation, tremendous critical acclaim, and high expectations for film office success. When you hear about a sequel, it feels more genuine than ever, especially when you hear a possible release date.
Robert Pattinson, Zoe Kravitz, and Matt Reeves don’t appear to have any upcoming acting or directing projects on the horizon. With the main actor and crew’s schedules looking a little more open, The Batman 2 could be on its way sooner than expected.
As Pattinson disclosed earlier this year, he has already plotted out his character’s path in both sequels. If Reeves has done the same, a sequel might go forward more quickly than expected. There’s no reason Warner Bros. couldn’t do the same with The Batman franchise as Sony did with its newest Spider-Man trilogy, which released each film only two years apart.
Anything can happen these days, as the last few years have shown, so it’s tough to pin down an exact release date at this point. It will be at least a few years before moviegoers get their hands on a widely anticipated release.
For those who have been eagerly awaiting the return of Matt Reeves’ Gotham, the wait isn’t quite as long as it might have seemed. Both Colin Farrell and Jeffrey Wright’s Commissioner Gordon are likely to appear in the next Batman: The GCPD spin-off series, which is presently in development for HBO Max.
