After A Nap, Matt Reeves Will Get To THE BATMAN 2


THE BATMAN director has big plans for THE BATMAN-verse…he just wants us all to enjoy the first one as a standalone movie first.

Speaking to  Los Angeles Times En Español, here’s what he had to say about future cinematic installments…

I think the first thing is a very long nap and here’s the thing, my feeling in doing the film was always that I would never treat it as chapter 1. Because chapter 1 assumes that there are more chapters. So what I wanted to do was to make this movie a satisfying experience so that people could experience a new fresh version of a character that the world has loved for over 80 years. I think that if we succeed on that front, I know that I have a lot of stories I want to tell and then we’ll do chapter 2, but not because we didn’t make this one a complete experience. Let’s just see what happens, let’s see the audience watch it. I hope they connect to it and if they do then yes there’s definitely more to do and I will not be napping for too long!

And I don’t blame him for wanting to take a bit of time away from Gotham since the dude has been working on this film for basically 5 years straight.

Let’s all take his advice and enjoy THE BATMAN right now, and the 2 HBO Max spinoffs, as well as a big-screen sequel, will get here soon enough.
