Just announced last night on CinemaCon, The Batman has been greenlit for a full-on sequel! It’s going to happen and everybody is coming back! What great news! I thoroughly enjoyed the first movie and I always have high hopes for a new iteration of Batman.
Those high hopes usually revolve around how the new iteration is going to handle Robin. In fact, this whole list could just be repeating Robin after Robin after Robin. I love Robin. And I would love nothing more than to see Robin be treated with reverence and respect in a sequel, his character done right. But that would make a boring list. I can’t just be talking about Robin in The Batman over and over again. So if we remove the Boy Wonder from the equation, what else would I like to see in the officially announced sequel to The Batman?
Join me after the jump for my suggestions for The Batman sequel and what fun we could have.Read the rest of this entry
The Batman did great in theaters and made a ton of money. But several weeks have passed now and people are moving on — so how about DC juice interest in the movie by releasing a deleted scene that fully features Barry Keoghan’s Joker! Only teased in the actual movie, this 5-minute scene does not shy around the Joker.
I think this is great! Releasing a deleted scene like this is a fun way to spark some new interest in the movie. And why not go hog wild with the new interpretation of the Joker? People like the Joker. People love to talk about that Joker tease in the movie. This is a great way to expand the universe of The Batman without saying anything yet about a sequel. Fun little video.
I also love the idea that the Joker has already been done in this universe. He came and went sometime in Batman’s first year, and now he’s behind bars in Arkham. Hopefully this means we won’t get Joker as the main villain in the sequel.
It’s Batman’s world, we’re just living in it. After several years of delays, The Batman has finally arrived in theaters and delivered a Batman movie we can all love and embrace. It may be 3 hours long, but it’s a heck of a ride and I had a blast with this big, fun Batman adventure.
Movie Rating: 9/10 – Great
I love Batman as much as the next person, and The Batman was probably my most anticipated movie of this year. I liked what I saw with each of the trailers, I liked how this world was forming, and it lived up to all my hype and expectations. The actors, the characters, the designs, the choices, the score; everything worked for me with this film and I can’t wait for all the sequels and spin-offs we’re going to be getting.

The Batman is definitely a movie that’s happening. There’s no stopping it at this point. We’re going to get a new Batman movie. There’s no sign of Robin, yet, but check out this cool new Batmobile. Director Matt Reeves shared this pic and others on his Twitter yesterday. I like the grounded, realistic, muscle car look.
Reeves is definitely really good at building hype for his movie. We’ve seen the Batsuit, now the Batmobile, so surely he’s next going to tease the Robinsuit…right? Right?!
The Batman has started filming. The movie with Robert Pattinson in the lead role and a whole bunch of villains is going to happen. I’m all for it! I like a good Batman movie. And director Matt Reeves gave us our first look at the new Batsuit last night.
I don’t care for it.
It looks almost exactly like every other modern Batman costume. It’s all hard, thick armor and normal human eyes. I’m not saying I need him to be wearing spandex or anything, but maybe a happy middle ground? Maybe something new and creative?
Ah well, life is what it is.
No word on Robin as of yet…
