Amidst the disastrous scenes at Warner Bros over the past few weeks, fans of 'The Batman' can seemingly rest easy.
News has come out from Deadline this week that Matt Reeves, director of the acclaimed gritty superhero movie starring Robert Pattinson, and his company 6th and Idaho have signed a multi-year, first-look deal with the company.
That basically means that the company has the right to pick anything the filmmaker comes up with in the upcoming years.
Warner Bros CEO Michael De Luca said, "keeping Matt and creating a home for him to do more projects in the Batman universe but also originals, was very important to us."
Reeves is currently working on a sequel to the 2021 film. Pattinson will also return in his role as Bruce Wayne / The Batman.
"Making this legendary studio my home is a dream,” said Reeves in a statement. “I am so excited to be working with Mike, Pam, and Channing and our teams to bring captivating stories I am truly passionate about to the big and small screen."
Reeves is also working on multiple spinoffs within his Gotham City universe. This includes one series revolving around Colin Farrell's Penguin character.
Another spinoff was to focus on Gotham City Police Department. However Reeves confirmed the project had been put on hold. It's unclear whether that will now be picked up once again following the deal.
Warner Bros. is also currently working on a 10-year plan for the DC Extended Universe. This could see Pattinson's Batman become the lynchpin for the franchise going forward.
