Well it was announced that “The Batman 2” has been officially greenlighted. Matt Reeves has been signed to return to direct and I’m sure he’ll help write the screenplay as well. Robert Pattinson is of course set to reprise his role as Batman/Bruce Wayne and Zoe Kravitz is set to return as Selina Kyle/Catwoman.
I’m sure other characters and actors from the first Batman movie will be returning as well. Yes, of course, I definitely think Colin Farrell will return as the Penguin once again. I’m sure Paul Dano will come back as Riddler probably. Andy Serkis as Alfred, Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon… they all will come back except for John Turturro as Carmine Falcone… he’s the only character that can’t come back but don’t want to give spoilers as to what happened to him.
What will the title be for the sequel? Will they just simply title it “The Batman 2”??? Or will they end up giving it a subtitle? I think they should give it a subtitle and not give it a number.
Now lets talk about some potential storylines and possible villains. I would like them to do something that they’ve never done before. They shouldn’t repeat storylines from the earlier Batman movies. For example, it be interesting if “The Batman 2” would do their own version of League of Assassins storyline like with Ra’s Al Ghul, Talia and the Lazarus Pit and all that stuff but that was already done in Christopher Nolan’s trilogy.
“The Batman 2” will probably start where the first one will leave off so obviously the Riddler and Penguin will return and I’m sure new villains will start appearing too. We could probably get Harvey Dent/Two Face again but the Two/Face character was already done in earlier movies, a couple of times actually. Maybe a Matt Reeves version of Two Face would be cooler and “scarier”, maybe he should give it a go, I don’t know.
I think the Joker should return, though… maybe not as a leading villain but as a smaller role or maybe as another cameo. I think they would bring back Barry Keoghan as the Joker again too but in what way? We’ll see.
There are plenty of other Batman villains from the comics and graphic novels that haven’t been used yet for the big screen, though…. villains like Clayface, Killer Croc, Deadshot, Deathstroke, Blackmask, Hush, Dr. Hugo Strange, The Court of Owls, etc.
As far as good guy characters, I’m sure we’ll get new names of those too…. maybe a new Robin will get introduced in the next one. Who knows. Maybe other Batman allies could introduced in the next movie like Barbara Gordon slowly becoming the Batgirl would be cool and maybe bringing in Azrael would be kind of cool too.
If they were to do a new Robin then it should be someone like Damien and that way they could finally introduce Nightwing. Imagine Matt Reeves doing a Nightwing character?
If they were to do the Court of Owls story then the Joker may have to be brought back ’cause he was an important part of that story. I read the graphic novel.
“The Batman 2” will probably follow the same format as the first one. It’ll be a detective story that will have the feeling of a gangster movie. I think it’ll be a whole new trilogy.
We’ll see what the story and the villains will be. I bet the next one will probably be about Mr. Freeze ’cause Matt Reeves already said he liked the Mr. Freeze story so don’t be surprised they could do Freeze again and I’ll have to say a Reeves version of Freeze would be awesome. It could end up being the Court of Owls instead, though. We’ll see.
They haven’t started the script yet but I’m sure Matt and Robert are already talking about ideas. I can’t wait for “The Batman 2” as I fucking LOVED the first one.
