Yesterday, Fandango’s Erik Davis and The Wrap’s Umberto Gonzalez chatted about WB cancelling The Batgirl last week, and what may be happening with Warner Bros and the DC Universe. Since people seemed to be worried about what might happen to The Batman 2, I thought I’d post the conversation below and this extract thanks to The Direct:

After addressing the cancelation of Batgirl and the general realignment of Warner Bros. Discovery’s DC strategy, Davis asked “Is [Robert] Pattinson the guy [to continue to be the DC’s Batman]?” despite director Matt Reeves’ expressed desire to “do a trilogy.”

Gonzalez answered, “Of course. Why wouldn’t they?” He went on to call the first film “a success,” saying he is “pretty sure that they’re going to let Reeves do his trilogy:”

Davis: “Is [Robert] Pattinson the guy [to continue to be the DC’s Batman]? That was an old regime move too, that first Batman movie. Really good, I loved it. A little divisive for some people, maybe not as accessible for some people. I know [Matt] Reeves wants to do a trilogy. We talked to Pattinson, he wants to do a trilogy. He wants to do a whole arc as Bruce Wayne. Do you think that they stay the course?”

Gonzalez: “Of course. Why wouldn’t they? The first movie was a success, so I’m pretty sure that they’re going to let Reeves do his trilogy. That Batman in that universe will continue going forward.”

WB knows what they have in The Batman universe and will seemingly make the right decision when it comes to moving forward with a sequel and its potential spin-offs. For those worried about The Batman 2 getting the ax, take a deep breath, it seems that Warner has seen the golden goose they have with this take on the character and will not touch it.
