It’s clear to everyone that Matt Reeves has big plans for his take on the Dark Knight. The Batman will introduce the world to a new take on the iconic vigilante, as the director already mapped out multiple spinoffs. In the latest Empire magazine, Dylan Clark confirms that they have ambitious dreams in an interview to “lay a foundation that you can build stories upon” as the first entry will be quite the standalone experience. It seems that its main star, Robert Pattinson, is in for the long run due to having planned out Bruce Wayne’s emotional story arc throughout multiple films.

It’s unclear how long they want to have this take on the DC hero to go for, but a trilogy seems like something Reeves probably already mapped out. If they are already developing spinoff series for HBO Max, we can assume with good consciousness that Warner Bros. is all in with this new take on the Dark Knight, even as they still continue to expand the DC Extended Universe. So, we’ll see what the future holds for the Caped Crusader.
