The recently released Matt Reeves film - The Batman, is apparently breaking box-office numbers and it was even lauded by critics. While the film’s success has prompted the inevitable sequel of the film. Now, director Matt Reeves has finally answered the question that has everyone curious of, Will Batman's trusted sidekick Robin be a part of the sequel?
Interestingly, during his appearance on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, host Josh Horowitz asked The Batman director Matt Reeves if Robin fit in the dark, gritty Gotham he has created, to which Reeves replied, "Maybe, I don't know. Here's the thing, I have a lot of ideas about what I want to do. I'm not sure what the next story is. For me, whatever that story is going to be, it's going to take these characters, and specifically Batman's character, and put them in some kind of emotional jeopardy. So, with what you're talking about, there may be a really interesting story."
The director added that there is a possibility of Robin appearing in a sequel but it would have to make sense emotionally.
He said, "There have to be emotional stakes so you get drawn into that character's story. I don't want that character to become a cipher- I don't want it to be like, okay, so we saw that it wasn't an origin tale but it was kind of (Batman's) origins, and now he's just perfect. No, you need to test the character again, again and again, and for me, there might be something (in bringing in Robin)."
The Batman stars Robert Pattinson in the titular role along with Zoe Kravitz, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright, Colin Farell, and Andy Serkis in pivotal roles.
