The Batman Sequel Finds Its Writers

It has been announced that the sequel to The Batman will once again be written by Mattson Tomlin and director Matt Reeves — two of the writers behind the first film.

Though Tomlin was uncredited for his writing on The Batman, that doesn’t seem to be the case this time around. Tomlin has a good deal of experience writing the Caped Crusader, as he also wrote the Batman comic mini-series Batman: The Imposter, which received positive reception.

Little is known about the plot of the untitled The Batman sequel so far, though Robert Pattinson is set to return as the titular Dark Knight. The first film did tease the Joker and leave the Riddler alive at Arkham, so one or both of these iconic antagonists could potentially make a return.

Gil Colson, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Colin Ferrell as Oswald Cobblepot/ Penguin.
