There have been a lot of rumours making the rounds suggesting that Robert Pattinson does not want to work with The Batman director, Matt Reeves again.
Well, I can tell you that according to the information I’ve been told recently, that’s not even close to the truth.
The rumours came from We Got This Covered, and this isn’t me calling them out or anything like that.
They might have been told by someone that Reeves and Pattinson do not get along and do not want to work together again.
The issue is that these rumours have mostly been spread on places such as Reddit and 4Chan.
These are two places you should never really take much notice of as far as entertainment scoops are concerned.
Will Robert Pattinson and Matt Reeves work on another Batman film together?
I asked a few people I’ve worked with before over at Warner Bros. Pictures for a comment on this story, and many of them were very happy to set the record straight.
Here’s what one representative from Warner Bros. Pictures had to say on the matter:
There is no truth in those rumours.
That was what just one Warner Bros. representative had to say when I contacted them asking for a comment on the story.
However, another one went into quite a bit more detail:
We do not comment on rumours and speculation. However, I can state that Reeves and Pattinson have devoted themselves to doing the DC Comics character of Batman justice and are excited for audiences to see The Batman when it’s released in cinemas on March 4th, 2022.
Warner Bros. is very happy with The Batman
These are two pretty standard responses, but it’s interesting that they replied in the first place.
I did some more digging and asked some sources I know to have close ties to Warner Bros. Pictures and HBO Max whether they had any more information.
One did come back to me and added the following:
As far as I am aware, Robert and Matt will be working together on The Batman’s sequel. The hype surrounding the movie here at WB is palpable. WB is very happy with how the film’s turning out. They want them [Pattinson and Reeves] to make a second one.
The source then got onto the subject of where these rumours of Pattinson and Reeves not getting along might have come from.
Here’s what they had to say on the matter:
The rumours of them not getting along are just being spread by some nobodies on Twitter and YouTube that were upset that the bloke from Twilight was cast as Batman. I also think the Ben Affleck Batman thing has riled people up the wrong way.
Robert Pattinson and Matt Reeves will work on other DC Comics properties too
This all comes after it was revealed that Robert Pattinson had signed a new contract with Warner Bros, New Line, Warner Bros Television and HBO Max.
It’s a pretty huge contract and will see Pattinson get a lot more creative control moving forward.
Here’s what Pattinson had to say about the new deal:
Warner Bros Pictures and HBO have always been synonymous with groundbreaking film making. I’m thrilled to be working with them to discover the most exciting new voices in film and television and help bring their visions to life. I’ve loved working with the studio over the years and have so much respect for their dedication, their willingness to take chances and their desire to push the envelope creatively.
The deal is for theatrical, SVOD (HBO Max) and WBTV properties.
This deal represents Pattinson first foray into producing.
Courtenay Valenti, President, Production and Development for Warner Bros Pictures, and Richard Brener, President & Chief Creative Officer of New Line Cinema, had this to say on the new deal with Pattinson:
We have been incredibly impressed with Rob’s eye for identifying dynamic new filmmakers. Additionally, he is continually nurturing exciting story ideas into compelling screenplays. We are so excited that Warner Bros and New Line will be his home and that we get to benefit from his creative, commercial passions.
Matt Reeves is making a Batman prequel show for HBO Max
As for Matt Reeves, he’s also going to be making a prequel series to The Batman.
This series will be set mainly in Gotham’s police department and will focus on its corruption.
It seems as though it’s in part inspired by the Ed Brubaker and Greg Rucka comic book series, Gotham Central.
As for what it’ll be called, it seems as though it going to be titled Gotham P.D., and it won’t have any ties to the Gotham TV show.
