Warner Bros is now literally focused on restructuring their business, by giving the audience a more good quality film rather than focusing more on profits. It also decided that Warner Bros will create a 10year Plan similar to the MCU. Recently WarnerMedia unit has merged with Discovery+ making it one company named Warner Bros Discovery.
The Batman movie which starred Robert Pattinson as the superhero and Zoë Kravitz as Catwoman did pretty well at the box office earning $710.5 Million globally. It also got a rating of 85% on rotten tomatoes. After the success of the film, in less than 2 months Warner Bros revealed its plan for another sequel.
At Cinema Con 2022, it was revealed that Matt Reeves Batman will return once again with another sequel but it’s still not been greenlit by Warner Bros. In a report from Variety, it was known that “Writer-director Matt Reeves is on track for a sequel with star Robert Pattinson, but the project remains in development and does not yet have to greenlight – any future film is years away.”
Although the film is in development, until it’s not greenlit by the studios, it’s not possible to bring the sequel quickly in the coming years. Toby Emmerich previously praised Matt Reeves in the comic con panel by saying, ” Matt took one of our most iconic and beloved superheroes and delivered a fresh vision that clearly resonated with audiences and with your incredible support, shattered box office records around the world.”
Warner Bros Future Plans
During their Q2 2022 earnings call, they revealed that now their major focus is to produce great quality films and to bring Warners back. They are looking at the big opportunities at hand and DC remains on top of their list, so they are interested in reshaping DC too.
CEO Zaslav added to this conversation saying, ” You look at Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman – these brands that are known everywhere in the world. The ability to drive those all over the world with a great story is a big opportunity for us. We have done a reset. We’ve restructured the business. We are going to focus.”
