The Batman 2 Is Officially In The Works And Robert Pattinson Is Returning

Director Matt Reeves revealed the sequel has started development and the whole cast will be returning.

Director Matt Reeves has confirmed a sequel to The Batman is officially in development.

He confirmed the exciting news during CinemaCon this week and revealed Robert Pattinson will be back as the Caped Crusader.

Unfortunately he couldn't explain when we can expect to see the highly anticipated film, so we'll have to wait for that juicy news.

A sequel was hinted at the end of the first movie, though it was fairly cryptic.

It was no small feat to wait for the post-credits scene after already having sat through a near three-hour film, with the consumption of copious amounts of sugary drinks combined with the determination not to miss an important plot point providing a recipe for desperately needing the toilet.

The blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment saw the words 'Good Bye' and a green question mark appear on the screen – with the question mark in reference to the Riddler as well as a potential sequel.

After that message, viewers are met with text that actually directs viewers away from the cinema screen.

If you weren't sure what to make of the text, it's a URL to the Rat Alada website, which offered up clues about the film ahead of its release.

Prior to the film's release the site was home to three riddles which, when solved, led to a video clip from Thomas Wayne’s mayoral campaign with the words 'hush' and 'the truth about Gotham' scrawled across the screen at certain points, and the Riddler's symbol at the end.

In case you missed this version of the website, the riddles, and the answers are below:

1. 'It’s more than just a game. Fear he who hides behind one.'

2. 'What was new, is new again. Rebirth. Restoration. Reformation.'

3. 'I am first a fraud or a trick, or perhaps a blend of the two. That’s up to your misinterpretation.'

The answers are Mask, Renewal, and Confusion, respectively.

Once the film was released, the website changed to display a code that disappears and is replaced by a hyperlink to another page. That page, titled 'It's Not Over Yet', offers up an image featuring symbols similar to those used by the Riddler in the film.

According to Games Radar and some dedicated people on Twitter, the message reads as follows: 'You think I'm finished, but perhaps you don't know the full truth. Every ending is a new beginning. Something is coming.'

It's unclear exactly what the daunting message refers to, but with the film coming to an end with a blossoming friendship between the Riddler and a fellow prisoner we assume to be the Joker, it seems pretty clear that 'something' isn't going to be good for Batman.
