Now that director Matt Reeves is starting to place The Batman collectively, as Warner Bros. appears to be like to reset considered one of its best-known (and most profitable) characters for the second time in roughly 5-6 years, the rumors have begun to emerge in earnest about who’ll don the cape and cowl subsequent. As we discovered yesterday, former Twilight Star Robert Pattinson is the present front-runner for the function.
As soon as critical speak of a brand new Batman begins, it’s inevitable that earlier than lengthy, the dialog will drift to the subsequent most vital query: who’s his newest enemy? Whereas Reeves has beforehand implied that the subsequent story will embody a “rogues gallery” of villains, phrase has been largely mum to this point about who might step in, both to revisit a traditional character or to place a brand new one on the map.
Whereas hypothesis on that group-of-enemies isn’t performed for simply but, The Hollywood Reporter’s Warmth Imaginative and prescient publication means that the subsequent stand-alone DC film is perhaps revisiting a pair of traditional villains from a earlier moviegoing technology: “Matt Reeves remains to be tweaking his script, which is rumored to have at the very least two villains, the Penguin being considered one of them, in line with sources (one individual is telling us there will probably be round half-a-dozen villains!). We’re listening to of one other purrfect character making an look within the script as effectively.”

Tons to unpack there. If true, The Batman would reunite the antagonists from 1992’s Batman Returns, within the roles made unforgettable by Michelle Pfeiffer and Danny DeVito. (There aren’t any current rumors about who would play both of the roles.) Nonetheless, the equally attention-grabbing merchandise right here is that speak of a half-dozen villains. Motion pictures like Spider-man three have beforehand collapsed underneath the burden of making an attempt to juggle the storytelling essential to flesh out a number of villains in 120-ish minutes, however in a post-Endgame world, the concept of Batman taking over a horde of villains isn’t so far-fetched.
The concept additionally invokes the Arkham video games, which might permit the hand-to-hand fight that’s develop into a contemporary staple of Batman motion pictures to take middle stage, so there’s one thing to be stated there as effectively. In any case, if one of many nice onscreen superhero pairings does wind up reuniting, it received’t stay a secret for lengthy.
