AceShowbiz – Robert Pattinson‘s Batman may not be as so-unlucky-in-love as Michael Keaton‘s version in 1992’s “Batman Returns”. Words are Bruce Wayne will be depicted as a married man with a kid in a future “The Batman” sequels.
We Got This Covered, which first broke the news about Batman’s alleged love story arc in the upcoming movie, claimed to have got the scoop from a reliable source who has in the past shared some credible information about other projects. According to the source, the first film in the planned new trilogy will establish Batman’s romance with none other than [SPOILER ALERT!] Catwoman, who will be portrayed by Zoe Kravitz.
Apparently, the sequel to Matt Reeves movie will feature its version of the Joker (or Jokers) taking center stage, along with the beginnings of a full-on love story. The site adds that future sequels will see the pair getting married and having a baby.
It’s further said that the plot will be familiar to readers of the comics, though it remains to be seen if this will adapt the storyline straight from the comics, in which their first rooftop wedding plans were scuppered when Catwoman jilted Batman. In “Batman” #85 which was released in 2019, the pair eventually tied the knot in a low-key ceremony.
In 1992’s “Batman Returns”, Batman and Catwoman’s romance ended with Catwoman apparently dying in order to get revenge on her former boss.
Meanwhile, filming on Reeves’ “The Batman” has been halted due to the coronavirus outbreak. The cast and crew had shot around a quarter of the film in the U.K. when production was halted in March as the country was hit by COVID-19.
Reeves recently said that he planned to resume the production in the country once the crisis is over, but hasn’t ruled out moving production elsewhere. “It’s way too early to say,” he told Deadline. “I can’t imagine we wouldn’t finish in London. The situation is fluid.”
The movie has been scheduled for a June 25, 2021 launch. It’s currently unknown if the coronavirus pandemic will affect the release date.
