Like, zoinks! A piece of fan art for the next one batman 2 sees an Ultra Instinct take on Matthew Lillard’s Shaggy from the live action scooby-doo movies paired with Robert Pattinson’s Dark Knight.
Shared on Twitter, the piece sees the Caped Crusader and the gluttonous coward standing in the area of the recent post MultiVersus cinematic trailer. The two figures appear to stare at the viewer, Shaggy’s eyes gleaming ominously and Batman clutching a batarang, ready to fight.
Although Shaggy is unlikely to appear in batman 2, Pattinson has expressed interest in bringing Robin into the sequel, but on the condition that the character be 13 years old. “It’s the only way for me to accept it,” Pattinson commented. “No I like Death in the family and all that, but I think that would be so cool. Also, people are so scared of it, but it’s kind of exciting. I think that would be a really fun addition.”
In contrast, director and co-writer Matt Reeves revealed he wasn’t sure if the character could work in The Batman‘s, remarking, “Here’s the thing, I have a lot of ideas of what I want to do. I don’t know what the next story is. For me, whatever that story is, it’s gonna take these characters, and especially the character of Batman, and put them in some kind of emotional danger. So with what you’re talking about, there can be a really interesting story. Reeves added that there have to be emotional stakes that allow ” get carried away [Robin’s] story” and that he doesn’t want the young hero to “become a cipher”.
Despite his uncertainty about Boy Wonder’s arrival in this universe, Reeves discussed his interest in reinventing Mr. Freeze earlier this year. In making a more realistic take on the King of Cold, the filmmaker noted that he “just [feels] attracted to finding the grounded version of everything”, and that he thinks there is “thinks there is actually a grounded version of this story, which could be really powerful and could be really great”.
Additionally, although the plot details on batman 2 are currently classified, producer Dylan Clark has raised the possibility of the film incorporating a time jump. A penguin limited series on HBO Max is also from The Batmanwith Colin Farrell reprising his role as the Gentleman of Crime, while Reeves said he had discussed with department superiors the possibility of doing a Catwoman spin-off.
