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.
Fans are absolutely buzzing off the news and can't wait to see where the rebooted franchise will go next.

Matt Reeves’ first DC masterpiece about the Caped Crusader saw Robert Pattinson take on the titular superhero opposite Paul Dano’s Riddler, Zoe Kravitz’s Catwoman, Colin Farrell’s Penguin and John Turturro’s Carmine Falcone.
The flick has been a huge hit with fans and critics alike, having racked up a not-too-shabby 85 percent rating for itself on Rotten Tomatoes.
But with such epic on-screen action comes a suitably epic run-time - just shy of three hours if we’re counting - which isn’t ideal for anyone without a bladder made of steel.
Many people weren't entirely convinced by the idea at first, but Reeves revealed that he wrote the main part specifically for R-Patz, having become hopeful he would accept the offer after seeing the British actor's other work.
"From the beginning, I was imagining the character in my head," he told Movie Maker.
"I watched movies of actors in the age range and he really captivated me. I started writing for him. I had no idea if he'd ever want to be in the movie.
"He's such a wonderful actor. And I knew that he would be able to go on that search with me for the depth and complexity of this character."
