Batman 2 was a welcome reset for DC’s iconic superhero. After Ben Affleck failed to truly establish himself in Zack Snyder’s controversial film, this young refresh by director Matt Reeves was a rejuvenating exercise in getting back on track.
Nintendo Switch game consoles are not often discounted, thanks to Nintendo’s strict pricing policy. But the holiday shopping season is perhaps part of the company’s exception.
As expected, Nintendo is bringing back its Black Friday deal that was so successful last year, bundling a brand. New Switch console with the wildly enjoyable Mario Kart 8 Deluxe at a special discounted price.
Batman 2 Online Membership
The bundle includes a 3-month Switch Online membership, as long as you have an Internet connection. You can go straight online and join Mario Kart races with friends nearby.
The bundle will begin on November 20, 2022, and will be priced at around $299.99. As for the UK, there is no official confirmation from Nintendo UK yet, but we imagine this same bundle will be discounted at around £259.99. However, currency fluctuations and inflation may change the pricing this year.
The film’s emphasis on Batman’s detective work is also made all the more valuable by a cast that includes Robert Pattinson as the grumpy caped crusader, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, and Colin Farrell as Oswald Cobblepot, aka The Penguin. A sequel was inevitable, but what do we know about the next film in this revamped Batman saga?
What is the status of the Batman sequel?
A sequel to Batman 2 was made official during a presentation at Warner Bros. CinemaCon on April 26, 2022. It was also announced that Matt Reeves would return to write and direct the sequel.
At the event (via Deadline), Reeves said, ” Thank you all for your tremendous support of ‘Batman’. We could not have come this far without the trust and enthusiasm of your teams around the world. We are excited to dive back into the world for the next chapter.”
Is there a release date for The Batman 2?
No official release date has been announced yet, but reports suggest the sequel will land in theaters in 2025 “at the earliest.”
According to Variety, in a report on James Gunn and Peter Safran’s appointment as head of DC Films, Reeves details that the script for the “Batman” sequel has not yet been completed.
“Also on deck is a sequel to The Batman.” The report said.” However, writer/director Matt Reeves has not yet provided a finished script, so that film will not be released in theaters until 2025 at the earliest.”
Who will return for the “The Batman” sequel?
It is reasonable to assume that other key cast members will return, including Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Jeffrey Wright as Jim Gordon, and Andy Serkis as Alfred.
The big question is: Who will be the villain? In “Batman,” Paul Dano’s Riddler is imprisoned in Arkham Asylum, where he meets a version of the Joker played by Barry Keegan.
These characters will likely play a role in the sequel, but their involvement has yet to be confirmed. It is also possible that Colin Farrell will reprise his role as the Penguin.
