Matt Reeves' The Batman seems to be shaping up nicely, with several actors already being cast to play as Batman, Catwoman, The Riddler, and Commissioner Gordon. As we wait for shooting to start and hope for some awesome official images, fans are wondering if we'll see Robert Pattinson's Batman interact with the wider DCEU now that Ben Affleck has officially left. If the word of Aquaman star Jason Momoa means anything, fans shouldn't expect a crossover right away and that's not a bad thing.
During an interview with ET, Momoa was asked if he would be crossing paths with Pattinson's Dark Knight or Zoe Kravitz's Catwoman anytime soon, maybe even during an Aquaman sequel. Momoa basically said that he hopes a crossover will eventually happen but he's currently happy with these DC superhero movies focusing on solo projects for the meantime.
"I mean, it'd be awesome, but I don't think it's going that way. Let's just let them do their thing and I'll do my thing," Momoa stated.
This is the best course of action for the DCEU to take after trying to force multiple crossovers right away since both Batman V Superman and Justice League were seen as rushed movies that didn't sit well with viewers. Movies like Aquaman, Shazam, and Wonder Woman proved DC can make solid blockbuster superhero movies as long as they don't rush into an event.
Besides, The CW is already doing Crisis on Infinite Earths and there's no way a DC movie event can compare to the scope of that event. Even Marvel movies aren't that ambitious.
The Batman will be released on June 25, 2021.
