Robert Pattinson's highly anticipated movie, "The Batman," which released last week, has reportedly made $128 million at the box office over the weekend. Now, the actor has revealed he was looking forward to appearing in the sequel of sci-fi adventure movie, "Dune."

"There’s only been two movies — well, three now — where I wanted to do a sequel: the “Apes” movies, “Sicario” and “Dune,” Pattinson told Variety Sunday following "The Batman" release.

The 35-year-old actor also praised the director Matt Reeves for 2017's movie, "War for the Planet of the Apes."

"I saw both of the “Apes” movies in the cinema and I just thought what he [Reeves] could do with mo-cap was just so unbelievable," he added. "If he could do that with a monkey’s face, then he can get a performance out of me as well."

Considering Pattinson's interest in the "Dune" sequel, it seems the actor is keen on working with Canadian filmmaker Denis Villeneuve, who made the sci-fi movie "Dune" and crime thriller "Sicario."

"The Batman" dropped in theaters on March 4, and it is slated to release on the streaming platform, HBO Max on April 19. The movie also stars Zoë Kravitz, Paul Dano, Colin Farrell, Jeffrey Wright, Barry Keoghan, Andy Serkis and Jayme Lawson.

Batman was originally introduced in DC comics in 1939. The newly dropped movie is a reboot of the Batman movie franchise.

Pattinson also opened up about discussing "The Batman" for the first time with the producer, Dylan Clark and Reeves.

"I’d met Dylan Clark, the producer, probably eight months beforehand. I noticed that he had an involvement with "The Batman," the actor explained before revealing that there was no script ready at that time and the producer asked him to meet the director directly to learn more.

"[Reeves] He was just so lovely and showed me some of the art," Pattinson said. "There was incredible artwork already done for it, how he’s envisioning Gotham. He had a really interesting take."

Prior to "The Batman," Pattinson was popularly known for working in the "Twilight" movies. The actor has also featured in various other projects including "The Lighthouse," "The King," "Waiting for the Barbarians," "Tenet" and "The Devil All the Time."
