The Academy Awards Ceremony is well known for throwing up some solid gold moments, and this year included an unexpected Batman moment thanks to the presence of former Dark Knight villains DeVito and Schwarzenegger, and the original big screen Bruce Wayne, Michael Keaton. The on-screen chemistry between the pair was clear for everyone to see, and the addition of Keaton playing up to his former role became the icing on the cake and saw the clip going viral.


Having previously hinted at a future collaboration, DeVito confirmed to CNN this week that there are definitely wheels in motion for him to share screen time with Schwarzenegger again in the near future. DeVito said:

“We’re working on something, a project that we are going to do together, another movie. Arnold and I are good buddies. We met way before Twins, years ago. We get along really well. We’re hoping that sooner than later, we’ll have a nice script to go to work.”

Although DeVito did not go into any details about what the project is that he and the Terminator star are working on, it is not likely to be the previously announced Twins sequel, Triplets. DeVito previously joked that they missed out on making a sequel to the 1988 comedy because Schwarzenegger “became governor. He should have done Twins 2 instead of becoming governor.”

However a sequel did almost materialize a few years ago, when it was announced that the pair would be teaming up with Twins director Ivan Reitman for Triplets, with Eddie Murphy originally set to join the project, then Tracey Morgan. However, the death of Reitman in 2022 saw the project take a back seat, with neither DeVito nor Schwarzenegger wanting to proceed without the director.

Most recently, as well as their Oscars appearance, the pair teamed up for a State Farm insurance ad that made their debut at the 2024 Super Bowl.
