Reeves made a brief appearance to thank audiences who helped the film soar past $750 million at the global box office, making it the highest-grossing film of 2022.

"This is thrilling for me," Reeves said, adding that he's a huge fan of the character and "is excited to jump back into this world for the next chapter."

Reeves also promised more info on the movie... at a future Cinemacon. So until then, keep those utility belts fastened tight.
