Release Date, Cast, Plot & Everything We Know About The Batman Sequel
The Batman 2: The 2022 American superhero movie based on the DC Comics superhero Batman is coming back with a sequel.
- Along with the premiere date, DCU creators James Gunn and Peter Safran stated that The Batman will be a trilogy.
The Batman is a 2022 superhero movie based on the DC Comics superhero Batman. It is a reboot of the Batman film franchise. Released in March 2022, The Batman was a critical and commercial success across the globe. It received positive reviews from critics, with praise for the performances, musical score, cinematography, Reeves’ direction, editing, visual style, and action sequences.
Recently, James Gunn and Peter Safran, the co-CEOs of DC Studios, released a vast new slate for the core DCU. It will be grouped under the title “Chapter 1: Gods and Monsters.”
Still, they also granted approval for other stories to be written under the Elseworlds section. As the limits of DC storytelling are pushed, this will allow for films and television shows like The Batman 2 that are set in alternate realities to flourish and continue outside the main chronology. Although The Batman 2 won’t take place in the DC Universe’s main timeline, it will still happen, and we now have further information on Matt Reeves’ follow-up, including its release date. Here’s everything you need to know The Batman 2 whose actual title is The Batman Part II.
When Will The Batman 2 Premiere?
The Batman – Part II is the name of the sequel to The Batman, as per the latest updates from DC Studios. Along with revealing the new details, DC has announced the release date for the sequel.
The Batman 2 will hit the screens on October 3, 2025. The announcement was made as part of Warner Bros. Discovery’s larger plan for the new DC Universe and its several side projects, at least one of which incorporates Batman. Along with the premiere date, DCU creators James Gunn and Peter Safran stated that The Batman will be a trilogy.
What will be the Plot of The Batman 2?
The Batman Part I chronicled the young batman’s history. It explored the Dark Knight in a neo-noir detective thriller that received many positive reviews from critics and fans. Although Robert Pattinson is slated to return as the titular Dark Knight, little is known about the plot of the untitled The Batman sequel as of yet. One or both of these recognisable enemies could appear again since the first movie teased the Joker and left the Riddler at Arkham still alive.
Scripting in progress
In a recent interview with Collider, Reeves confirmed that he is working on a script for the next Batman film.
“I’m not going to answer that question, but we are working on a movie. I’ll put it to you that way.” But then he revealed, “We’re deep in it and my partner and I are writing, Mattson [Tomlin] and I are writing, and it’s really exciting, and I’m really excited about what we’re doing.”
Reeves is currently working on the script with Mattson Tomlin, and recently signed a large deal with DC Studios to develop the Batverse. This already has a number of spinoffs in the works, like The Penguin and Arkham Asylum shows.
We do know that the Penguin spin-off starring Colin Farrell will directly set up the sequel. “There’s actually a whole little fabric of things we’re wanting to do, the way we’re doing with [the] Penguin and how that comes back into how that will lead into the sequel, and what that sequel is going to be,” Reeves revealed.
The Batman universe won’t be connected to the rest of the DCU. “It’s one of our jobs, mine and Peter’s, to come in and make sure the DCU is connected, in film, television, gaming, and animation. That the characters are consistent, played by the same actors, and it works within one story,” said Gunn in the announcement video. “If something is outside of that, like Matt Reeves’ Batman, or Todd Phillips’ Joker, or Teen Titans Go, that it is clearly labelled as DC Elseworlds, outside of the mainstream DCU continuity.”
Who is the cast of The Batman 2?
The Batman 2 will see Robert Pattinson returns as Bruce Wayne/The Batman. Jeffrey Wright and Andy Serkis will likely return as Lieutenant James Gordon and Batman’s loyal butler and mentor Alfred Pennyworth respectively.
Zoë Kravitz may return as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, but she has left Gotham City for Blüdhaven. Colin Farrell as The Penguin has a full dc show coming on HBO Max. He is going to play an important role in the sequel.
Paul Dano could appear in a limited role behind the bars of Arkham Asylum as The Riddler, accompanied by his new friend ‘Unseen Arkham Prisoner’ aka The Joker played by Barry Keoghan.
We only saw a small tease of Joker in the closing moments of The Batman. However, it is reported that he will team up with The Riddler in the future.
