What"s Going On With The Batman 2?

  • The Batman 2 is still happening, despite rumors - James Gunn has confirmed the sequel is not canceled.
  • Production delays shifted the release date to October 2026, with filming expected to start in April 2025.
  • Speculations and rumors surrounding villains, cast, and plot have been debunked by James Gunn.
The Batman - Part II has had minimal updates since its announcement, begging the question of what's going on with the production. The Batman - Part II's story was first announced shortly after the first movie became a success for Warner Bros. In January 2023, James Gunn's DCU slate was revealed, with The Batman - Part II's title revealed as an Elseworlds project. This understandably caused a great deal of excitement, with many desiring a sequel that further fleshed out the characters and world of The Batman.
As one of many upcoming Batman movies or TV shows, The Batman - Part II will continue to build upon Matt Reeves' version of Gotham. The DCU will have another Batman in Gunn's Brave and the Bold adaptation, but Reeves' upcoming film will be a separate entity, stemming from the ending of The Batman. Although the film is highly anticipated, little has been revealed about the production since it was announced. Amid rumors of cancelations and production delays, here is what is happening with The Batman - Part II.

Don't Worry, The Batman 2 Is Still Happening Matt Reeves' Version Of Gotham Will Not Be Canceled Close As alluded to, the lack of updates surrounding The Batman 2 has led rumors and speculation to become rampant. These rumors have implied that The Batman - Part II will be canceled, something that became a somewhat common belief after James Gunn announced the DCU's Brave and the Bold version of Batman. Many deemed it unlikely that a franchise like the DCU would have two versions of the Caped Crusader, despite Gunn making it clear that Robert Pattinson's Batman would be an Elseworlds project.
Elseworlds is a term from DC Comics used to indicate a story that takes place outside of the main franchise canon, with Gunn reusing the phrase for non-canon DCU movies like Joker: Folie à Deux.
However, James Gunn has endlessly addressed these rumors. Gunn debunked The Batman 2's cancelation on Instagram, reassuring a concerned fan who asked the filmmaker about the movie's status. Gunn replied that the film and its planned sequel have not been canceled, putting the rumors to bed once and for all. In reality, the lack of updates surrounding The Batman - Part II is likely due to Reeves' focus on MAX's The Penguin TV show, a spin-off of the first movie that will be released before the sequel.
