Matt Reeves and Robert Pattinson will head back to Gotham City for The Batman: Part II as soon as this August, according to reports. More here. 

Matt Reeves’ The Batman was one of the highlights of 2022. Robert Pattinson’s Caped Crusader made superhero films feel exciting again, and with the film doing well at the box office, a sequel was inevitable. 

We’ve known for a while that the sequel is heading to cinemas in October 2025, and it looks like Reeves and Pattinson are heading back to Gotham City this August as the sequel reportedly begins production. 

Bear in mind that the information is based on a leak, spotted and reported by World Of Reel, but the timeline would make sense. Originally, it was rumoured that The Batman Part II would head into production in March 2024, but with cameras rolling in August now, that October 2025 release date might still change

Zoë Kravitz, Andy Serkis, Jeffrey Wright, Colin Farrell are all expected to come back, as is Barry Keoghan as the Joker, although the actor has been very tight lipped about his return. Keoghan popped up at the very end of the first film as Gotham’s Clown Prince of Crime. No word on whether or not Paul Dano would reprise his role as The Riddler. 

The Batman was a huge hit with both audiences and critics. The film grossed an impressive $770.9 million worldwide and holds an 85 percent critics’ score on Rotten Tomatoes. Pattinson proved to be a dynamic Bruce Wayne and a menacing Batman. Colin Farrell’s The Penguin proved popular as well, and a TV show centred on the character is set to be released sometime this year

We know very little about the plot of The Batman Part II. In fact, in December, there wasn’t even a script yet, but Reeves has until February to submit one to new DC chief James Gunn. Reeves’ Batman films will continue to exist separately from Gunn’s planned DC Universe, much to the delight of fans who were concerned the sequel would have to factor in Gunn’s upcoming Superman film or other superheroes roaming around the DCU.
