The Batman 2 Details, Release Date
Robert Pattinson's "The Batman Part II" Is Officially Coming in 2025
When "The Batman" arrived in theaters in March 2022, Robert Pattinson's take on the Caped Crusader joined the many other adaptations of Batman that have hit the big screen over the years. For the most part, every recent iteration of Batman has received at least one sequel continuing the story of Bruce Wayne and his fight against the baddies of Gotham, and in April 2022, Warner Bros. confirmed that Pattinson's version would get a second film, too. On Jan. 31, DC Studios announced the movie is officially titled "The Batman Part II" and will be released in October 2025.
Before the sequel announcement, the cast and crew of the production made it clear that they were definitely on board for a follow-up film. "You don't make [movie] number one as if there's going to be number two," director Matt Reeves told The Independent on the premiere red carpet. "You have to make number one as if you are swinging for the fences, and it has to be a movie that stands and lives on its own. But I really believe in what we've done, and I'd be excited to tell more stories. . . . We have started talking about another movie."
Reeves noted in the same interview that other spinoffs of "The Batman" are in the works. "We are already telling other stories in the streaming space, we're doing stuff on HBO Max, we're doing a Penguin show with Colin [Farrell], which is gonna be super cool. And we're working on some other stuff, too," Reeves said. In October 2022, DC announced that Cristin Milioti was joining Farrell in that series.
So, what can we expect from the upcoming sequel? The cast seem to have a few ideas. In a video interview with Vanity Fair, they joked about who might be the villains in a potential sequel. "I was definitely kind of thinking Court of Owls is probably gonna be in the sequel," Pattinson said. Paul Dano, who plays the Riddler in "The Batman," agreed: "Court of Owls would be dope!"
The Court of Owls, mostly seen in more modern Batman comics, are a secret society of wealthy Gothamites and the assassins they hire — and it's a Batman foe that haven't been adapted yet for any major film. More likely, however, is a payoff of that tease at the end of the movie hinting at the arrival of another iconic Batman villain with Barry Keoghan as the Joker. We'll have to wait and see what happens when the sequel to "The Batman" is released.
