Matt Reeves’ sequel to The Batman, now titled Batman – Part II, has an official release date. The highly anticipated follow-up to Robert Pattinson’s drowning role in the Caped Crusader will be released on October 3, 2025.
This announcement was part of the unveiling of Warner Bros.’s plan. Discovery’s broader take on the new DC Universe and its various side projects, more than one of which features Batman. In addition to announcing the release date, DCU architects James Gunn and Peter Safran have also confirmed that Batman will be a trilogy.
Matt is working on it [The Batman – Part II], which he believes is the Batman crime saga, which also includes the Penguin TV series,” Gunn explained. And that’s his thing and he works really hard on it. He came and did some really cool and wonderful things for us that day. So our plan is for that to continue.”
Safran added, “Batman is not the stepson. I mean, it’s all under DC’s management.” “We are fully invested in the success of Batman, just like everything else.”
Reeves has reportedly been interested in turning The Batman into a trilogy since at least 2019, having previously discussed his ideas for a full Batman arc. Earlier this month, it was confirmed that the films are separate from Gunn and Safran’s new DCU.
