Here is what we currently know about The Batman 2, the follow-up to the critically acclaimed 2013 film starring Robert Pattinson as Batman.
After more than five years of development, Batman appeared in theatres last year. The revitalized portrayal of the enduring vigilante from DC Comics introduces fans to Robert Pattinson’s portrayal and marks the beginning of a trilogy.
The trip to stop The Riddler was filled with surprises for Batman, but in the upcoming movie, the World’s Greatest Detective might have to confront a difficulty that has never been seen on the big screen.

On October 3, 2025, The Batman Part II will be released. James Gunn and Peter Safran revealed the release date as part of their new DC universe schedule.
Reeves recently inked a significant agreement with DC Studios to build the “Batverse,” which already has several spinoffs in the works, like The Penguin and Arkham Asylum series. Reeves is now collaborating on the project with Mattson Tomlin.
Producer Dylan Clark also assured fans that the follow-up would arrive quicker. Speaking to ComicBook’s Brandon Davis, Clark said: “I will go on record and say that it will be less than five years.”
In an interview with Collider, Reeves recently acknowledged that he is actively writing a script for the upcoming Batman movie.
“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 fascinating, and I’m excited about what we’re doing.”
Batman’s journey to the big screen was anything from smooth. The standalone Batman adventure, given to Matt Reeves, originally began as a DCEU project with Ben Affleck attached. The groundwork has been laid, and the stage is now ready for an exciting adventure to follow the 2022 smash.
What Will Be The Plot of Batman 2?
In a way that no other Batman movie has attempted, Batman places our hero and Gotham City in an unusual situation. Bella Reál may have survived The Riddler’s attempts to kill her, but Gotham is fully flooded. Bruce Wayne may have stopped The Riddler’s ambitions.
Gotham City is susceptible to a terrible hostile takeover, which was undoubtedly inspired by Scott Snyder’s New 52 run Zero Year and the well-known No Man’s Land plot.
The Court of Owls and potential sidekick Dick Grayson have drawn interest from Matt Reeves and Robert Pattinson (AKA Robin). The Court of Owls is a shadowy organization that has been manipulating Gotham for many years, made up of the wealthiest families and corrupt social groups.
This corrupt society would be squarely introduced in Matt Reeves’ wheelhouse because he has demonstrated a remarkable capacity for managing grandiose scale.
Dick Grayson’s inclusion in the Court would be a novel method to introduce the character, albeit it would be a significant change from Robin’s familiar origin story.
Children from the Circus are regularly abducted by the Court and trained to become Talons or highly trained assassins. Given that Grayson’s roots are in the circus performance The Flying Grayson, it would undoubtedly be a daring move.
Who Will Be In The Batman 2 Cast, And Will There Be Any New Characters?
When the movie ultimately comes out, Robert Pattinson will reprise his role as Bruce Wayne/Batman in The Batman 2 as Batman’s devoted butler Alfred Pennyworth and Lieutenant James Gordon, respectively; Jeffrey Wright and Andy Serkis will probably make another appearance.
Selina Kyle/Catwoman may return, although she has moved from Gotham City to Blüdhaven, where Nightwing will eventually make his home. The Penguin, played by Colin Farrell, will be the next character to be featured in his HBO Max series, and they will undoubtedly be staking their claim to Gotham’s criminal underworld.
The Riddler, played by Paul Dano, might make a brief appearance in Arkham Asylum’s prison along with Barry Keoghan’s The Joker, The Riddler’s new pal.
The latter’s appearance in The Batman was only a tease. Still, the movie’s companion website Rataalada (featured in the film), has decoded a message that hints we’ll eventually see them working together.
