The Batman 2: release date, plot, cast, trailer

Following success The Batman in 2022, a sequel from Warner Bros. Pictures are unavoidable. Even DC Studios led by James Gunn and Peter Safran wouldn’t thwart director Matt Reeves’ plans for Batman 2which has been given an official title Batman Part II.

Robert Pattinson will once again play Bruce Wayne and his alter ego, Batman. Additionally, there are still several questions for the upcoming sequel. To sort the facts from the rumors, we’ve put together this summary that shares everything we know Batman Part II so far.

When is The Batman Part II coming out?

Warner Bros. Pictures

Formally, Batman Part II it is planned to be released on October 3, 2025. Unofficially, it will probably be very difficult for the film to reach that date. Warner Bros. Pictures announced the film’s October 2025 debut in January 2023, five months before the writers’ strike kicked off six months of labor strife in Hollywood. The original plan was to Batman Part II to start production in November 2023. This would allow it to easily reach the 2025 date.

At the moment, Batman Part II has not yet begun production, and no new cast has been announced. There are unconfirmed reports that the film will begin shooting in March 2024, but Warner Bros. has not confirmed or denied this. But the longer the film goes without being made, the less likely it is to hit theaters next year.

What is the plot of The Batman Part II?

It’s too early to say. There’s no confirmation yet on who the main villain will be, or what happens beyond the continued evolution of Robert Pattinson’s Bruce Wayne/Batman. The Batman ended with Pattinson’s Dark Knight being seen in a more heroic light by the people of Gotham City, so perhaps the sequel will start with that status quo.

When Warner Bros. announced Batman 2 as of April 2022, only Pattinson is confirmed to return as Bruce Wayne/Batman. Regardless, the following cast members will almost certainly return: Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Colin Farrell as Oswald Cobblepot, aka The Penguin. Farrell also starred in the spin-off series Max, Penguinwhich will chronicle Cobblepot’s rise to the top of Gotham’s criminal underworld.

Zoë Kravitz may return as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, but it’s also possible that Reeves will delay her return to give Bruce a new love interest. Barry Keoghan has a brief cameo as The Joker The Batman, which sets up his possible alliance with Paul Dano’s Riddler. However, at this time, neither Keoghan nor Dano have been confirmed for the sequel.

Is there a trailer for The Batman Part II?

In fact, the earliest trailer we might see might be mid-March 2025 to April 2025 at CinemaCon next year. That’s assuming so Batman Part II could start shooting in the near future and meet an October 2025 release date. If the film slides into 2026, it’s likely the trailer will be delayed as well.

Jeffrey Wright has not seen the script

Don’t hold your breath waiting Batman 2 to hit theaters… or even to start filming. One of the key actors from the first film who will return hasn’t even read the full script. In a interview with Entertainment Tonightrecent Oscar-nominated actor Jeffrey Wright commented that he had not seen a Batman 2 scenario.

“You’ve seen the script as much as I have at this point,” said Wright, who plays Batman ally James Gordon in the 2022 film. “I don’t want to jump ahead. I just want to keep it going.”

“Obviously, I’m Lieutenant Gordon at the end of the film, the first film, so maybe our ratings will go up, I guess, but I haven’t seen anything yet,” he added. “I’m being patient, letting (director) Matt Reeves do his thing – which is going to be magical and amazing – and look forward to getting back to it when the time comes.”
