Preview:

  • The sequel to ‘The Batman’ will now be released in 2026.
  • Matt Reeves is once again directing.
  • Beyond Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne, the cast has yet to be confirmed.

Those who have been eagerly awaiting director Matt Reeves’ sequel to his darkly gritty take on the Caped Crusader, ‘The Batman’, will have to be more patient.

Warner Bros. has announced that the new movie will not now be released on October 3rd, 2025, but instead heads back a year to October 2nd, 2026.

What’s the status of ‘The Batman Part II’?

Part of the reason for the delay is that the ‘Batman’ sequel has reportedly just begun filming, and that Reeves has been at work on the script with Peter Craig and Mattson Tomlin. The shift from a potential shoot last year means that the production has had to wait for soundstages to be available.

Robert Pattinson is returning as Bruce Wayne, AKA Batman, though there has been little confirmation of any other casting –– Jeffrey Wright has said he’ll be back as Commissioner Jim Gordon, while we’d predict Andy Serkis once more playing loyal Wayne family butler Alfred.

The plot, however, is a mystery, and the villain for the new movie has yet to be revealed.

Also, while the film is considered an “Elseworlds” title and not directly connected to the new DC movie universe, the delay means that James Gunn’s ‘Superman’ will get a clear shot at launching the fresh DCU on the big screen with its July 11th, 2025, release date.

What of ‘The Penguin’?

This delay for ‘The Batman Part II’ hasn’t yet impacted TV spin-off ‘The Penguin’, which sees Colin Farrell playing crime boss Oswald Cobblepot. That show is still due to arrive later this year on streaming service Max.

What other Warner Bros. movies are scheduled?

With the new ‘Batman’ movie on the move, there is a hole in Warner Bros.’ schedule. The studio has now given that October 3rd, 2025, slot to ‘The Bride!’ (yes, it apparently does have an exclamation mark at the end of its total), the take on ‘Frankenstein’ to be directed by Maggie Gyllenhaal and starring Christian Bale, Jessie Buckley and Peter Sarsgaard.

Alto Knights’, Barry Levinson’s mob movie with Robert De Niro playing two different crime bosses, has set a March 21st, 2025, release.

And Paul Thomas Anderson fans will be happy to know that his new, still-to-be-titled film, which boasts Leonardo DiCaprio, Sean Penn, Regina Hall, Teyana Taylor and Alana Haim among its cast, will be in theaters on August 8th, 2025.
