As per the trade,
Robert Pattinson’s Batman return is set as Warner Bros. has announced Matt Reeves’ “The Batman Part II” will open in theaters on Oct. 3, 2025. Additional information, including a plot synopsis, remains under wraps for now. James Gunn and Peter Safran confirmed “The Batman Part II” release date during a press event on the Warner Bros. lot on Jan. 30.
I’m really looking forward to this one, and I genuinely hope get at least a third to make a trilogy. I’m also fine with there being no subtitle and going back to a more classic Part II, which does make me think there’s a part 3 or even 4 to come later. We also know this universe is being expanded into at least one TV series (The Penguin) and perhaps an Arkham series also.

As you already likely know The Batman Part II will be classified as an ‘Elseworlds’ tale. In other words, as we’d already heard, The Batman universe will remain separate from the newly minted DCU.
Joker and its sequel will fall under the same banner, but dolt expect a ton of Elseworlds movies. As co-DCU boss James Gunn said yesterday, the bar to getting an Elseworlds tale greenlit will be high, i.e. it needs to be such a good idea it’s worth making it not in the DCU.
What does remain to be seen is whether Aquaman 2 and Blue Beetle will be classified as Elseworlds or DCU. We know The Flash will be the ‘reboot point’ of this new DCU. However Aquaman 2 comes after that, so it’s astill a bit of a weird one. I guess that wil all simplify very quickly once we get into the first piece of DCU content.
Of course for now, the good news is that we have a title for The Batman 2 and a release date.
