Robert Pattinson and Matt Reeves had successfully launched their own original take on The Batman, and now fans are waiting for the sequel which is set to come out in 2025. We don’t know exactly what plot the film could be about, but we have some new rumors about who could be appearing.
According to insider Daniel RPK (via @screentime), the sequel to The Batman will reportedly be including Bruce Wayne’s first sidekick Dick Grayson a.k.a. Robin. We don’t have any more details than that, but with James Gunn’s DCU allegedly introducing Damian Wayne’s Robin, it would be interesting to see an alternate version of the Boy Wonder—especially one that exists in this dark Gotham that Reeves has built.
If anything, it does feel like the Bat-franchise has been getting cold feed when it comes to giving Batman a Robin ever since the Schumacher films. We barely got Robin in Dark Knight Rises, and Robin was already dead when we meet Batman in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman.
With some considering The Batman to be a sort of return to form for the character, from dark and broody, to someone that inspires hope in people—it does feel like an introduction of a Robin would be the next step; after all Robin does represent the start of the ‘Bat-Family’ which will then include Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood, and several other Robins.
If Reeves can manage to pull off a 13-year-old Robin partnered up with Pattinson’s Batman, I’m convinced he can pull off anything.
The Batman: Part II is set to release in theaters on Oct. 3, 2025.
