The Batman Sequel Gets Massive Delay

The Batman Sequel Gets Massive Delay

The Batman starring Robert Pattinson was a massive hit when it came out in 2022, and everyone was excited for the sequel following up to this new, grimy, Caped Crusader. Originally, The Batman Part II was announced for a release in 2025, but the movie has just gotten a huge delay.

Deadline reports that The Batman sequel is moving from its original release date of October 3, 2025 to October 2, 2026. The reason for the delay is said to be the dual WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes that took place last year.

Some also say that this further release will give some room from the new DCU continuity that James Gunn and Peter Safran are kickstarting with Superman. Not to mention there is also a different Dark Knight film with Andy Muschietti called Batman: Brave and the Bold, which will have a new actor that isn’t Pattinson.

For now, it’s being said that Matt Reeves’ version of Batman is going to be part of an ‘Elseworlds’ brand for DC—which will also include Todd Phillips’ Joker movies.  It’s unclear where Gunn wants to take everything, but it does look like he and Safran are trying to future-proof the franchise by allowing light to be shed on lesser-known characters while at the same time releasing films for the more popular established DC icons.

Let’s just hope that the management in WB is going all-in on his plan, as compared to Zack Snyder who had a plan, but was beat down by studio meddling and blamed for the franchise’s failure.

The Batman Part II is set to release in theatres Oct. 2, 2026.
