James Gunn offers an update on THE BATMAN: PART II script

Batman: Part II is currently in development and the film’s script has already been finalized Matt Reeves starts shooting.

The creative team spent the time to make sure they had a quality script, and it’s nice to know that there are directors still doing it today.

Co-CEO of DC Studios James Gunn recently offered an update on the film, saying that Reeves thinks the script is ready.

Gunn took some time to respond to fans on Threads and when talking about the state of Batman: Part II confirmed that the script is still in the works. When asked when he thought the script would be finished, Gunn said, “When Matt thinks it’ll be done!”

Reeves worked on the screenplay with Mattson Tomlin (Project Potenza, Terminator Zero) and fans are curious to know what exactly they are preparing for the next chapter of the story.

Gunn previously explained that Reeves considers it “a Batman crime saga, which also includes Penguin TV series, and it’s its own thing, and he’s working hard on that.”

It was previously reported that the next two sequels of The Batman will shoot back-to-back next year in 2025, but that hasn’t been confirmed.

It has also been reported that the sequel’s story will be at least partially based on Geoff Johns’ Batman: Earth One. The first film took some inspiration from vol. 1, so I assume that means the sequel would be more influenced by volumes 2 and 3.

Batman: Earth One is set in an alternate universe where Bruce Wayne is struggling to find his purpose as the protector of Gotham City. With the help of Alfred Pennyworth, a former SAS agent, Bruce embarks on his journey to face both familiar and new villains along the way.

The story will explore Batman’s psychology as he seeks justice in Gotham. Hush is also said to be one of the big bads of the film.

I imagine the film will also be a continuation of what we see happening in The Penguin series that will be released in the near future.

Movie stars Robert Pattinson as Batman, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Andy Serkis like Alfredo, Jeffrey Wright like Jim Gordon, and Colin Farrell like Penguin.

Batman: Part II its release is currently scheduled for October 2, 2026.
