The DCU is going through plenty of changes at DC Studios thanks to new co-heads James Gunn and Peter Safran. And although many properties will be affected by these changes, it’s been revealed that the sequel to The Batman will be safe.
Specifically, as revealed via THR, James Gunn and Peter Safran are apparently leaving the sequel to The Batman alone. This should satisfy fans that were worried the sequel to The Batman would mixed up in the ongoing studio chaos. Of course, as we’ve learned, that could always change. But for now the sequel to The Batman seems safe.
As noted below:
“One part that the Gunn-Safran agenda seems likely not to touch, at least for now, is the Matt Reeves Batman universe in which Robert Pattinson dons the cowl of the Caped Crusader.”
They further note that The Batman director Matt Reeves is currently busy working on the sequel’s script. Additionally, as noted, The Batman was the start of an entirely new Batman universe. As such, not only will the sequel be untouched for now, but the upcoming related shows should continue as planned as well.
The aforementioned spin-off shows include The Penguin, which will follow Colin Farrell’s take on the titular character, as well as an untitled Arkham series. It’s currently expected that the Arkham series would focus on the Arkham State Hospital featured in The Batman. And, as a result, both of these shows will further flesh out the universe starring Robert Pattinson as Batman.
Fans can stay tuned to ScreenGeek for additional updates regarding the development of The Batman 2 and its related spin-off shows as we have them. For now, however, it should put fans at rest to know that James Gunn and Peter Safran will not be tampering with these highly-anticipated projects. Let’s hope that more news comes soon.
