The Batman 2 is still secure, according to a new source, despite the huge changes James Gunn and Peter Safran are doing at DC Studios. The Dark Knight returned to the big screen earlier this year with Robert Pattinson’s portrayal of Bruce Wayne in The Batman. The focus of Matt Reeves’ most recent Batman adaptation, which was directed, was on a younger Bruce during his second year as Gotham City’s renowned vigilante.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, DC Studios’ assessment of their plans for the DC Universe won’t have an impact on The Batman 2. According to the trade, Gunn and Safran, who are leading the drive for DC Studios, won’t have an impact on Reeves’ sequel, which obtained approval earlier this year.
Furthermore, this won’t affect Reeves’ spinoff shows based on the Batman universe, such as the upcoming The Penguin HBO Max drama. Warner Bros. Discovery and DC Studios have not yet provided any remarks in response to the story.
