In an interview with Comicbook.com, Reeves confirmed that he is currently working on the sequel’s script as well as several other potential spin-offs. This was welcome news for the DC fandom as Reeves also revealed that he and Mattson Tomlin were working hard on finishing the sequel’s script in time.

Robert Pattinson is all set to return to Batman 2 as Bruce Wayne. While the return of other cast members hasn’t been confirmed yet, it’s more likely than not that we will be seeing Zoë Kravitz, Jeffery Wright and Andy Serkis reprising their roles of Catwoman, Jim Gordon and Alfred, respectively.
Fans are also wondering who will play the antagonist in the sequel. In multiple interviews, Reeves has already hinted at the characters he would love to add to his films, one of which could be the supervillain Hush. In another interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Reeves also shared how there will be new movies around new villains in the DC Extended Universe.
It must also be mentioned that there have been no specific mentions of the official title of The Batman sequel yet.
New faces in the DCEU and what the future beholds
Ever since James Gunn and Peter Safran took over DC Studios, there has been a major shuffling of plans. Films like Wonder Woman 3 have been cancelled, while actors like Henry Cavil and Dwayne Johnson have confirmed that they won’t be reprising their roles in the near future.
However, Gunn also said, “As for more answers about the future of the DCU, I will sadly have to ask you to wait. We are giving these characters & the stories the time & attention they deserve & we ourselves still have a lot more questions to ask & answer.”
