It is more and more likely that the commencement of filming THE BATMAN: PART II is going to be delayed.
Via his Threads account, DC Studio’s James Gunn was asked about the status of the upcoming Matt Reeves-helmed Bat-film and responded by saying he’s heard the pitch, but there’s no script yet…
This is not a surprise to me and if you listened to the latest episode (#145) of THE BOF SOCIAL HOUR podcast, you wouldn’t either. On the show, I said that I had heard that the script was likely still being worked on and was not finished. So instead of filming beginning in March of ’24, it would be moved back until mid/summer-ish of next year. Listen via the player below starting at the 5:29 mark.
What I have NOT heard at all is that TB2’s release date is going to be pushed back. As of now, I still expect it to hit theaters on its original release date of October 3, 2025…which is still a year and 10 months away. Stay tuned. – Bill “Jett” Ramey
