Daniel RPK addressed getting the rumors wrong on Twitter.

“As for The Batman 2 stuff. Everyone get stuff wrong. I will own to it. Like with most of my stuff I got that info from a grid and while those are usually correct they could have wrong info on them once in awhile,” he said.

It’s known Matt Reeves is developing an Arkham series set in Gunn’s DCU, so maybe we’ll find some of those villains in there.

Still waiting on the script

Regarding what is going on with The Batman 2, Matt Reeves hasn’t turned in a finished script.

 “I heard a pitch. No script yet,” Gunn previous answered on Threads in response to a fan questioning, “What about The Batman 2? Have you read any drafts or heard of any developments?”

 A fan also questioned Gunn, “Why isn’t [director Matt] Reeves’ The Batman allowed to exist within the new DCU?”

“It’s not an ‘allowed’ thing,” Gunn responded. “It’s Matt’s choice, and we respect that.”

The Batman Part II has an Oct. 3, 2025 release date.
