Robert Pattinson will be donning the cape and cowl again very soon as The Batman: Part II will begin filming this coming November.
According to Production Weekly, The Batman: Part II is set to start shooting in November at Warner Bros. Levensden Studios, which is one of the same studios they used for The Batman. The first movie filmed extensively at this studio, using five stages and their backlot to help bring Gotham City to life.
During James Gunn’s and Peter Safran’s recent announcements about the future of the DC Universe, it was revealed that the sequel would be coming out in October of 2025 — the same year as Superman: Legacy is set to hit. This, along with the upcoming Joker sequel, Joker: Folie à Deux, will be part of DC’s Elseworlds label, separating them from the rest of the DCU, including the announced Batman: Brave and the Bold movie, which will see Batman teaming up with his son Damian Wayne, aka Robin.
This isn’t the only The Batman project coming to life, as the upcoming HBO Max series The Penguin is currently underway with Colin Farrell reprising his role as the titular gangster, Oswald Cobblepot. It’s being said that this series will take place about a week after the events of the first film, and will tie into the second.
The Batman starred Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Zoë Kravitz as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Colin Farrell as Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin, Paul Dano as Edward Nashton/The Riddler, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon, and John Turturro as Carmine Falcone. It is expected that we will see Robert Pattinson, Andy Serkis, and Jeffrey Wright return to there roles for the sequel, and with the spin-off series, The Penguin, tying in, we’ll most likely see Colin Farrell as well. The question remains, however, as to whether or not we will see a return of Zoë Kravitz’s Catwoman and Paul Dano’s Riddler.
The Batman: Part II will hit theaters on October 3, 2025.
