DC fans are excited to see what Gunn’s DCU brings to the table but they were also anxious about one thing. And that was whether Matt Reeves’ Batman would be canceled.

    Robert Pattinson was a fan favorite as Bruce Wayne in the first ‘Batman’ and Matt Reeves’ direction was phenomenal. So why such a rumor of the movie getting canceled you might ask. Well this is because of the 2023 Hollywood strikes that stopped the industry for months and delayed productions for the sequel.

    This led to a pause in Reeves’ work on the script for the movie as well. Originally, the plan was for Robert Pattinson to film new scenes as the Dark Knight starting last November. But that also could not happen due to the strikes. So new dates have been fixed as work has been restarted again. And it seems that fans will now have to wait till 2026 to see Pattinson on screen as Batman again.
