Robert Pattinson will not be returning to Gotham City until 2026.

The comic book sequel for the series “The Batman” will not be seeing a 2025 release as initially expected. The latest, “The Batman Part II” was set to hit theaters in October of the year but will now see a theatrical release in 2026.

In addition to the big move, Warner Bros. shuffled other titles on the release schedule including Maggie Gyllenhaal’s “The Bride,” starring Christian Bale, Jessie Buckley, and Peter Sarsgaard will take the previous sequel’s spot on October 3, 2025.

And “Alto Knights,” a mob drama starring Robert De Niro as two different mob bosses, has relocated from Nov. 15, 2024 to March 21, 2025.

The studio has added the latest film from Paul Thomas Anderson to its schedule as well, marking its date for August 8, 2025. The title from Warner Bros. will be An Untitled Paul Thomas Anderson Event Film,” will be released in Imax. Little is known about the project, though it features the sprawling cast of Leonardo DiCaprio, Sean Penn, Regina Hall, Teyana Taylor and Alana Haim. Production on Anderson’s latest is underway in California, where nearly all of the filmmaker’s movies are set.

Matt Reeves has returned to the latest addition for Batman. It is still unclear on who will be playing in the sequel aside from Pattinson.

The first film shed light on Bruce Wayne’s earlier days as “the world’s greatest detective” starred Zoë Kravitz as Catwoman, Andy Serkis as Batman’s butler Alfred Pennyworth, Colin Farrell as the crime lord known as Penguin and Jeffrey Wright as Gotham City’s police chief James Gordon.


“The Batman” was a box office smash bringing in $772 million globally.
