A recent report from Variety suggested that DC Studios co-CEOs James Gunn and Peter Safran were set to include Robert Pattinson’s Batman in their new DC Universe. However, Gunn has taken to social media to shoot down those rumors.
In a recent series of tweets, Gunn praised Variety’s Adam B. Vary, but said that the story from Variety was “entirely untrue.” The story in question noted that a well-placed source said that Gunn and Safran were “exploring the possibility” of incorporating Matt Reeves’ iteration of Batman into the wider DC Universe.
The next DC Universe release will be Shazam! Fury of the Gods, which releases on March 17, 2023. It will be followed by The Flash, starring the troubled Ezra Miller, Blue Beetle, and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. The future afterward is currently uncertain as Gunn and Safran decide upon their 10-year plan for the DCU, and who will be included in it.
