Oh, James Gunn just can’t catch a break from those pesky rumor mill folks! This time, the DC Studios co-chair had to resort to social media to shut down one of the wildest rumors flying around about The Batman: Part II.

Since the announcement of The Batman: Part II, the rumor train has been chugging full steam ahead with all sorts of wild stories, but James Gunn isn’t having any of it. He’s already debunked so many rumors, from Professor Pyg to Scarecrow, that it’s practically become his full-time job. And now, the latest ridiculous rumor suggested that he himself canceled his own project! Can you believe it? Well, Gunn had to respond with an exasperated “No. ” on Threads. Poor guy.

Now, let’s take a step back and think about this for a minute. Why on earth would James Gunn cancel The Batman: Part II after the massive success of the first film? That would be like shooting himself in the foot, or swinging a bat (pun intended) and hitting himself in the face! It just doesn’t make any sense. So, let’s all collectively breathe a sigh of relief and hope that this puts an end to all the crazy speculation about which projects are getting canned.

What Lies Ahead for Robert Pattinson’s Caped Crusader?

If you remember, the first movie left us with Batman triumphantly apprehending the Riddler, who had flooded Gotham City with his shenanigans. But what does that mean for Part II? Right now, we don’t have many details to munch on, but we do know that Matt Reeves is co-writing the script of the sequel with Mattson Tomlin. And brace yourselves for the release date because according to those in the know at DC Studios, The Batman: Part II is set to grace theaters in October 2025. We can hardly contain our excitement!

Now, let’s talk numbers. The first movie was an absolute box office smash, raking in a staggering $770.8 million worldwide. That’s huge! In fact, it’s the seventh highest-grossing movie of 2022. So, canceling The Batman: Part II would be like DC Studios waving goodbye to piles of cash. Not gonna happen, people!
