James Gunn Dispels Speculations About Clayface Hush Dick Grayson Professor Pyg and Scarecrow in The Batman 2

With the debut of ‘Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom,’ the DCEU officially concludes, paving the way for a new era led by James Gunn in the rebranded DCU. However, not all upcoming DC character projects will be part of this new cinematic universe. Notably, Matt Reeves’ ventures into the dark and gritty world of Batman will be classified under “Elseworlds” stories—a deliberate decision by Reeves, maintaining continuity with Pattison’s Batman not being part of the DCEU. Gunn, known for clarifying fan queries, recently addressed a spicy rumor about potential villains in ‘The Batman 2,’ debunking the claims made by scooper Daniel Richtman regarding the inclusion of Professor Pyg and Scarecrow alongside Clayface, Hush, and Dick Grayson.

While the absence of Dick Grayson disappointed many fans, there’s a consensus that the project is in an early development stage, making specific details like this subject to change. A sequel to ‘The Batman’ was officially announced at CinemaCon in April 2022, with Robert Pattinson and director Matt Reeves set to return.

Mattson Tomlin, a co-writer of the original film, is also returning to co-write the script for the sequel, titled ‘The Batman – Part II,’ scheduled for release in the United States on October 3, 2025. Despite initial plans for filming in November 2023 at Warner Bros. Studios, Leavesden in England, a delay until March 2024 was incurred due to the Writer Guild of America strike.
