Matt Reeves and Robert Pattinson's BatVerse will not be part of James Gunn's DC Universe

The Batman director says he will soon be meeting with James Gunn and Peter Safran to keep their universes from "crashing" in the coming years.

Matt Reeves and Robert Pattinson's BatVerse will not be part of James Gunn's DC Universe

DC is in the process of a deep restructuring both in film and television after the appointment of James Gunn and Peter Safran as the heads of the new DC Studios. And the first actions have not waited long with the cancellation of films in full production, the definitive departure of Henry Cavill as Superman -even after announcing weeks before his return- or the farewell of Dwayne Johnson's Black Adam. But what about Batman? For now, we know that Ben Affleck's Batman will appear in The Flash to say farewell definitively next to Michael Keaton's Batman. But what will happen to Matt Reeves and Robert Pattinson's most recent Batman, and will he be part of the new DC universe? The director of this new Batverse himself has already spoken out on this question.

Pattinson's Batman will remain in his own BatVerse

While James Gunn has already spoken out recently about the possibility of adding Robert Pattinson's Batman to his new universe, now it's The Batman filmmaker himself who has shared his opinion: "They've been great," says Reeves about Gunn and Safran. "We're actually supposed to meet in the next few weeks because they want to talk to me about the broad plan, and then they want to hear the BatVerse plan. We're just getting together to talk about all of that. Look, I'm excited to hear what they're going to do. The BatVerse thing, as James has said, and as Peter has said, is kind of its own thing they're letting us do," Reeves confirms.

"They're going to be talking to me about what they're doing in their ten-year plan or certainly what's in the near future as well so that we can understand that we're not—it's air traffic control—we don't want to be crashing into each other," Reeves concludes. These words would confirm that, for the moment, the BatVerse and the new DC universe of Gunn and Safran would follow independent paths, which would lead us to think that we could have a new Batman that should share movies with other superheroes like Superman, Aquaman, Flash, Wonder Woman or Green Lantern, all of them with new actors; or not. We will have to wait for James Gunn and Peter Safran’s official announcements to confirm this information.
