Nobody was surprised to learn that Andy Serkis would play Alfred Pennyworth again in The Batman: Part II. During a recent interview with GQ, Matt Reeves, who is co-writing and directing the forthcoming Batman film, revealed his return as the venerable DC Comics superhero.
Andy Serkis made his film debut as Alfred Pennyworth in The Batman. He is best known for his motion-capture roles as Gollum in The Lord of the Rings and Caesar in the Planet of the Apes series. The persona is Bruce Wayne, a.k.a. Batmandevoted,’s butler and confidant.
Robert Pattinson played the title character in the first episode of The Batman, donning the recognizable cape and cowl and giving the role a darker, broodier tone. Fans were thrilled by Pattinson‘s portrayal of Batman, and many are eager to see how the Twilight star approaches the role in the follow-up.
The sequel will be directed by Matt Reeves, who also helmed the original Batman movie. Reeves has received praise for his talent for developing interesting, emotionally complex characters. He is best known for his work on the Cloverfield and Planet of the Apes film series. In addition, he and Mattson Tomlin are co-writing the script for The Batman: Part II.
The Riddler had inundated Gotham City as the first movie ended with Batman capturing him. Although if the sequel’s premise is being kept a secret, it is safe to presume that the story will continue where the original one did.
The Batman: Part II is scheduled to open in theaters on October 20, 2025, according to the heads of DC Studios. The first movie made $770.8 million at the box office globally after it debuted in theaters in March 2022, ranking it as the seventh highest-grossing film of the year.
