Following last night's report about The Batman - Part II's potential production start date and Clayface's involvement, we have another, far juicier rumor about another classic Batman character.
MTTSH is now claiming that Matt Reeves' highly-anticipated sequel will introduce a new take on the original Robin, Dick Grayson.
There has only been one previous big-screen incarnation of Grayson, Chris O'Donnell in Batman Forever and Batman and Robin, but the character has appeared in numerous animated projects, as well as the likes of Titans and the classic '60s Batman TV series.
If accurate, Robin's involvement would be somewhat surprising, since Robert Pattinson's Bruce Wayne wasn't supposed to have been operating as Batman for very long in the first film. Of course, there could be a significant time jump before the events of the sequel.
When the new DCU slate was announced, James Gunn confirmed that Reeves' "BatVerse" will remain separate from the DCU, so this movie, along with Todd Phillips' Joker sequel, will be considered "Elseworlds" tales. A new actor will down the cape and cowl for Batman: The Brave and the Bold, which will also feature a different take on Robin - The Caped Crusader's son, Damian Wayne.
Robert Pattinson, Zoë Kravitz, Andy Serkis, Jeffrey Wright, and Colin Farrell are all expected to reprise their respective roles, and we may also see the return of Barry Keoghan's Joker, who made his sinister debut in the first movie's mid-credits scene.
Plot details are still under wraps. All Reeves would offer is that his sequel will continue this "epic crime saga."
