Rumors are that James Gunn is looking for a new actor to pass on the mantle of Batman for his new DCU. There have been a ton of fan casting around DCU's Batman but none of it has been confirmed as of now. However, James Gunn has a habit of casting B-list actors in his movies so we can expect the unexpected but also, he is known for really listening to the fandom so who knows, we might get to see certain someone whom fans have been rooting for to be the next Batman?
Earlier this week, Yuhki Demers, one of the visual developers for the Spider-verse movies took to X to share three concept art images for a Batman Beyond animated movie his team pitched to Warner Bros. Studios. The concept art shows us breathtaking images, drawing a clear inspiration from Spider-man animated movies. However, the pitch is still in process and has not been greenlit yet.
Back in 2022, it was confirmed that Matt Reeves' The Batman will build a whole universe of its own. The first announcement included The Penguin spinoff series and along with it another spinoff called The Arkham Asylum. Recently, James Gunn has confirmed that Arkham Asylum will be set in the DCU along with other upcoming DCU Projects. Arkham Asylum does not have an official release date yet.
