When the news came out of Robert Pattinson, a ‘vampire’, playing Batman, there were widespread apprehensions and tensions among the fans of DC. Not everyone was sure that he would be able to pull it off. However, surprisingly The Batman was a hit and was praised for its fresh take on the Batman mythos.
Despite the doubts, Pattinson did a splendid job of playing the Gotham vigilante and was praised for his dark and gritting acting. Scheduled to star in its sequel, Pattinson once made a stern demand with regards to the future sequel, hinting at the potential introduction of a famous DC character in Batman II and beyond.
Robert Pattinson’s Stern Demand For Batman II
Pattinson’s Batman II is scheduled to be released on October 3, 2025. While not much has been confirmed about the highly anticipated sequel, there have been rumors that it would be introducing newer characters, both good ones and bad ones introducing Harvey Dent aka Two-Face.
It even hints at the return of everyone’s favorite villain, the Joker. Despite the potential new and exciting characters, fans have been demanding to see another of their favorite character aka Robin in the potential sequels. And even the movie’s lead, Robert Pattinson has placed a stern demand to have him feature in the future sequels.
Last year in a special panel, when asked if he would want to see Robin in his Batman movies, the star stated,
“Yeah, but he has to be 13. That’s the only way I’ll accept it. No, I love Death in the Family and stuff, but I think it’d be so cool. Also people are so scared of it, but it’s kind of exciting. I think it would be a really fun addition.”
Pattinson said as he referred to the most memorable yet tragic storyline of the Batman universe, where Jason Todd aka Robin is brutally killed off by Joker.

Will Robin Be There In Batman II?
While Joker, Two-Face, and even Hush are potentially expected to make an appearance in the sequel, there have been no rumors or reports of the storyline introducing Robin. While Pattinson did state that he would love to have Robin, the Twilight star didn’t mention if he would be there in Batman II.
However, Matt Reeves, the director, did seem to agree with his lead and hinted at the chances of introducing Robin somewhere in the storyline. While the production of Batman II has been delayed in light of the ongoing strikes, fans expect that Robin aka Jason Todd will be making an appearance in the potential threequel if not the sequel.
Batman II is expected to be released on October 3, 2025.
