Is Superman Present In New The Batman Universe?
The Batman director Matt Reeves has previously spoken about making the film as realistic as possible for a DC story. Now he’s talking about whether there are Superman or other DC heroes in the world and whether they will be part of the upcoming episodes of the film.
In an interview with Collider , Reeves talked about how Batman’s long history has led fans to have different versions of the Dark Knight in mind. And all based on their interactions with many other DC characters over the years. Reeves believes he should now focus on “Bat-Verse” and strengthen The Batman’s world base. He want to strengthen as much as he can before adding other elements that can guarantee their best-selling movies.

Of course, this does not mean that Reeves’s version of Batman vs. Superman will never happen, it just does not look like it will be made in the near future.
I think in the future films can be connected to something else, but I was not looking for such a thing for this film and I am not interested in pursuing such topics in future episodes.
I feel like our whole goal with these incredible actors and this incredible cast is to make new and different versions of the characters follow each other’s story. There are a lot of great characters in Gotham’s world, so I really like that right now. Rely on such a world.
Although we should not expect a brief (Cameo) or sequel or spin-off with Superman. But is there Superman in the world that Reeves creates? Reeves spoke a little about this answer, stating that he focused on keeping the story as grounded as possible. And by introducing just one extraordinary element so as not to make it too unrealistic.
In this film, even beyond what I did in [Planet of the Apes and Cloverfield], I tried to find a practical and believable version. If you suddenly realize in the world of Batman that there is a space creature that is Superman, you will be very shocked. I mean, people say to themselves, “Oh my God,” and maybe that’s a wonderful element.
Batman will be released on March 4, 2022 , and will be available to all HBO Max subscribers on April 19, 2022 , just 45 days after its release in theaters worldwide. The initial reactions to the film have been very promising .
