The Batman Part 2: Jeffrey Wright Discusses Potential Commissioner Gordon Story Angle

Jeffrey Wright has shared some thoughts regarding where he’d like to see Commissioner James Gordon go in Matt ReevesThe Batman Part II.

Speaking with Discussing Film, Wright was asked if there was anything he was hoping to see from Commissioner Gordon in the forthcoming sequel.

What did Jeffrey Wright say about The Batman Part II?

“Well, it’s probably not a good idea to get too far ahead of Matt [Reeves],” Wright answered. “One of the things that I’ve spoken about with him a little bit is, in playing the role, I wondered about his private life and I wonder about people who have the level of responsibility that he has, having that public face of rectitude and goodness. I wonder what lies underneath Commissioner Gordon because the Batman wears his cowl but, in some ways, Gordon wears a mask too.

“Gordon represents justice in a way through his type of righteousness, not sanctimony, and I wonder what might lie behind that mask with the sacrifices that he may have to consider because he gives so much to this public persona and his civic duty. What’s the bearing of all that on him, underneath his mask? Those are questions that might be interesting to pursue, but we’ll see. I’m looking forward to the opportunity to read and dive back into it, but I know as much as you know about it at the moment. We’ll get there!”

The Batman Part II is once again being directed by Reeves. Robert Pattinson will return as The Dark Knight/Bruce Wayne, while further casting has not been announced at this time. A spin-off series, The Penguin, that follows Colin Farrell’s Oswald Cobblepot is also releasing in 2024.

The Batman Part II currently has an October 3, 2025, release date. The Batman, released in 2022, is currently streaming on Max and Netflix.
