John Oliver has some ideas for DC co-heads James Gunn and Peter Safran as to who should be their next Batman.

On the latest episode of Last Week Tonight, Oliver discussed the Supreme Court agreeing to take on Donald Trump’s immunity case and whether ex-presidents can be prosecuted. The HBO late-night show host said that the answer was an obvious, “Yes!”

Oliver went on to cite other obvious answers like, “Did Robert Durst kill those people? Or Which cereal mascot f***s the most? Or who should play the next Batman? And for the record, the answers are, absolutely, it’s not even close [Tony the tiger], and Natasha Lyonne.”

The comedian joked the Russian Doll star would make a great casting choice whenever they cast the next Batman.

Robert Pattinson currently portrays the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves’s The Batman, with the actor reprising his role in The Batman Part II, which is set to be released on October 3, 2025.

Gunn and Safran announced they would create a new Batman-centered film based on The Brave and the Bold as the duo reimagines the DC Universe. The Brave and the Bold features Batman and his son, Damien Wayne, as Robin. Gunn teased the main story of the comic back in January 2023 saying Robin is an “Assassin, murderer who Batman takes on, who is Batman’s actual son that he doesn’t know exists for the first 8-10 years of his life….it’s a strange father and son story about the two of them and based on Grant Morrison’s run of the Batman.”

In a recent social media post, Gunn said there were no scripts for The Brave and the Bold yet and no casting had been started yet.
