Don’t be shocked, but Robert Pattinson is officially the new Batman.
It’s official, Warner Bros. has closed a deal for the “Twilight” actor to play the Caped Crusader in “The Batman.” Read on to get more on Robert Pattinson Officially ‘The Batman’…
CelebNMovies247.com reports that Matt Reeves’ superhero tentpole hits theaters on June 25, 2021, now that the film has it’s star for the lead role as ‘The Batman.’
Variety first reported on May 16 that Robert Pattinson was in negotiations for the part as Bruce Wayne aka The Batman, and now it’s that Robert Pattinson is ‘The Batman.’
The studio confirmed on Friday that Robert Pattinson had signed a deal.
Pre-production on the Warner Bros.-DC Comics pic is expected to start this summer. No official start date has been set for filming “The Batman.”
Reeves, the filmmaker behind the last two “Planet of the Apes” sequels, assumed “Batman” directing duties from Ben Affleck in January 2017. Reeves will produce “The Batman” with his “Planet of the Apes” collaborator Dylan Clark.
Affleck starred as Batman in two titles directed by Zack Snyder: 2016’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and 2017’s “Justice League.” Both films received mixed reviews and were a disappointment for Warner Bros. in its efforts to compete with Marvel Studios in the superhero realm.
We haven’t seen Pattinson in major movies like Twilight since the franchise ended.
However, he has been in a bunch of limited release films and has received plenty of praise for his roles.
Robert Pattinson won the hearts of many teenage girls as vampire Edward Cullen in Twilight, but now that he will be portraying Batman in the upcoming solo film, we hope he brings it.
As long as we don’t get that meek Edward Cullen acting when he portrays the Batman, then we are all good.
Pattinson is starring with John David Washington in Christopher Nolan’s latest film, “Tenet,” set to open July 17, 2020. in addition, he toplines “The Lighthouse,” which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, and appeared in Claire Denis’ “High Life,” “The King” for Netflix and “Waiting for the Barbarians.”
He is repped by WME, the Curtis Brown Group, and 3 Arts Entertainment.
