If you’re one of the many people who’ve been excitedly awaiting the arrival of the new Batman movie, you might be wondering how many times Robert Pattinson will play the role. According to IMDb, the British actor is scheduled to appear in four more Batman films after Suicide Squad. If these upcoming movies are any indication, we can expect to see a lot more of Pattinson as the Dark Knight.
More Than Meets The Eye
While we’re on the topic of IMDb, it’s important to note that the database is often wrong. However, this time it seems to be pretty much on the mark. According to the database, Robert Pattinson will star in four more Batman films after Suicide Squad. The most recent entry lists Pattinson’s role as the iconic detective Sherlock Holmes in the upcoming movie The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. If this information is indeed correct, it would be a major departure from the usual vigilante roles he’s played in the past.
The four more films are listed as:
- The Return of Sherlock Holmes
- The Man from Uncyclopedia
- The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson
- Once Upon a Time in London
It should be noted that none of these films have been officially confirmed by DC or Warner Bros. Yet, they’ve all appeared pretty much where they’re supposed to, according to IMDb, which implies that someone there knows what they’re talking about.
The Most Recent Installment
If you’re wondering which one is the most recent Batman film starring Robert Pattinson, it’s fair to say that it’s 1917. This was the first Batman film produced since 1914, the year before the birth of actor Robert Pattinson. It was directed by Basil Rathbone and features an ensemble cast that includes:
- Betty Boyd
- Dr. Kirk
- George Sanders
- Helen Chandler
The year is 1917. World War I is raging across Europe and the United Kingdom. Amidst this chaos, a master criminal named Franz Leopold Bruselle, known as the “Hand of Franz,” plots to steal an armored truck holding a fortune in diamonds. Holmes and his sidekick, the dog, track Bruselle down and discover his hidden stronghold on a crumbling island in the English Channel. It’s here that they discover the genius of Franz Leopold Bruselle, who devised a formula for creating a synthetic diamond that is virtually impossible to break down. Once they decipher the formula, a furious Holmes and his loyal hound gun down Bruselle and recover the diamonds.
Batman’s Biggest Accomplishment
While we’re on the topic of the Batman movies, it’s important to point out that the hero has accomplished a lot over the years. Aside from creating his own superhero universe (complete with its own language and cultural differences), the Caped Crusader has solved many puzzles and defeated a variety of foes. Here’s a short list of Batman’s biggest accomplishments:
- Transformed criminal justice system
- Decreased crime rate

These are just a few of Batman’s greatest achievements. The man behind the mask has made quite a name for himself over the years and it’s not hard to understand why. While the Batman films might not be for everyone, there’s no question that Robert Pattinson has been very fortunate to play such a prominent role in an iconic franchise.
