Every year, Hollywood goes crazy for Comic-Con. The event isn’t due for another few weeks but studios are already making predictions about who will be showing up and who will be playing. One of the most popular characters to be featured at Comic-Con will be Robert Pattinson’s character, the Batman. Since the beginning of the year, there have been rumours flying around that Robert Pattinson could be playing Batman in a new movie. And now, it seems these rumours may be true.
Robert Pattinson Joins The Cast Of Batman V. SUPERMAN
While we don’t know the plot of the film yet, we do know that it will be directed by Danny Boyle and written by Jonathon Loves. One of the main reasons for the upcoming film’s existence is that the original Batman v Superman was one of the most polarizing films ever made. Even though it was panned by many critics, it became a huge commercial success. And now, seven years later, Batman and his sidekick are going to be taking on Superman once more. So, it would appear that the pop culture world is due for another classic superhero battle.
Before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s remember that this is just a rumour at this point. As we’ve established, Comic-Con is still a few weeks away so until then, we must treat this as pure speculation. However, with E3 right around the corner, the media circus will be in full swing and this could easily become the next hottest topic. When that happens, we will certainly be hearing more about this potential Batman film. Until then, let’s feast our eyes on some lovely stills from the new Sherlock Holmes adaptation.
New Stills From Sherlock Holmes
Speaking of adaptations, the new Sherlock Holmes film looks absolutely phenomenal. Not only does it look like it was adapted from one of the most famous and respected detective stories of all time, it also looks like it was adapted by the Wachowskis. The visual novel that the movie is based on was famously difficult to adapt and required a new writing team to do it justice. The result is something spectacular.
The new Sherlock Holmes film will be arriving in UK cinemas on November 4th and will be available to buy or rent on Netflix Instant. And no, we’re not kidding when we say that this is one of the most anticipated films of the year. Especially since many people believe that Sherlock Holmes is one of the greatest characters ever written. And if you’re among these people, then it’s absolutely imperative that you see the new Sherlock Holmes film. Even if it is just for an adaptation credit.
Robert Pattinson In Talks To Star In Batman V. SUPERMAN
While we’re on the topic of Sherlock Holmes, we couldn’t talk about upcoming movies without mentioning the phenomenal range of detective stories that he originated. One of the most famous stories is ‘The Strangled’ and it was originally written for the short-lived Victorian era magazine, The Strand. In it, Sherlock Holmes plays an interesting role as he investigates a man who is murdered during one of his concerts. The suspect is a famous violinist who was having an affair with the dead man’s wife. While we don’t know what will be the actual plot of the new Batman v Superman movie, it seems that the Caped Crusader will be taking on the role of Superman in this movie. And while we don’t know who will be playing Batman yet, reports suggest that he could be joined by a mystery man. This mystery man is said to be a talented actor whose face is hidden behind a mask.
If these reports are true, then it would appear that Warner Bros. have cast their first-ever blind actor in one of the most iconic roles of all time. The fact that they didn’t even need to see him is a testament to how good he’ll be playing Batman. This could be one of the greatest feats of casting ever achieved. And it’s certainly a masterstroke if it comes to portraying the Caped Crusader. One of the greatest performances of the year, if not the greatest.
Warner Bros. Confirms They’re Make Me Feel Like A Man Too
In other news, Warner Bros. have confirmed that they’re making a new installment in the ‘Me Myself And I’ franchise. Titled simply, Make Me Feel Like A Man, this movie will be written and directed by Greg Berlanti. While it’s not known who will be playing the titular character, it was previously reported that he’d be joined by the likes of Jeremy Piven and Peter Dinklage. The studio announced the film at this year’s Comic-Con.
Make Me Feel Like A Man will be arriving in UK cinemas on March 9th 2021. We can’t wait to see how Berlanti plans to update the “Me Myself And I” formula in order to make a funny and fresh new installment in the franchise. The main reason why we’re hyped about this movie is that the original ‘Me Myself And I’ was one of the first major critical and commercial successes of 2020. It’s also a very personal project for Berlanti, who openly discussed his struggle with depression in the first season of the Disney sitcom.
Netflix is also expanding its animation department as they’re now in the process of recruiting some of Pixar’s top talent. This is evidenced by the fact that they’ve just signed on Scott Thomas, the co-director of Brave and Toy Story 4, to be their new VP of Animation.
The Rumours Are True: Robert Pattinson On Batman
We were so engrossed in all the speculation about Robert Pattinson playing Batman that we didn’t even notice that he’d started tweeting about the upcoming Batman v Superman movie. The rumour mill started churning and soon, everyone was talking about it. It seems that Pattinson has been cast in the role of Batman after all. It’s still very early days, however, and we shouldn’t get too carried away just yet. It’s also not yet clear whether or not Pattinson will be using his actual voice in the upcoming movie. As we’ve established, he’s voiced numerous characters in film and television so far and has a broad vocal range. Plus, he can sing. It wouldn’t be the first time that he’s impersonated a famous voice. He did a magnificent job adapting the singing voice of Justin Bieber in the new movie adaptation of Les Miserables.
If you’ve been following our news site for long, then you’ll know that we like to play it safe when it comes to rumours. We don’t want to get hyped up about something and then find out that it wasn’t true. Still, it’s always refreshing to see a celebrity as famous as Robert Pattinson join the iconic Batman and it will be very cool to see him bring the Dark Knight to life on the big screen. It also seems like a great opportunity for Warner Bros. to introduce a whole new audience to one of the greatest comic book characters of all time.
