The rumors have been swirling for weeks – will Robert Pattinson be the next Batman? The answer is yes! The British actor, best known for his starring roles in the Twilight movie series, has officially been cast to play Bruce Wayne in the upcoming film The Batman.
The film, which is set to be released in June 2021, will be the first standalone Batman movie since Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight trilogy. It will be directed by Matt Reeves, who was also behind the Cloverfield movie series and the Planet of the Apes trilogy. According to Reeves, this film will be a “definitive” take on the Batman character.
The Role of Batman
The Batman is set to pick up after the events of Batman v Superman. This time around, we’ll be seeing a much older Bruce Wayne, who is no longer the fresh-faced crime fighter we saw in earlier films. The character has been hardened by the events of his life and his mission to protect Gotham City. He is out for justice and will stop at nothing to make sure that justice prevails.
Pattinson is expected to bring a unique take on the Batman character. He is known for playing characters who are complex and brooding, as well as those who have shades of darkness. This fits perfectly with the character of Bruce Wayne and what we can expect to see in the upcoming film.
Alongside Robert Pattinson, the movie will feature an impressive star-studded cast. Zoe Kravitz has been cast as Catwoman and Paul Dano as the Riddler. Additionally, Colin Farrell will play the Penguin, and Andy Serkis will play Alfred Pennyworth. The cast also includes Jeffrey Wright, John Turturro, and Peter Sarsgaard.
The Batman will focus on a young Bruce Wayne as he learns to become the protector of Gotham City. The film will explore the character’s relationship with his allies, as well as his struggles with the criminal underworld of Gotham. He’ll have to face off against the Riddler, Penguin, and Catwoman, as well as a host of other villains.
Release Date and More
The Batman is set to be released in June 2021, with filming beginning this coming summer. The movie is expected to be one of the biggest superhero films ever made and has fans excited to see what Robert Pattinson can bring to the character of Bruce Wayne.
