Looks like Robert Pattinson will be The Batman for a new trilogy


He had been rumoured for the role and now Warner Bros. has officially confirmed that Robert Pattinson is the top pick for the new Batman. This will be for a new trilogy of films that Matt Reeves will direct later this year.

Deadline had the news that the decision was down to Pattinson and Nicholas Hoult (Tolkien, X-Men: First Class). The studio wanted to see them both on tape. Those meetings happened yesterday and the decision was made. Pattinson was the favourite and negotiations will get underway any moment.

I know some people give Pattinson a lot of stick, but since the Twilight movies he has picked some great roles and has shown that he is a very capable actor. I am very intrigued to see what he will do in the role of Batman, but even more curious about his take on Bruce Wayne. I had always felt that Warner Bros. had painted themselves into a corner going with an older Batman.

Still not sure whether it was wise for Warner Bros. to announce it as part of a new trilogy. I would just like to see a well crafted Batman movie, preferably one that focuses on the fact he is the world’s greatest detective. I also hope they do keep it within the DC cinematic universe in some way and not give it the gritty realism of the Christopher Nolan Batman films. I’d still like it to be serious, but would love to see some of the comic book elements come into play.

How do you feel about Pattinson in the role and what would you like to see in the film.
