Robert Pattinson Is Officially The Batman

Today it was confirmed that Warner Bros. has approved 33-year-old English actor Robert Pattinson to play the title character/Bruce Wayne in the upcoming film, The Batman which will be the first of a planned trilogy.

The film will feature a younger Batman, a major reason behind former Batman star Ben Affleck vacating the role, and will have a film noir tone focusing more on the character’s detective abilities.

Since his breakout role in the Twilight films, Pattinson has largely stayed away from blockbuster films. His credits include Maps to the Stars, Queen of the Desert, Life, The Lost City of Z and Good Time. More recently, Pattinson starred in High Life, a sci-fi/horror film that was released earlier this year.

The Batman will be written and directed by Matt Reeves (Cloverfield, Planet of The Apes franchise), produced by Dylan Clark (War for the Planet of the Apes) and is currently slated to hit theaters on June 25, 2021.

Robert Pattinson Rumored To Play ‘The Batman’ For Matt Reeves’ Film 

According to Variety, Robert Pattinson is in negotiations to play “The Batman” in Matt Reeves’ forthcoming superhero film, which hits theaters June 25, 2021.

Pre-production on the Warner Bros.-DC Comics pic is expected to start this summer.

Reeves, the filmmaker behind the last two “Planet of the Apes” sequels, assumed “Batman” directing duties from Ben Affleck in January 2017 and has been developing the elusive project ever since. Affleck and Warner Bros. began discussing the actor-director leaving the Caped Crusader behind following “Justice League,” allowing Reeves to pick his own Bruce Wayne.

Reeves will produce “The Batman” with his “Planet of the Apes” collaborator Dylan Clark.

Matt Reeves’ The Batman Film Will Be Released On June 25, 2021 And Ben Affleck Will Not Return To The Role

After years of development hell, The Batman finally has a release date. Warner Bros. will release Matt Reeves’ Batman film on June 25, 2021. Ben Affleck will not don the cowl in this film and a search is on for the new Batman. Reeves’ script is said to focus on a younger Batman/Bruce Wayne.

Reeves shared some details about the movie while speaking to The Hollywood Reporter:

“It’s very much a point of view-driven, noir Batman tale,” said Reeves. “[The narrative is] very squarely on his shoulders, and I hope it’s going to be a story that will be thrilling but also emotional. It’s more Batman in his detective mode than we’ve seen in the films. The comics have a history of that. He’s supposed to be the world’s greatest detective, and that’s not necessarily been a part of what the movies have been. I’d love this to be one where when we go on that journey of tracking down the criminals and trying to solve a crime, it’s going to allow his character to have an arc so that he can go through a transformation.

At The Warner Bros panel at CinemaCon CEO Kevin Tsujihara shared that Ben Affleck is directing The Batman, the upcoming Batman solo film.

Tsujihara offered few details about the movie, mentioning it only as he ticked off the 10 DC Comics movies Warner plans to release over the next five years. He also touted the massive $166.1 million opening weekend for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice , the first movie to feature Affleck as the Caped Crusader.

“It set up a great foundation for our DC slate, which includes at least 10 movies through 2020,” Tsujihara said of the film. “I’m also excited to know that we will be working with Ben Affleck on a stand-alone Batman movie.”

It’s likely that The Batman is one of the unnamed DC films scheduled for 2018.
