What Are Your Thoughts on Robert Pattinson Possibly Being the Next Batman?
As you know, Warner Bros. and director Matt Reeves have yet to announce who will be the next Batman. It’s said that they are looking for a younger actor to take on the role, someone with a familiar face. Personally, I think that there’s a chance that an actor has already been cast in the role but the studio is not ready to announce it.
Fan artist Boss Logic claims that he has heard from an inside source that Robbert Pattinson (Twilight, Good Time) is being looked at for the role of Bruce Wayne, a.k.a. Batman. There’s no confirmation of this, but it’s something to think about and discuss.
Here’s the Tweet that was shared:
A choice that I never would have thought to try but been hearing some background chatter about Robert Pattinson being looked at, if the talks (source) are true then all of our predictions were wrong 👀😁 This might be your new Bruce #thebatman #batman pic.twitter.com/cNDKeRBzyb— BossLogic (@Bosslogic) February 3, 2019
Outside of the Twilight franchise, Robert Pattinson has actually proved himself to be a solid, talented actor. A lot of people might be rolling their eyes and shaking their heads at the idea of Pattinson talking on the role of the Dark Knight, but you know what? I actually think it could work.
Other actors that have been mentioned as being looked at include Jake Gyllenhaal, but with his involvement with Marvel’s Spider-Man: Far From Home, that might not happen. The studio was also looking at Kit Harington, Jack Huston, Jack O’Connell and Noah Centineo at one point.
Reeves has said that the film will be filled with a Rogues Gallery of characters. He also said that this will be a Batman noir story and that it will focus on Batman in detective mode. It’s not hard for me to imagine Pattinson in a noir style Batman detective film. If this casting ended up happening, you wouldn’t get any complaints from me.
But what do you all think? Do you think Pattinson could work? Do you hate the idea? Are there any other actors that you think that would be better for the role?
The Batman will be released in theaters on June 25th, 2021.
