Robert Pattinson will make a great Batman

While nothing is finalized yet, all signs point to Robert Pattinson donning the cape and cowl to become the next Batman. Pattinson would play the Caped Crusader in Matt Reeves‘s The Batman, a fresh start to the character not connected to Ben Affleck‘s most recent incarnation. This casting is excellent, and many seem to agree. But there’s already some backlash. This backlash appears to be coming from fans who only know Pattinson in regards to his role as sparkly vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight franchise.

However, Twilight ended many years ago, and since then, Pattinson has been delivering captivating performances in challenging films.

The Batman script

After months of silence, it seems like the bat’s out of the bag when it comes to director Matt Reeves‘ highly-anticipated superhero movie The Batman. Earlier this week, Reeves confirmed that his take on the Caped Crusader would be a noir-style story that focuses on Batman being the world’s greatest detective – a quality apparent to his character in the comics but one the movies have rarely touched.

That almost certainly won’t be the length of the final cut, but you can read the latest update about The Batman below.

And outside of the comic book realm, The Shining sequel Doctor Sleep has been moved up to release in the fall of 2019 instead of early 2020. Read More »
