dave bautista bane

Dave Bautista is not content with playing just one beloved comic book character – the Guardians of the Galaxy star wants to add supervillain to his resume. Bautista revealed that he tried to land the part of Bane in Matt Reeves‘ The Batman starring Robert Pattinson, but despite his best efforts, he could not. Which may be for the best since the film is already jam-packed with some of Batman’s most famous rogues, including Catwoman, the Penguin, the Riddler, and Carmine Falcone.

Batman‘s rogues’ gallery is one of the most famous in comic book history, featuring such a wide variety of colorful and unique villains that the Caped Crusader is often in danger of being overshadowed. But while the comics can pack each frame with rogues and still keep Batman as the star, movies are often in danger of becoming unwieldy with more than three villains.

Which is why people are eying Matt Reeves‘ The Batman with such interest: the superhero movie starring Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader is set to feature a smorgasbord of famous Batman villains, including Catwoman, the Riddler, Penguin, Carmine Falcone, and possibly more. How could Reeves possibly juggle so many big personalities in one film? Colin Farrell, who plays the devious businessman the Penguin, reveals that it may not be too difficult in regards to his character, who won’t have a major role in the film.

The world is attempting a tricky and terrifying balance at the moment: how do you flatten the curve of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic while also ensuring every economy on the planet doesn’t flatten alongside it? For the United Kingdom, that means sending people back to work, but with strenuous new guidelines in place. And yes, that includes film and TV productions, which means The Batman, The Witcher, The Little Mermaid and other major shoots may resume sooner than we thought.

the batman production

There are a few guarantees in Hollywood: movie stars will rise and fall, everything will get a reboot or sequel, and there will always be a Batman — usually played by the latest handsome, brooding actor du jour. When the cape and cowl has been inhabited so many times, how can any actor hope to make an impression, especially when past iterations played by Michael Keaton and Christian Bale are so beloved? That’s something that Robert Pattinson had to wrestle with when boarding The Batman as the newest Caped Crusader.

Pattinson was a bit of an unexpected choice, considering the British actor seemed deathly allergic to fame and blockbusters in the aftermath of the young-adult vampire series that put him on the map, choosing instead to forge his post-Twilight career path with a series of increasingly weird arthouse flicks. But that particular challenge of putting his own spin on a character that’s been around for 80-plus years is exactly what drew Pattinson to the role, the actor revealed.
