Robert Pattinson is the new Batman

At the end of May, Warner Bros. officially closed the deal with actor Robert Pattinson to play Batman/Bruce Wayne in Matt Reeves’ “The Batman” film.

Yes, its the same Robert Pattinson who played “that vampire” in the Twilight movies. Each time a new actor has been cast as Batman, there is always a group of people who go “He’s not Batman” dating all the way back to when Michael Keaton was announced as Batman in Tim Burton’s 1989 “Batman”. I remember when Christian Bale was cast and a bunch of people lost it. But not as much as people lost it when Heath Ledger was cast as The Joker in Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight” and he ended up being the best version of the character to appear on screen to-date. I think its important to reserve any judgement on Robert as Batman until we see him in character in Matt Reeves’ movie. There’s a reason he was cast. And Matt has a specific vision for Batman he’s going for. Let’s wait to see it come to life first before judging.

In the meantime, check out this blog post I made that re-caps most of what we know about Matt Reeves’ “The Batman”.
