The people of Gotham City don’t need to fear anymore because there’s a new Batman to save the day.
That’s right, we’re getting a new Batman and it’s none other than our favorite vampire Robert Pattinson a.k.a. Edward Cullen.
Warner Bros. has closed a deal for the “Twilight” actor to play the Caped Crusader in “The Batman.”
Matt Reeves’ superhero saga hits theaters on June 25, 2021. And Pattinson was previously in dealings for the part. The studio confirmed on Friday that he had signed an arrangement.
Pre-production on the Warner Bros.- DC Comics pic is relied upon to begin this mid-year. However, no official start date has been set for the filming of “The Batman.”
Reeves, the movie producer behind the last two “Planet of the Apes” spin-offs, expected “Batman” directing obligations from Ben Affleck in January 2017. Reeves will produce “The Batman” with his “Planet of the Apes” associate Dylan Clark.
Affleck featured as Batman in two titles directed by Zack Snyder: 2016’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and 2017’s “Justice League.” Both movies received mixed reviews. And in its endeavors to rival Marvel Studios in the superhero realm, was a disappointment for Warner Bros.
Pattinson turned into a star following the breakout accomplishment of the five-film “Twilight” franchise, in which he depicted the vampire Edward Cullen opposite to Kristen Stewart’s Bella Swan.
Pattinson will star alongside John David Washington in Christopher Nolan’s most recent film, “Principle,” set to open July 17, 2020. He headlines “The Lighthouse,” which debuted at the Cannes Film Festival, and showed up in Claire Denis’ “High Life,” “The King” for Netflix and “Hanging tight for the Barbarians.”
