Comic book movies are everywhere. And given how popular certain heroes like Batman are, there have been numerous film adaptations over the years. The next actor to wear the cape and cowl is Robert Pattinson, playing the title character in Matt Reeves’ The Batman. Robert Pattinson’s upcoming appearance in The Batman isn’t his first time portraying a hugely iconic figure. The name of the celebrated actor is still associated with his role as Edward in Twilight and his early appearance in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
Robert Pattison says” I mean, I’ve got a lot of thoughts. Well, it’s funny, like, doing – I’ve done so many movies where, you know, I play these sort of partially monstrous characters. And whenever I’ve been promoting them, you know, normally, no one cares what you say about it. And I’ve just noticed every single time I say one sentence about Batman, there’s this massive – I’m offending swathes of Batman fans. But, I mean, it’s kind of – I mean, the interesting thing about Batman itself is that you can basically – it’s been played in so many different ways. The comics cover so much ground. The movies cover so much ground. I mean, if you’re going on the kind of – if you’re trying to play a historically accurate Batman, I mean, you could literally play anything. So I guess it’s kind of what Matt Reeves is directing and kind of wants to go for”.
The Batman is set to arrive in theaters on March 4th, 2022.
