Robert Pattinson is The Batman
Updated: May 28, 2019
We have a new Batman. Robert Pattinson has been cast in the role in Matt Reeves’ upcoming film, The Batman.
My first thought when I heard this was “Really? The sparkling vampire is Batman?” And from feedback I’ve gotten, a lot of you had the same reaction.
Am I skeptical about the casting? I sure am. But a lot of people were skeptical about Ben Affleck when he was first cast, and I consider him one of the best to don the cowl.
Admittedly, beyond Twilight, I’m not too familiar with Pattinson’s work. And Twilight alone is not the best frame of reference.
The jury is very much out on this, but we’ll have to trust Matt Reeves.
