Twilight star Robert Pattinson is reported to be the first choice for Matt Reeves’ upcoming film, The Batman.
It’s not done yet, but Pattinson is the top choice and it’s expected to close shortly. Nicholas Hoult is still in the mix.
Reeves has been working on the script for The Batman and aiming to release the film on June 25, 2021 release date.
It’s very much a point of view-driven, noir Batman tale. It’s told very squarely on his shoulders, and I hope it’s going to be a story that will be thrilling but also emotional. It’s more Batman in his detective mode than we’ve seen in the films. The comics have a history of that. He’s supposed to be the world’s greatest detective, and that’s not necessarily been a part of what the movies have been. I’d love this to be one where when we go on that journey of tracking down the criminals and trying to solve a crime, it’s going to allow his character to have an arc so that he can go through a transformation.
