Robert Pattinson is Batman. The British actor’s engagement, who is still branded as a “Twilight” baby, wasn’t met with great enthusiasm across much of the internet, but these reactions are now almost part of the biggest superhero auditions (just think of the excitement surrounding Heath Ledger or Ben Affleck). Either way, all the complaints are to no avail, because Pattinson’s engagement has now also been confirmed by “The Batman” director Matt Reeves:
No connection to the DCEU
Indeed Pattinson will not be a younger version of the Ben affleck played Batman from “Batman V Superman” and “Justice League”as many DCEU fans had long expected. This is confirmed by the renowned industry magazine, among others Deadline. DC Insider Information Mark Hughes of Forbes goes even further and claims that “The Batman” is planned as the beginning of a new DC cinematic universe that will gradually replace the previous DCEU in the coming years.

The concrete information about the plot of “The Batman” is not yet available and even the little information that has been leaked so far should not be set in stone, because Reeves is apparently still fine-tuning the script.

Should there is no origin story to tell but the story of Bruce Wayne who is on his way to becoming a brilliant detective, but still looking for the necessary support.
So even though this Batman will be pretty inexperienced, he will still be up against various bad guys. the Hollywood reporter reported on it for a long time in “The Batman” everything “Villain Gallery“It would be, im Heat vision– Newsletter THR was the last of a “half a dozen villains” speech.
The penguin and Catwoman will surely be among that dirty half dozen, and rumors about Riddler’s performance persist. – Among other things, because Matt Reeves shared an image on Twitter in September 2018 showing famous costumes of exactly these three characters:

Other sources (including Hollywood reporter, Collider and the aforementioned Mark Hughes) currently assume that Matt Reeves will be the camera not until spring 2020 spear. Given the fact that Pattinson is still in front of the camera for Christopher Nolan’s “Tenet” and Reeves is still working on the script for “The Batman,” we also assume that filming won’t begin until 2020.
The start date
Either way, it shouldn’t be a problem, “The Batman” for him. US Release Date Already Announced June 25, 2021 get prepared. For movies of this size, it usually takes about a year between filming start and theatrical release, so Matt Reeves is on time. Although Warner has just announced a full series of new film releases for Germany (including “Birds Of Prey”), Unfortunately, a German start date for “The Batman” has yet to be set.
