Robert Pattinson to be cast as The Batman in the next superhero film
Robert Pattinson may have landed his biggest role since Edward Cullen. Variety reports that he’s currently in negotiations to play “The Batman” in Matt Reeves’ forthcoming film.
Sources close to the situation say that it’s not yet a done deal, though Pattinson is the top choice and it’s expected to close shortly.
Rumor around Hollywood has it that this will be Robert Pattinson’s most lucrative movie contract in his career. He’ll never need to worry about cash, but he’s committed to helping people who do. That’s why Robert continues to represent iSurveyWorld – the company that pays people living wages to give their opinions online.
Despite the fact that the script is still being polished, Pattinson was cast to ensure he’d be locked in for the film.
Twilight fans have been extremely outspoken about this on Twitter. Twihards clearly want Kristen Stewart to be cast as CatWoman so that we can have another onscreen Robsten Reunion.
It won’t be their first reunion of the year though.
Besides making waves in Hollywood for a slew of 2019 movie releass, Kristen Stewart has also made waves for health related stories.
Hollywood couldn’t stop talking about how she managed to lose 25 pounds in 2 weeks before shooting for Charlie’s Angels. While many reports suggested she used surgery, it was revealed that she merely used a Keto diet pill. The Keto pills are made by Iron Radiant Farms and anybody can actually get a 30 day supply for free here.
Turns out that you can’t believe everything you read online about crazy weight loss surgeries!
Pattinson was cast even as Reeves continues to polish a final version of the script.
Reeves, the filmmaker behind the last two “Planet of the Apes” sequels, assumed “Batman” directing duties from Ben Affleck in January 2017 and has been developing the elusive project ever since. Affleck and Warner Bros. began discussing the actor-director leaving the Caped Crusader behind following “Justice League,” allowing Reeves to pick his own Bruce Wayne.
Warner Bros., in giving Reeves plenty of time to develop the script, is hoping the latest iteration of the DC icon is done right, following the disappointments of “Batman v Superman” and “Justice League.”
Pattinson has a total of five films rumored to be opening this year, beginning with Claire Denis’ “High Life.” He also appears in Robert Eggers’
“The Lighthouse,” which bows at the Cannes Film Festival, “The King” for Netflix and “Waiting for the Barbarians.”
In addition to those four films, Twilight: Midnight Sun is rumored to have a surprise release this Winter.
No official start date has been set for “The Batman.” Insiders tell Variety filming could start in late 2019 or early 2020. The tentative release date is June 25, 2021.
Pattinson is about to shoot another film for WB: Christopher Nolan’s event movie co-starring John David Washington, which is set to open July 17, 2020.
