Now that it was made official that Robert Pattinson will be the latest actor to tackle the cape and cowl of the Caped Crusader, what is being revealed about The Batman?
Details have emerged about what to expect about the announcement of “Pattman” being cast as Bruce Wayne. First, director Matt Reeves is planning a trilogy of films that will have Pattman take on members of the Rogues’ Gallery.
The film is said to have a “film noir” feel and focus on Batman’s earlier days as a “detective” rather than the Dark Knight or Caped Crusader. Perhaps, this is being inspired by the very early days of Batman, in which he used more detective-like skills upon his debut in 1939 (above).
So, who will be the first villains to take on The Batman? Rumors are persisting that the film’s villains will be The Penguin and Catwoman with casting going underway for those two pivotal roles. There will be some time before an announcement because the film is scheduled to begin shooting in the winter of 2020.
The Batman is set to have a release date of June 25, 2021 from Warner Bros. and DC Comics.
