Since May 2019, there have been rumors that Pattison will be the next Batman. Warner Bros. finally confirmed the news to CNN on Friday morning, following much speculation.
Furthermore, for a brief period of time, the Twilight actress was thought to be the front runner for the cloak and cowl. Thankfully, Matt Reeves gave him a part in his next film The Batman.
After a few days, word got out, and DC began tweeting about the newly released Batman. Everyone is anticipating the events that will unfold in Gotham City.
After Christian Bale, who was 31 when Batman premiered in 2005, the former Twilight hunk, 33, is the second youngest actor to play Batman on the big screen.
Ben Affleck previously portrayed the primary role of Cape Crusader in Batman v Superman, Suicide Squad, and Justice League. Ben informs that he will not reprise his role as Cape Crusader in the 2012 film. According to insiders, Ben has had some difficulties with Batman’s direction.
He even tweeted about his decision to leave the movie on January 30, 2019. He stated, “Excited for #TheBatman in Summer 2021 and to see @MattReevesLA vision come to life.”
Matt Reeves told Comic Book before the date and actors were announced that The Batman will return to Gotham City’s early days to put an end to the violence. Furthermore, Matt indicated that the comic book narrative Batman impacted the film: Year One, but that it would not be a direct adaptation of the storyline.
On June 3, DCBatman tweeted a photo of Batman to commemorate the character’s 80th birthday. “80 years of mystery,” stated the tweet from DCBatman. “There have been 80 years of activity. Batman has been around for 80 years.”
