First Look on Robert Pattinson as Batman!
In the upcoming Matt Reeves film ‘The Batman’, Robert Pattinson has officially replaced Ben Affleck as the DC comic superhero. While previously some fans were having difficulty imagining him in a cape, the new image might offer some help. We finally have a look into Pattinson as Batman, and the audience seems to have divided opinions. But will Pattinson be able to live up to the Batman that Ben Affleck and Christian Bale created for us? Or will it be another let down from the DC Comic World?
Will Robert Pattinson Live Up To The Batman Ben Affleck Created?
When Robert Pattinson was cast as Batman in the upcoming film, many fans were not delighted. In fact, they even signed petitions demanding a recasting with a better choice. But then, Matt Reeves himself confirmed that Pattinson was going to take up the role as the young Caped Crusader. However, the first choice for this role was Ben Affleck still. Affleck, who was also supposed to fill in as director for this movie backed out of the directorial spot back in January 2017. At that time, DC Comics got in Matt Reeves to direct The Batman. But in January 2019, Affleck refused to play Batman as well leaving the superhero place up for grabs. Eventually, the team for the movie landed on Robert Pattinson. After being signed up, the actor even earned the title of ‘Battinson’.
There has been considerable debate on whether or not Robert Pattinson will do justice to the superhero that Ben Affleck and Christian Bale so perfectly created. But now that his first look as the Batman is out with an extraordinary image, there might be a change of heart. The image features Pattinson wearing the cape and cowl in front of the Batmobile with a slimmer build in a Rebirth styled Batsuit.
Many plot details about the upcoming Batman film have not been released. The plot and story in still in the wraps, but it will follow the DC superhero during his formative years as Gotham City’s protector. As for the Dark Knight’s detective skills, the Matt Reeves film will make more use of it than any others.
Let’s wait and see how Robert Pattinson does as the Batman!
