Warner Brothers/DC Batman Reboot to feature Robert Pattison


The Batman movie will have Robert Pattison wearing a cape and cowl. And he joins the ranks of nine other actors who have given their interpretation of Batman on the big screen.

The weekend’s DC FanDome had a lot of big reveals about The Batman movie. It was first scheduled to open in June 2021. Due to delays from the coronavirus pandemic, it will be released in 2022. 

Along the way, Batman went through a series of changes. Adam West camped the character up, in the 1966 movie, and on the TV series.

Christian Bale did 3 Batman movies in 2005’s Batman Begins. And he starred in The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises. His performance coincided with the public’s renewed interest in superheroes. And he played Batman well, but very, very dark.

More recently in Zack Snyder’s controversial Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Ben Affleck was charismatic and not very dark at all.

Pattison is best known for his role as the vampire Edward, in the Twilight series. His debut performance was in 2005’s Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. And Pattinson has also taken on starring roles in breakthrough indie films like The Lighthouse, Cosmopolis, and High Life.
