Warner Brothers/DC Batman Reboot to feature Robert Pattison


From the trailer shown at the DC FanDome this weekend, it looks like this may well be the darkest and most violent Batman character, yet. 

Robert Pattison: What to expect

According to filmaker Matt Reeves, Pattison’s Batman is going to be more personal than previous incarnations of the caped crusader. He told the Hollywood Reporter that “It’s very much a point of view-driven, noir Batman tale. It’s told very squarely on his shoulders, and I hope it’s going to be a story that will be thrilling but also emotional.” 

No one has ever accused Bruce Wayne/Batman of being reasonable, or predictable. Keep in mind, he dresses in a Bat costume and attacks evil-doers almost every night.  Robert Pattinson might just be the angriest bat to fly onto the screen.

Robert Pattinson even acknowledges the anger issues in a FanDome interview. He pointed out that being Batman is consuming Bruce’s life. And he’s compulsive.

“He wants to inflict his kind of justice,” said Pattinson. “He’s kind of compelled to do it. There is no other option.”
