Shortly after it was announced yesterday that Robert Pattinson is in final talks to play the Dark Knight himself, it seems as if story details are starting to leak. Collider reported there will be at least six villains in The Batman two of which being Catwoman and Penguin.
Penguin has been rumored for this movie for a long time. Many fans want to see Josh Gad take on the role that he has been teasing for so long. As for Catwoman, it will be interesting to see what direction they go in and with Robert Pattinson staring I’m sure there will be some flirtation between the two. While no names have been mentioned for Catwoman it is likely they will go with someone around the same age as Pattinson.
Another interesting detail that was revealed was that there will be at least SIX main villains. This is very exciting for Batman fans because this means we will finally get to see Batman take on a larger portion of his amazing rogues gallery. In the past, he has just taken on just one or two, however Reeves is already proving he has both the fans and comics in mind.
As for Pattinson’s casting, it has been proven to be quite controversial. However, it is important to remember that all actors have their beginnings and it is important to give them a chance. We shouldn’t dismiss them just because of their previous work. He also stars in Christopher Nolan’s upcoming movie so I wouldn’t be surprised if a special someone recommended him for the role.
The Batman stars Robert Pattison and is directed by Matt Reeves. The movie is expected to start shooting late 2019 or early 2020 with a July 2021 release date. So what do you think of this news?
