We’re starting to hear a lot of info come out about DC Comics’ plan for the next Batman feature film. Currently being developed under the title “The Batman” with director Matt Reeves helming the project, we’ve been hearing a lot about the casting in the past few days. So far, we know the list will include Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, and Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon. Of course, the Robert Pattinson will be playing Batman as we’ve known for a while now.
Pattinson sat down to speak with the New York Times while promoting his latest film, “The Lighthouse”, about what kind of Batman we’ll be in store for. He also revealed his take on how Batman is viewed as a hero, which he literally says he is not.
“I love the director, Matt Reeves, and it’s a dope character. His morality is a little bit off. He’s not the golden boy, unlike almost every other comic-book character. There is a simplicity to his worldview, but where it sits is strange, which allows you to have more scope with the character.”
This shift towards questioning the morality of the character may have spawned from the development of “Joker” being a heavier character focus, considering “Joker” had been in the works since as early as 2017’s “Wonder Woman.” Given the recent success of “Joker,” there’s a likely chance “The Batman” will shift towards keeping the film dark and morally questioning.
“The Batman” is still in production but currently has a screening date set for June 25, 2021.
