According the Variety Robert Pattinson is officially the new Batman.
Warner Bros. has confirmed that a deal has been signed for the Twilight actor to play Batman in the upcoming film that will hit theaters on June 25, 2021.
Deadline has said that the new Matt Reeves’ trilogy will have no connection to the previous Ben Affleck Batman.
This film will in no way carry on the work that Ben Affleck did as the older Batman in Batman Vs. Superman and Justice League.
It seems that they are going to continue with more stand alone superhero movies going forward with the DC properties. Aquaman, Wonder Woman and Shazam! have all performed well.
I’m just not sure where this one is going to fall and who can cross over into it. Although I didn’t mind the one suggestion, on social media, about Batman Beyond with Bruce Wayne played by Michael Keaton and Terry played by Robert Pattinson. I doubt that’s where they would go, but I would have liked to have seen something like that.
The new film will be called The Batman and will be produced by Reeves and his Planet of the Apes collaborator Dylan Clark. Fans can expect it in theaters 2021.
