Apparently Pattison isn't official yet.  He and Nicholas Hoult are on the shortlist.

 

LOL, I bet Pattison's agent or publicist floated the story that he was officially cast.

Update: A Deadline report suggests that Pattinson has not yet officially been cast in The Batman, but is at the top of the shortlist to play the Caped Crusader, alongside Nicholas Hoult, who recently starred in Tolkien. The outlet reports that Reeves will announce his official casting soon.

I don't think so. It's not like Pattinson is trying to get big blockbuster projects. Pattinson is an indie character actor now. He is not at all a mainstream actor and is not looking to become one. So I doubt his publicist would spread such rumors about him. I think it just leaked in the press.

Years ago a girl told me I looked like him when I woke up.

 

A guy working at the airport looked at my passport and said the same thing. Probably because of the paleness :lol:

I wish they'd go back to a more realistic and relatable build like Michael Keaton, Adam West etc. Batman shouldn't look like he spends all day working out.

 

Working out all day is the reality of today. If everyone looks buffed, Batman can't stay behind. It wouldn't be credible.

I hope Pattinson is confirmed. He's a wonderful Indie actor. He has given some great performances over the years. My favourite film of his is 'How To Be.' Such a funny and charming film and performance. I think he would be brilliant as Batman.

 

With Reeves as writer/director, and Pattinson as Batman; I'd love Serkis as a villain and Giacchino as Composer, considering Giacchino has done everything for Reeves. His gothic stuff from Cloverfield and Let Me In for Reeves, and also for Fallen Kingdom shows his potential for Batman.

 

This screams Batman to me.

 

 

And this feels like the tragic nature of Bruce Wayne.

 

Some elements from this even work for Batman

Didn't realize Pattinson is already 33 years old. Still, wouldn't that make him the youngest Batman ever?

 

Nope.  Bale was born in 1974 so he was 30 when they filmed Batman Begins in 2004

About Pattinson being cast... I was kinda hostile when I heard the initial rumors about him, but Matt Reeves had to have seen something in him when he did the screen test. And he's co-starring in Christopher Nolan's next movie, so he's not an outlier. Plus the guy has been doing numerous niche indie films during and after he did the Twilight series. His performances in Good Time, The Rover, and High Life were actually good.

 

And the backlash against his casting is EXACTLY the same that Michael Keaton, Heath Ledger, Gal Gadot, and Ben Affleck got when they were first cast. So I'm actually looking forward to seeing the first trailer.

Pattinson is a tall and skinny guy, they're going to put him on a diet and exercise regime.

 

He doesn't need to be super buff, but at least toned and look like he can take on several bad guys at once.

Looking forward to a Giacchino Batman score! Not sure why people are pissed about Pattinson's potential casting - I guess they see Twilight and think that's all he is?

I just want Warner Bros / DC to make good superhero movies. 

 

 

 

They are, that's why they got Patty Jenkins, David F. Sandberg and Matt Reeves now.
