Your new Batman is - Robert Pattinson?

Recommended Posts

https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/robert-pattinson-frontrunner-play-batman-1211604

He starred as the male lead in the Twilight Saga alongside Kristen Stewart.  It makes sense as he should appeal to a younger audience and has credibility playing a dark brooding character.  Kristen Stewart herself could probably do Batgirl for this generation, but that's just my speculation.

Pattinson was heavily criticized for poor acting in the Twilight Saga films, but later he said even he hated those films.  Pattinson was given strongly positive reviews for his acting in Good Time (2017).  However, we will see what quality of script he gets (if he indeed becomes the Batman).   While the choice may get panned at first, it may work out.  Christian Bale was not warmly received because they said he was too skinny to play the role but he bulked up and Pattinson is also skinny but could also bulk up.  Heath Ledger was ridiculed at first as a choice for the Joker.

Nicholas Hoult is also a top contender for the role.  He played Hank McCoy / Beast in the X-Men reboot starting with First Class.

Why not just go with Brandon Frasier. He is a better actor and is a more polished version of Pattinson

I've never seen any of his work except for the movie Good Time which was an excellent movie.

Yeah that was decent... He was also in one called The Rover which was also pretty good, kind of a dystopian type movie. I think both were/are on Netflix or AP.

Don't see the problem, he played a vampire and they turn into bats, right...seems like a natural progression.

I had to look that up. 

 

I always thought Robert Pattinson was the guy who played Arli$$.

 

Still, possibly better than Michael Keaton.

Remember, this is the guy that Donald Trump wrote like two dozen tweets about. So now it's Batman versus Fatman!

I never watched those vampire movies that he was in. But here's how bad they must have been. Anna Kendrick didn't even remember that she was in those movies.

 

Literally, has he done anything since?

He was in a movie called The Lighthouse with Willem Defoe last year by the same guy who directed The Witch in 2016-17. Haven’t seen it yet but The Witch was great and Pattinson is supposed to be really good in it.

Anna Kendrick was the female lead in the Accountant (2016)  starring former Batman Ben Affleck.
