A New Dark Knight
As we mentioned, Robert Pattinson is stepping into the role of Bruce Wayne—representing a younger version of Batman compared to previous stars Ben Affleck and Christian Bale. The internet went a little crazy when the news broke, likely remembering Pattinson as the guy who starred in those Twilight movies. But in recent years, Pattinson has been putting out strong performance after strong performance in independent movies like Good Time, The Lighthouse, High Life, Cosmopolis, and The Lost City of Z. Pattinson will star in Christopher Nolan’s next film, Tenet, before working on The Batman.
Updated Casting News: The primary cast of the film is now confirmed, with Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne / Batman, Zoë Kravitz as Selina Kyle / Catwoman, Paul Dano as Edward Nashton / Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Colin Farrell as Oswald “Oz” Cobblepot / Penguin, and Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth. Previously, actors Peter Sarsgaard and Jayme Lawson were cast in the film, but their roles were unknown—but now, they’ve been revealed officially by Warner Bros.: Sarsgaard is playing Gil Colson, a Gotham D.A., while Lawson is playing Bella Reál, a mayoral candidate in Gotham. This has shaped up as an incredible cast.
