Borys Kit of The Hollywood Reporter gives us an inside look at the process that culminated in Warner Brother’s and Matt Reeves’ casting of Rob as the new ‘Batman’. We’ve shared an excerpt below. You can read the full article HERE.

“Quick” Debates and Secret Screen Tests: How Robert Pattinson Became Batman

Two weeks ago, a black jacket-clad Robert Pattinson faced flashbulbs and reporters at the Cannes Film Festival premiere of his period drama, The Lighthouse. When one guest approached him at the reception and said, “I heard you were the new Batman,” he offered only a sly smile and stayed mum.

In reality, Pattinson was not the Caped Crusader…just yet. Hours after his Cannes duties in designer duds, he would be on a plane to Los Angeles to face perhaps the biggest test of his acting career: putting on a Batsuit for director Matt Reeves, who is casting The Batman.

That test was officially passed Friday, when Warner Bros. announced that Pattinson had won the role. The decision was the culmination of an intense process that insiders describe as surprisingly quick. As opposed to most superhero casting efforts, which often include far-and-wide searches and dozens of screen tests for the likes of Superman or more recently, Spider-Man, the Batman process was notably smooth.
“It was quick,” says one Warners insider. “Quicker than normal.”

Matt Reeves tweets about Robert Pattinson as The Batman

We already knew Robert Pattinson was named as the new “Batman”, Matt Reeves tweet this morning just seals the deal further. Am wondering though if the 3 bats are confirmation that Rob has signed on for 3 films. If you recall Deadline did mention that the deal will “clearly include options on at least two more films, but this is considered a formality in a drawn out process.” Hmmm.

We’ve also created The Batman film page which we will keep updating. You can access via the image on the sidebar or through our film page tab. Alternatively you can bookmark it from HERE.

For those on instagram, there is also now an official Batman IG. Make sure you are following it.

Rob sure is making sure he’s keeping us busy – the next few years are going to be phenomenal.

After much speculation about “Who will be the new caped crusader?”, Warner Brothers has finally confirmed that Rob will take over the reins as the new ‘Batman’.

Via Variety.

Robert Pattinson is officially the new Batman.


Warner Bros. has closed a deal for the actor to play the Caped Crusader in “The Batman.”


Matt Reeves’ superhero tentpole hits theaters on June 25, 2021. Variety first reported on May 16 that Pattinson was in negotiations for the part. The studio confirmed on Friday that he had signed a deal.

Pre-production on the Warner Bros.-DC Comics pic is expected to start this summer. No official start date has been set for filming “The Batman.”


Reeves, the filmmaker behind the last two “Planet of the Apes” sequels, assumed “Batman” directing duties from Ben Affleck in January 2017. Reeves will produce “The Batman” with his “Planet of the Apes” collaborator Dylan Clark.


Affleck starred as Batman in two titles directed by Zack Snyder: 2016’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and 2017’s “Justice League.” Both films received mixed reviews and were a disappointment for Warner Bros. in its efforts to compete with Marvel Studios in the superhero realm.

Pattinson became a star following the breakout success of the five-film “Twilight” franchise, in which he portrayed the vampire Edward Cullen opposite Kristen Stewart’s Bella Swan.


Pattinson is starring with John David Washington in Christopher Nolan’s latest film, “Tenet,” set to open July 17, 2020. He toplines “The Lighthouse,” which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, and appeared in Claire Denis’ “High Life,” “The King” for Netflix and “Waiting for the Barbarians.”


He is repped by WME, the Curtis Brown Group and 3 Arts Entertainment.
