Robert Pattinson could potentially be the Most Valuable Player in Matt Reeves’ The Batman

According to BamSmackPow, “Robert Pattinson could potentially be the Most Valuable Player in Matt Reeves’ The Batman and become one of the all-time greatest in the process” and this is why:

Robert Pattinson’s casting as Bruce Wayne/Batman in The Batman saw the actor join a long-line of legendary actors who received unnecessary backlash from assuming critics that didn’t expect them to be cast in the role. And, like all of those other actors and actresses, he will more than likely prove those critics wrong.

Matt Reeves’ The Batman will set itself apart from previous live-action iterations (including the likes of Tim Burton and Joel Schumacher’s Batman film series and Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight trilogy) as it will be more driven towards the detective aspect of the DC Comics character.

That means that Pattinson isn’t just going to have to distinguish his performances of both Bruce Wayne and Batman, it means that he’s going to have to highlight their similarities too – bringing to life the more investigative, obsessive qualities of both Bruce and Batman.

What could aid Pattinson’s overall performance is the fact that the British actor has already depicted a billionaire before – a rather manipulative and sadistic one in 28-year-old asset manager Eric Packer in Cosmopolis. Pattinson can undoubtedly apply his experience in the David Cronenberg film to the Gotham socialite’s investigative and deductive skills.

Reeves clearly saw something in Pattinson from his interpretation of Wayne and Batman that he can’t wait to share with moviegoers. With the director as a guide and the script as a blueprint, all Pattinson has to do is interpret it in such a way that highlights both aspects of the character, showcasing their differences and their similarities.

Being that Reeves’ The Batman, which is rumored to take some inspiration from the works of Alfred Hitchcock, is believed to center on a murder mystery plot, this gives Pattinson the chance to shine through as The World’s Greatest Detective.

Remember the WFE discussion thread we posted back in March?  Am sure you all do.   Seeing as all (?) of us have seen the film now – well many of us multiple times *grins* we thought we could use the thread as a place to share our thoughts/opinions, to celebrate this beautiful film & of course, Rob’s brilliant portrayal of Jacob Jankowski. I cannot say enough how fantastic he is in the film.  The way he brought Jacob to life – just superb.  He never fails to blow me away.  This role was made for him.  Preaching to the converted I know – you all completely agree with me. I fall even more in love with Jacob & the film each time I watch. I cannot wait to own the DVD. Seriously I want it NOW!

Here’s the discussion link everyone, over to you!  There are of course going to be spoilers in this thread so if you haven’t seen the film (if so why haven’t you?)  don’t click on the link!

As Maria mentioned, we are in the process of doing discussion threads for all of Rob’s upcoming films & next up as you can see is Water For Elephants.  Not sure if there is anyone who hasn’t read the book, but in case there is – don’t go beyond the ‘more’ button as there will of course be spoilers.  Oh & also – do yourself a favour & read it asap.

Note: links to the discussion threads can be found on our Films page

So as I mentioned yesterday, we thought we would do a post that is basically a discussion thread for Cosmopolis.  Your thoughts on the book, which scenes you desperately want to see, maybe what you don’t want to see.  Now I know this book is sometimes slightly graphic so all I’m going to say is – don’t think I won’t moderate because I will.

So for those who don’t want any *spoilers* or who haven’t quite yet finished reading the book, DO NOT CLICK on “more” until you are ready to come in and chat.  Oh and perhaps you might all want to bookmark this post because I don’t want to sticky post it and it will, of course, disappear down the page with post updates (I’ve added a new category called Discussion Thread that you can also find under categories in the sidebar search bar.)
