… every A-lister in their 30s was chasing the role. It wasn’t long before Bong and execs were impressed with Pattinson following his meeting and felt he was perfect for the role, with an offer going out right before the new year.

Deadline, 20 January 2022

UPDATE: 28 April 2022

So Edward Ashton tweeted out movieweb’s article on Mickey7. I’ve got this book lined up to read next and am so looking forward to it. Although Rob still hasn’t officially been confirmed (Bong Joon would be nuts not to secure him), this is what Movieweb had to say:

Set in a future where humans are colonizing distant planets and cloning is a reality, the upcoming film will mark Bong’s first foray into intergalactic science fiction. His previous sci-fi films have been strictly terrestrial.

This should be an interesting change of pace from the realistic class comedy/drama/horror Parasite, but don’t expect the auteur to lay off on the earthly social commentary: Bong has explored many genres and has always grounded his films in contemporary satire, no matter how fantastical the story. He has a deep understanding of the relationship between genre tropes and sociology and has used movie formulas to explicitly explore themes implicit in the genres themselves (e.g., environmental terror and neglect in the monster movie are made overt in the Host (2006), while class inequality and social Darwinism in the dystopian sci-fi thriller is explored and subverted in Snowpiercer (2013), Bong’s first English language film).

The Mickey7 novel is full of ideas about labor, corporate control, and colonialism, all told through the protagonist’s gallows humor. There’s plenty of room for Bong’s satire and directorial trademarks to shine through.

Robert Pattinson is in talks to star in the new film. This will mark the first collaboration between the actor and Bong Joon-Ho, but the pair seem like an excellent match. Pattinson has established his acting chops, shedding the pretty boy image cultivated in the Twilight Films and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. In recent years Pattinson has worked predominantly in auteur-driven cinema, kinetic films with brooding atmosphere, and occasionally absurd humor, such as Good Time (2017) and the Lighthouse (2019). While both of those films are utterly unique, they share common artistry, tension, and strangeness with the films of Bong Joon-Ho, and Pattinson is no doubt up for the plunge into his dark, chaotic world. Though little is known about the casting (or the screenplay), we can assume that Pattinson will take on the role of Mickey and his various incarnations.

Looking forward to these two doing another photoshoot. Not that we doubted it, considering how successful The Batman has been, but thankfully Warner Bros confirmed at CinemaCon today that The Batman 2 has been greenlit with Rob returning for the role. From Deadline:

No surprise here: The Batman 2 is happening with Matt Reeves returning as director and Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader, Warner Bros. Motion Picture Group Boss Toby Emmerich announced today during the studio’s CinemaCon presentation in Las Vegas.

The news comes at a time when the movie has clocked more than $760M around the globe and a viewership of 4.1M households on HBO Max in its first week. That topped the viewership of such Warner Bros day-and-date movies last year as Suicide Squad, Dune, Wonder Woman 1984 and The Matrix Resurrections. The Batman is Warners’ first theatrical-window release since Christopher Nolan’s Tenet in August 2020, after the studio adopted a pandemic theatrical day-and-date strategy its 2021 slate including December 2020’s Wonder Woman 1984. 

Reeves took the stage briefly and said to the room of exhibitors: “Thank you all for your tremendous support for The Batman. We couldn’t have gotten here without the faith and enthusiasm of all your teams around the world. I’m excited to jump back into this world for the next chapter.”

It didn’t take long for IMDbPro to update

HBO Max shared this great behind the scenes clip, but what I want to know is are we going to get more of the Bruce Wayne test footage.

Deadline: ‘The Batman’ First Week Viewership On HBO Max Bigger Than Streamer’s Theatrical Day & Date Titles – CinemaCon

Here’s some great news as CinemaCon kicks off today, underscoring the value of a 45-day theatrical window.

Not only can Warner Bros. celebrate racking up $750 WW and $365M stateside at the box office on Matt Reeves’ The Batman before the pic’s April 18 debut on HBO Max, but the DC movie’s first week viewership in Smart TV U.S. households at 4.1 million beats the first seven days of such HBO Max/Warner Bros. movies The Suicide Squad ($3.5M), Wonder Woman 1984 (3.2M), The Matrix Resurrections (3.2M) and Dune (2.3M) — all of which were same day theatrical day-and-date movies last year under Warner Bros. pandemic release plan. Batman‘s first week is the second best for a theatrical movie on HBO Max after New Line’s Mortal Kombat (4.3M). The Batman‘s first week was even bigger than Zack Snyder’s Justice League which pulled in 2.2M U.S. households, that pic a direct to HBO Max title.

Of the top 25 largest markets for The Batman in Live+6 day, Samba TV reports that Sacramento, CA over-indexed the most (+31%), followed by Philadelphia, PA (+26%) and Portland, OR (+22%).

Again, a positive sign here on Batman on HBO Max, demonstrating that when a studio creates a cultural event out of a movie, it trickles down into other ancillaries, enabling the IP to thrive. Batman‘s current B.O. is $367.7M U.S., $754.3M WW.
