Longtime Batman producer Michael E. Uslan opened up about Matt Reeves casting Robert Pattinson recently at a convention in Germany.
A huge reason why Batman is a cinematic success is because of Michael E. Uslan. The longtime Batman producer has been apart of the franchise since Tim Burton’s 1989 film and continues to serve an executive producer. Michael E. Uslan recently opened up about Matt Reeves’ casting of Robert Pattinson, and said the following at the CCXP Cologne Convention:
“My position is this: trust the filmmaker and give the filmmaker, and the filmmaker’s vision, the benefit of the doubt. Then wait ’til you see the movie. And then once you see the movie, judge the hell out of it. But I think that’s really the formula going forward. I couldn’t be happier, I couldn’t be more enthused, as a Batman fan, that Matt Reeves is the filmmaker in charge and has selected Robert Pattinson to be his next Batman.”
