Robert Pattinson is eager to begin working on the Matt Reeves-directed The Batman.
Playing Batman would be a dream come-true for everyone, but it’s a dream that Robert Pattinson is very eager to begin fulfilling. Best known for roles as dark, quiet anti-heroes in recent years, Robert Pattinson was awarded the role of Batman after Ben Affleck left the film that Matt Reeves was set to direct. Matt Reeves had been toiling away at the script for quite some time, making it as perfect as he possibly could.
It almost feels as if it’s been ages since we began hearing about The Batman, but cameras are set to begin rolling relatively soon. However, one person who is very eager to begin filming is Robert Pattinson, who is currently doing a bevy of promotional appearances for his film The Lighthouse. Speaking to TODAY, Robert Pattinson shared how he’s excited to begin working on The Batman.
“I think Matt Reeves has got a really good direction for it. I’m very kind of eager to get started on it.”
Robert Pattinson also discussed his genuine love for the character and how he’s more than thrilled to take on the role with Matt Reeves behind the camera.
“I love the kind of history of the part. I love every iteration of how it’s been played. It’s a very, very special part and I think it’s been very carefully — I feel like everyone’s really looked after the character and its history and there’s a lot of reverence for it. You can really feel it in the studio. You can’t say no to it and I really wanted to say yes.”
Fans are certainly excited to see what Robert Pattinson and director Matt Reeves have cooked up for this latest iteration of Batman. The film, which will begin filming soon, already has a world-caliber cast attached to it and Oscar-winning composer Micheal Giacchino to round out the score.

Full plot details for The Batman are currently under wraps, though the film will center around a younger Bruce Wayne and features a Rogues’ Gallery of villains that includes Catwoman, The Penguin, and The Riddler. The Matt Reeves film will follow Batman during his formative years as Gotham City’s protector and will make use of the Dark Knight’s detective skills to a greater extent than previous DC films. It is expected to be the first chapter in a new trilogy with Robert Pattinson as Batman.
Directed by Matt Reeves from a script he co-wrote with Mattson Tomlin, The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner James Gordon, Jayme Lawson as Bella, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, and Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth. Recently, Colin Farrell was reportedly in talks to play the Penguin.
The Batman will be released in theaters on June 25, 2021.
