A new image shows X-Men star Nicholas Hoult as Two-Face for Robert Pattinson’s The Batman universe.
Although he was originally in the running to star in the Matt Reeves-directed The Batman, a fan-made image depicts Nicholas Hoult as a menacing version of the DC Comics villain Two-Face to go up against Robert Pattinson in the new franchise. The Batman is currently still in production and the shoot is reportedly “gruelling” for Pattinson as Reeves is apparently feeling the pressure to get the film right as the ongoing global crisis continues to cause havoc on the film and television industry.
The fan art from Instagram user ‘britedit’ imagines the British actor who previously appeared in films like X-Men: First Class, X-Men: Apocalypse and Mad Max as a new version of Harvey Dent, a.k.a. Two-Face. The design gives Nicholas Hoult the signature burnt look alongside a two tone suit which harks back to the Tommy Lee-Jones version of the DC Comics icon from Batman Forever. You can see Nicholas Hoult as Two-Face below.

The plot of The Batman is being kept under lock and key, but we know the film will follow Robert Pattinson as a younger Bruce Wayne, chronicling Batman during his second year as Gotham City’s Caped Crusader. The Batman will also show off the hero using his skills as a detective more than what we’ve seen before in previous versions of the character. It is also expected to be the first installment in a new trilogy of films starring Pattinson.
Directed by Matt Reeves from a script he co-wrote with Mattson Tomlin, Robert Pattinson stars as the Caped Crusader, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson, Jayme Lawson as Bella Reál, with Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Colin Farrell as the Penguin.
The Batman is currently scheduled to open in theaters on March 4, 2022. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for all the latest news regarding Nicholas Hoult, Two-Face and Robert Pattinson, and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more video content.
