New fan art imagines Robert Pattinson as The Batman Who Laughs.
Warner Bros. is set to reboot the Batman film series again with a new take on the DC hero from director Matt Reeves and actor Robert Pattinson. While this new version of the Caped Crusader appears to be more in line with the traditional version of the character, comic books have offered many takes on the Dark Knight through the years.
Now, new fan art by a digital artist known as “anarchy graphics” imagines Robert Pattinson as The Batman Who Laughs, one of the alternate versions of the Caped Crusader who exists within the multiverse. For those who are unaware, this incarnation of the Dark Knight is a hybrid of Bruce Wayne and the Joker.
You can check out the fan art in the post below.
The Batman Who Laughs was created by writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo. The character debuted in the crossover storyline titled Dark Nights: Metal and later received his own comic series.
Full plot details on 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. Following the Caped Crusader during his formative years as Gotham City’s protector, The Batman will also make use of the hero’s detective skills to a greater extent than previous live-action adaptations. 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, 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 be released in theaters on October 1, 2021.
