Robert Pattinson hopes to see The Batman take on The Court of Owls in a potential sequel.

The Batman is finally set to enter cinemas in less than a month. The highly-anticipated DC reboot will see Robert Pattinson taking on the role of The Caped Crusader. Pattinson’s take on The Dark Knight is admittedly more grounded and brooding than previous versions. We likely won’t see this version of Batman taking on supernatural and fantastical villains like Man-Bat or Poison Ivy. Instead, we’ll be getting characters more grounded in reality. Who is next after Batman takes on The Riddler, Penguin, and Catwoman in his latest film? Only time will tell…

While we don’t know what DC and Warner Bros. has in store for the character after The Batman, Robert Pattinson has revealed that he’s interested in seeing the vigilante take on The Court of Owls. Early rumors for The Batman suggested that the secret society would be at the heart of Robert Pattinson’s debut but doesn’t seem to be the case now that we know The Riddler is in harassing Gotham.

Speaking with Den of Geek, Pattinson discussed how he would love for the hero to battle The Court of Owls in a future project. The star also touched upon how the film delves into horror, which is a stark departure from Ben Affleck’s Batman battling para-demons just a few years ago.

I’d love to do something like Court of Owls… There are elements of The Batman which are kind of horror and I think it really feels quite new for Batman.

Who else would Robert Pattinson like to see Batman tackle next? Calendar Man, a serial killer who targets people based on holidays and key events. Sounds gritty enough.

Here is the synopsis for The Batman:

Two years of stalking the streets as the Batman (Robert Pattinson), striking fear into the hearts of criminals, has led Bruce Wayne deep into the shadows of Gotham City. With only a few trusted allies — Alfred Pennyworth (Andy Serkis), Lt. James Gordon (Jeffrey Wright) — amongst the city’s corrupt network of officials and high-profile figures, the lone vigilante has established himself as the sole embodiment of vengeance amongst his fellow citizens.

When a killer targets Gotham’s elite with a series of sadistic machinations, a trail of cryptic clues sends the World’s Greatest Detective on an investigation into the underworld, where he encounters such characters as Selina Kyle/aka Catwoman (Zoë Kravitz), Oswald Cobblepot/aka the Penguin (Colin Farrell), Carmine Falcone (John Turturro), and Edward Nashton/aka the Riddler (Paul Dano). As the evidence begins to lead closer to home and the scale of the perpetrator’s plans becomes clear, Batman must forge new relationships, unmask the culprit, and bring justice to the abuse of power and corruption that has long plagued Gotham City.

Directed by Matt Reeves, The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as the titular hero, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as 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 will hit theaters on March 4, 2022. Stay tuned for all the latest news surrounding the upcoming film and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
