Robert Pattinson has begun rehearsing for his role as the Caped Crusader in the Matt Reeves-directed The Batman.
Speaking to The Observer this past week to promote the UK release of The Lighthouse, it was revealed that rehearsals have begun on Robert Pattinson’s The Batman. Now, The Batman has begun rehearsals in London, with production set to begin soon. A funeral scene is also being shot in the UK for The Batman, though it’s currently unclear if Matt Reeves will be filming the entire movie there.
What’s considerably special for these rehearsals is that they’re taking place in the exact same studio where, over a decade ago, Robert Pattinson was filming his scenes for Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. After that movie, Robert Pattinson went on to star in the Twilight franchise, which ended its run in 2012. Since then, Robert Pattinson has starred in world-class independent films that have quickly turned around the way the moody actor has been perceived by general audiences.
With The Batman beginning rehearsals, it’s expected that cameras will begin rolling sometime in the next month or two. The film has quite a bit of time until its release date, which means Robert Pattinson and co-stars Zoe Kravitz and Paul Dano will have considerable time to fine-tune their performances. It isn’t clear who is participating in these rehearsals alongside Robert Pattinson.

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, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Peter Sarsgaard. Recently, Colin Farrell was reportedly in talks to play the Penguin.
The Batman will be released in theaters on June 25, 2021.
