Mattson Tomlin, co-writer of Robert Pattinson’s upcoming DC superhero film, The Batman has responded to critics of the film’s version of Bruce Wayne.
Last Saturday, the second trailer for The Batman was released during the DC FanDome event. Like the first trailer, it was overall very well received and drew positive comparisons to David Fincher films like Seven. One of the most notable aspects of the film, however, was just how angry Robert Pattinson’s version of Bruce Wayne seemed to be.
In the trailer, Batman is notably more brutal in his fight against criminals in perhaps any other version. He runs people off the road, beats them to a pulp, and electrocutes them in the middle of the fight. This angrier version of the Caped Crusader has not gone without its critics who note that the character probably needs to see a shrink as soon as possible. In a recent post, The Batman co-writer Mattson Tomlin responded to the criticism noting how the character going to therapy wouldn’t necessarily solve his issues:
The plot of Robert Pattinson’s The Batman is being kept under lock and key, but we know the film will follow Robert Pattinson as a younger version of Bruce Wayne, chronicling Batman during his second year as the Dark Knight of Gotham City. The film will also show off the hero using his skills as a detective more than what we’ve seen before in previous versions of the hero. It is also expected to be the first installment in a new trilogy of films with Pattinson.
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 on the upcoming Robert Pattinson film and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
