Robert Pattinson is just as ready as many fans for production to begin on Matt Reeves' The Batman. Pattinson is set to portray the titular character, the Caped Crusader himself.
While on with the Today Show, Pattinson shared his admiration for the history of Batman on screen and all the actors that came before him. He then explained his excitement for production to begin. “I think Matt Reeves has got a really good direction for it," the actor said. "I’m very kind of eager to get started on it.”
Batman/Bruce Wayne has been portrayed live-action by Val Kilmer, Lewis G. Wilson, Robert Lowery, Adam West, Micheal Keaton, George Clooney, Christian Bale and Ben Affleck. Kevin Conroy famously provided the voice for Batman in Batman: The Animated Series. Conroy will be playing a live-action version of the character in The CW's Crisis on Infinite Earths.
There has been no official word on when exactly production will begin on The Batman. There is also no information on the plot, though there have been rumors that the film will be based on the classic Batman story The Long Halloween.
Directed and co-written by Matt Reeves, The Batman stars Robert Pattinson, Zoë Kravitz, Andy Serkis, Colin Farrell, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright, John Turturro and Jayme Lawson. The film arrives June 25, 2021.
