Robert Pattinson being chosen as the next Dark Knight isn’t the first time the character has had casting controversy. From the early days of the Caped Crusader’s adventures people have expressed ther feelings on who plays the Batman.
Michael E. Uslan, a producer on the franchise recently spoke at Germany’s CCXP Cologne convention and said fans should be more trusting in Matt Reeves’ vision. You can check out what he had to say below.
“The star of the Batman movies is Bruce Wayne. Batman is the star. Batman is who everyone wants to see, along with the supervillains, so how does a filmmaker make the choice of which actor to cast? And I think the real key question for fans, and for all of us to focus on, is the filmmaker. So we’ve seen the genius of Tim Burton, we have seen the genius of Christopher Nolan. The question becomes: is there a filmmaker who you see has a knowledge of a character, has an understanding of a character, a passion and a love for the character? Does that filmmaker have a vision for the character? And if so, does he or she, do you believe, know how to execute that vision? And if you can answer those questions successfully, then for me, my role is to become the world’s number one cheerleader. And you have to trust in your filmmakers.”

I’ve learned to reserve judgment on casting, especially in the case of the Batman franchise. Keaton surprised a lot of people and Heath Ledger blew the minds of fans after an initial backlash against his casting of the Joker. WHile the casting and the movies haven’t always worked out for the best, all fans can really do, is wait, and see this vision play out.
