We know that finally, Matt Reeves’ Batman movie is moving ahead now that they have decided on Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader. There have been many rumors that Reeves’ movie will feature quite a few villains from Batman’s rogues’ gallery, those that have been rumored are Catwoman, Penguin, and The Riddler, but honestly, it was all just rumor.
However, now The GWW is reporting that four villains are confirmed for the movie we are currently calling The Batman. According to the outlet Reeves is looking for The Riddler as the main villain and is casting for a male actor of any ethnicity between the ages of 30 and 40. Not only that but they say Reeves is also casting for Catwoman, (female, any ethnicity, 20-30) Penguin, (male, any ethnicity, 20-40) and Firefly (male, any ethnicity, 20-30).
As you’d imagine the outlet does not reveal their source for this information, but they claim this is confirmed details and not just a rumor like we have seen reported elsewhere. We had also heard that Reeves’ movie would focus more on Batman as a detective and perhaps The Riddler with his many clues and puzzles, would work best as a villain for this type of Batman movie?
We certainly don’t expect to get any kind of official confirmation of this from WB/DC for quite some time. Though it seems as if this will become more apparent as Reeves casts the different roles for his movie. I still wonder whether Pattinson’s Batman will be the supposed younger version of Ben Affleck’s character, as we have also heard rumor this movie will be set in the ’90s, which may allow for the fact that Pattinson is only in his early ’30s?
Does this mean Pattinson will only appear in his own trilogy of movies and not appear in any cross overs with the rest of the DCEU, or will they use some time travel doohickey eventually to have Pattman appear with the likes of Wonder Woman and Aquaman in the ‘present’? It’s going to be very interesting to see how this all fits together as we discover more details about Matt Reeves’ The Batman movie.
