Batman fans have been waiting on pins and needles for years to see what will come next for the character on the silver screen. Sure, we’ve seen the character in films like Batman v Superman and Justice League, but we haven’t had him in a standalone film for a solid seven years, and the stories that can be told in a solitary world differ greatly from ones told within an established universe.
Matt Reeves is the man taking the helm for the next iteration, and while there have been rumors abound about the potential direction for the story, the only official thing we know is that Robert Pattinson will be playing the Caped Crusader. Speaking with Variety, Pattinson mentioned his excitement for the upcoming movie.
“I really like Matt Reeves and his setup for it. It’s an interesting direction. It’s something from the comics that hasn’t been really explored yet.”
And speaking of diving into something that hasn’t been explored yet, Pattinson is very impressed with how versatile the character of Batman actually is.
“It’s interesting the different directions you can take with it. It’s, in some ways, quite a specific character, but there’s actually quite a lot of leeway. I mean, if you look at the different tones of all these movies and all these TV shows, you can do quite a lot with it.”
So what direction is this movie headed in? Will it really be a supervillain-laden world with Batman’s detective skills at the forefront? That does seem to be the consensus among fans and in leaks, but you never know, right? What do you hope to see? Let us know your thoughts down below!
