Robert Pattinson’s Batman is a badass, says The Batman star Jeffery Wright. The forthcoming DC Extended Universe film from director Matt Reeves (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) is quick to feature Pattinson’s adaptation of the notorious hero. After experiencing pandemic-related delays that caused principal photography to take a year, The Batman will release on March 4, 2022.
In a meeting with ET, Wright, who plays Gotham PD’s James Gordon in The Batman, gives the English actor’s adaptation of the Dark Knight his seal of approval. He depicts Pattinson’s personal performance style as cross section well with Reeves’ directorial vision, which should make for a quality final item. Wright also says he completely partook in their time on screen together:
Robert is gonna do his thing, and we were working inside a Matt Reeves vision, so you know, Robert is doing what Robert does and it’s gonna be pretty badass I think. […] I cherished working with him, I love his take and his energy and the way that he sort of carried various levels to various parts of the story. And we work off of each other.
As is customary at whatever point another Batman is cast, fans are isolated, and not because many actually associate Pattinson with sparkly vampires. The release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League reignited appreciation for Affleck’s interpretation of the character, and that the impacts of Warner Bros. decision to abandon Snyder’s vision for the DCEU are so clear in this film may create an innate bias against it. Be that as it may, Reeves’ track record and the colossal talent he’s assembled before the camera, Pattinson especially, propose The Batman has a real chance of beating these reservations.
