Do I normally care about Batman? No. Not unless it’s to tell the world that I want to understand how anyone ever thought that Ben Affleck would make a good Batman.
Cause that shit was bad choices on every level.
But when you mention the name Robert Pattinson and my fandom loving soul can’t help but be all yay for The Batman. Part of me is ashamed and the other part of me says fuck it.
The newest Batman was put on hold with the outbreak of Covid-19 and we totally get it. Safety first and we honestly will wait as long as it takes for Robert Pattinson anything.
And when you add the name Zoe Kravitz to the mix – it’s like hi, my fandoms are colliding and I can’t wait to see the greatness.
Zoe was talking with on Variety and iHeart podcast “The Big Ticket,” and talked about why Pattinson is perfect to play Batman.
“He started out as this kind of teen pop sensation, and then I think we all kind of saw through his work that there was a lot more going on,” Zoe said. “He’s a really interesting artist, and that is very much Batman in a way. We have the illusion of Bruce Wayne, and then we have Batman in the shadows that has a lot more complicated things going on.”
“So just in that, I think he’s perfect for this role. He can relate in that way, and he looks good in the suit, man. He looks good in the suit. That’s a good jaw line,” Zoe said about Pattinson. “But he’s just a great actor and he brings so much to everything he does. I think that it’s a really hard role because people are expecting a lot. Also it’s restricting in a lot of ways. You’re wearing the suit, and you can’t see their eyes, and you can only move in a certain way. So you have to get really creative in terms of how can you portray a multidimensional character? He’s way up for the challenge and has really interesting ideas already. I think he’s perfect, perfect casting.”
The movie is currently set for release on October 1, 2021, but don’t quote us on that. I mean after all, if there is anything we have learned, it’s that everything is subject to change.
