The Next Batman

Recommended Posts

I remember Christian Bail saying that he would consider reprising the role but they were ready to move on from him post-Nolan. Seems weird they’d dump one of the top 2 (or 3 depending how much you love Adam West) batmen for this vampire tranny. DC keeps screwing up their Supermen too. At least they locked down a hottie for WW.

Warner Bros are Team Edward it seems. Ghost of Tom Joad will be pleased.

Pre-production could begin this summer.

The Batman

    Twilight star Robert Pattinson will reportedly star in the title role in The Batman, director Matt Reeves' upcoming DC Comics movie.Variety reports that pre-production begins this summer. Matt Reeves is still polishing the script.

 

"No official start date has been set for The Batman. Insiders tell Variety filming could start in late 2019 or early 2020," according to the trade.

 

Pattinson will be the sixth actor to play the modern incarnation of the Dark Knight on the big screen since Michael Keaton starred in 1989's Batman. He succeeds Ben Affleck in the role, who bowed out after playing the Dark Knight in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League. Rpats_Batman-720x405.jpeg?fit=crop&dpr=1&quality=75&width=96&height=96Robert Pattinson will play the title role in The Batman. Pattinson's next movie will be Christopher Nolan's next film, which also stars John David Washington.

 

His film credits include not only his star-making turn as vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight franchise, but in more recent years he has appeared in such indie films The Lost City of Z, High Life, Maps to the Stars, and Queen of the Desert.

 

The Batman swings into theaters June 25, 2021.

 

 

 

Maybe we are reading this wrong. Perhaps Pattinson will be a vampire again this time as Dracula in the live action version of this

So now with a decent amount of movies by both the DC and MCU groups, who would you guys say is winning? And would you say hiring Diggory helps DC?

DC vs MCU reminds me of something....

I actually had no issue with Affleck's Batman.  The issue was the material, not really with Ben.  

The whole Martha/Lois dream thing, even in the extended version, really lost me.

So this super-chinned Batman weighs 160 pounds and wears a techno armor suit with shoulder pads and a popped collar? Christ my jockeys can barely contain my boner right now.

These comic book turned movies have ruined the theatre experience in my view. I hate them. We don’t need a Batman and spider man movie every damn year. Enough already.

I tend to agree.  But many folks had similar concerns about Keaton, Bale and Aflac.  They all turned out fine.

Not to pick on you, @troph, but it's not about what you need. (This goes to all the other surly-ites who complain about genres of movies, not just comic book type, that they don't like.) 

If people are willing to pay to watch these movies, they are going to continue to be made. We all know Hollywood tends to be formulaic and will churn out what ever makes a buck. 

It's simple, if you don't like these kind of movies, don't pay to watch them. I just don't understand why do you have to go on a thread and make negative comments about these movies that you don't like. If you watch the movie and it was bad, then sure comment about how it stunk.

I personally don't care to watch Rom-Coms or reality type shows like Survivor, but I don't go on any of those movie/show threads to complain about these kinds of movies/shows being made.

Since I don't go on the Music Forum, are the same type of comments made there? Is it a Surly thing to bash a genre just because you don't like it?

What I find fascinating is we are going through a period of cinematic over saturation the same way the film industry did with Western's in the 50's.  It's a money business and hollywood is going to keep pumping these things out until they stop making money.

You are allowed to have different takes on a character. This is supposed to be more along the lines of The Animated Series. Also, Joker was just nominated for Best Picture and had its second actor win an Oscar for his take on the role. Hiring directors for their vision is what separates DC from Marvel and why I’ll give these more of a chance than Phase 4. Matt Reeves is a terrific director. 
 

Also, the bat symbol is rumored to be based off of this:

Yeah I hear ya. I just favor the type of Batman that's less emo ninja and more put your cranium through a wall. A la Frank Miller.

I know im in the minority but i liked Afleck as Batman.

I thought it was a horrible idea, but was pleasantly surprised.  I thought he was solid in the role.

 

Is the new movie going to be a continuation of the Justice League DCU timeline?

Negative. By all accounts, these will stand separate from the DCEU.

And yes if you look close the bat symbol is made from a gun.

Did you get a good look at what he’s wearing? Collared cape, shoulder pads, emblem crafted from gun parts... the only thing it’s missing is nipples.
