As Deadline has stated, after considering Robert and Nicholas Hoult – an X-men star, this studio decided to make Robert Batman. This news was reported earlier this month. The studio claimed that both male stars were more than impressive and suitable for the role, but then they eventually decided to pick Robert as the upcoming Batman. It is also reported that the studio is having the intention of making a Batman trilogy starring Robert Pattinson. Fans are expecting Deadline to announce the news officially.

Robert Pattinson has risen like a star from his former role of Edward in Twilight saga. The male actor was earlier spotted as Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter films. He then contributed to some movies like High-Life, Good Time and will play a character in The Lighthouse. Moreover, Robert is playing a role in the upcoming thriller Tener – another film from Christopher Nolan.

There is a whole different aspect of Batman in the comic

Reeves hinted in the latest interview about things that fans might expect from the film. Reeves stated that the movie is a noir tale of Batman and it is indeed a view-driven product. He also mentioned that this film should tell a precise story of the Dark Knight and that it should be emotional and thrilling at the same time. Fans will get to see the Dark Knight in his detective mode way more than his hero mode. As known in the comics, Batman was originally seen as one of the world’s best detectives, not a hero. Fans will be able to see a whole different aspect of the Batman from what they have seen on screen.
