Date: 3rd June 2019
Robert Pattinson was officially announced as the new Batman today, meaning that Matt Reeves' upcoming reboot of the Dark Knight’s big screen adventures is finally on the go.
Pattinson, 33, nabbed the role of Batman after reports swirled earlier this month that he and Nicholas Hoult were in the running for the gig.
The actor was officially cast on Friday and The Batman is tentatively set to hit theaters on June 25, 2021.
Forbes reports that the Boy Wonder could "potentially" play a role in The Batman, with a casting announcement said to be coming soon. When it'll arrive, we can’t say for sure, but while Batman and Robin are traditionally inseparable in the comics, in the movies, it's a different story.
Only four of the ten Batman solo films released so far have featured Dick Grayson’s sidekick. And one of those is Michael Cera’s turn in The LEGO Batman Movie.
