The Caped Crusader is set to return, and this time Robert Pattinson will be stepping into his shoes. We’ve seen tons of people take on Bruce Wayne. From Michael Keaton to Christan Bale and, of course, more recently, the controversial casting of Ben Affleck. However, everyone seems to agree that seeing Harry Potter alum Robert Pattison take on Batman will be a sight to behold.
When news hit the internet that Pattison had been cast in the role in the spring of 2019 — fans immediately coined the term “Battinson,” and nothing has been the same. Since then, Zoë Kravitz has joined the film to play Selina Kyle/Catwoman, and we’ve gotten more casting deets, release date, and a trickle of plot details.
Now, director Matt Reeves has just released new footage of Pattinson as Batman and we’re thrilled.

If you have a pulse, you probably have some inkling about Bruce Wayne’s backstory. However, Reeves is determined to deliver something a bit different.
“It’s very much a point of view-driven, noir Batman tale,” Reeves told The Hollywood Reporter. “It’s told very squarely on [Batman’s] shoulders, and I hope it’s going to be a story that will be thrilling but also emotional. It’s more Batman in his detective mode than we’ve seen in the films. The comics have a history of that. He’s supposed to be the world’s greatest detective, and that’s not necessarily been a part of what the movies have been.
The Batman will be released on June 25, 2021, the same year as Tom Holland’s third Spider-Man installment and Thor: Love & Thunder, with Natalie Portman taking on the titular role.
