Imagine if it ends up being Taylor-Johnson after all

I like Hoult as an actor. That being said, if they choose him over Pattinson, I'll be severely disappointed.

I kind of don’t want Pattinson to even do this tbh.

Yeah, perhaps if WB didn't have so much trouble getting this off the ground.
Matt Reeves's involvement is promising, but it's getting increasingly difficult to have high hopes for this.

I'd be okay with Hoult too honestly. He can bulk up with diet and exercise for sure. And now I gotta fancast Lily Collins for Catwoman or Vicki Vale since they were just in a movie together :lol:

Looking forward to see if this film ever actually gets off the ground. A UK Productions Twitter account said that it would start shooting in London this autumn but now it's pushed back go early next year?

What's going on over there?

Maybe to accommodate Pattinson? Like I said before, wrapping Tenet probably coincides with the start of this films production i.e. not enough time for Pattinson to prepare.

For shooting to start early 2020 still makes sense for the summer 2012 release date though.

Yeah I can def understand being accomadting. I just wish we would have some type of start date set in stone because I'm getting tired of these rumors and these pushbacks.

Warner Bros Approves Robert Pattinson For ‘The Batman’
Warner Bros has approved Robert Pattinson as the star of The Batman, the trilogy of films that Matt Reeves will direct later this year, Deadline hears.

Pattinson has been considered a front runner because the filmmaker liked him, but the studio was torn between him and Nicholas Hoult, and wanted both of the actors on tape because this is such a big decision on a cornerstone Warner Bros DC franchise. Those meetings happened yesterday, I’m told, and the decision was made. Hoult, who starred in Tolkien and is about to reprise in X-Men: First Class, was impressive, but Pattinson will be the guy and negotiations will get underway any moment. The film is produced by Dylan Clark, who produced Reeves’ Planet of the Apes films. Expect an announcement imminently.

Pattinson is a strong choice. He certainly has been at the center of a zeitgest franchise before in Twilight Saga, and he has used the time after to show his chops as an actor. He has shown those chops in films like High Life, and is starring for Warner Bros in Christopher Nolan’s next film, and just debuted in the Robert Eggers-directed The Lighthouse at Cannes.

They’ve got to work out a deal that will clearly include options on at least two more films, but this is considered a formality in a drawn out process. Reeves’ film tracks Bruce Wayne in the formative stages of Batman, which is why they needed an actor in his early 30s.

This film will in no way carry on the work that Ben Affleck did as the older Batman in Batman Vs. Superman and Justice League. ... 24926/amp/
