All Bat… No Bite
Although we all now that Batti… sorry, Pattinson had been in final talks with Warners Bros. for a while, it’s good to hear directly from the man behind the film.
As usual the internet has exploded with negativity and petitions to change the studio’s mind. It’s an unfortunate challenge that all Batman actors must undertake. However let’s look at the positives that Robert brings:
- You can make at least two Batman puns with his name (please let us know if you come up with any more).
- That Jawline, check it out! (Endorsed by Willem Dafoe!)
I mean what else do you need?
Jokes aside, Pattison brings with him a serious background, having starred in some terrific roles that showcase his abilities (he’s made over a dozen movies since Twilight, people!)
I’m Genuinely pleased by the casting, but what’re your thoughts about Robert Pattinson as the New Batman? Please let us know.
