While the world awaits his debut as the Dark Knight, can it be expected that Robert Pattinson will be teaming up with other DC heroes?
Apparently, Warner Bros. has big plans on the direction they will be taking Robert Pattinson’s Batman. The Twilight star will be making his entry into the superhero world with Matt Reeves’ The Batman, and the actor won’t be stopping at one. Like Ben Affleck, who donned the mask and the cape before him, Pattinson might also be standing with the rest of the supers of the DC Universe in a Justice League movie.
The circling rumors
This bit of information was received from the same sources that said that Tom Welling would be returning as Superman for Crisis on Infinite Earths, Nightwing’s debut on Titans season 2, and Viola Davis will be playing Amanda Waller in Suicide Squad.
WB’s plans of making Justice League a worthy contender for The Avengers ended in hot water, and many issues came up after that. They are now planning to reboot the Justice League, and if it gets greenlit, we will be seeing Pattinson returning as the caped crusader.
Till now, we have heard that Pattinson has signed for a three-picture deal with WB as they might be making The Batman a trilogy as Christopher Nolan did. But he can very well sign more deals in their future endeavors. Another bit of information was that J.J. Abrams was being eyed to direct a JL movie if it gets made. Suicide Squad director James Gunn is also being considered, but nothing further can be said about that.
Meanwhile, The Batman shoot is being halted due to the coronavirus pandemic and will be released late next year.
