·2 mins read

The Robert Pattinson Batman movie is coming. It's called The Batman and yes, Pattinson is playing the titular role. He joins an impressive roster of former Batmen, which include Ben Affleck, Christian Bale, George Clooney, Val Kilmer, and Michael Keaton. I already can't wait to see this.

The film was in production when the COVID-19 pandemic shut down pretty much every Hollywood project on the planet. And after they got back to set, the cast and crew faced another delay after Pattinson reportedly contracted coronavirus in September. Now they're back at it again, complete with masks.

Here's everything we know so far about the Robert Pattinson Batman movie:

The cast. Pattinson is taking on the role of the Caped Crusader and will be joined by Zoë Kravitz as Selina Kyle/Catwoman and John Turturro as the villain, Carmine Falcone. Colin Farrell will play The Penguin. In October, photos emerged from the European set as filming resumed. Jeffery Wright, Peter Saarsgard, Paul Dano, and Andy Serkis will also costar in the new adaptation of the DC comic. It's directed by Matt Reeves, who's helmed such projects as Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, War for the Planet of the Apes, and Cloverfield. He also coproduced the 2016 Cloverfield spin-off film, 10 Cloverfield Lane.

The release date. Given the various coronavirus delays, the release date has been pushed to March 4, 2022, according to Deadline. Let the countdown begin.

The story. As with most of these big-budget comic book adaptations, the plot has been kept under wraps. But from the first trailer, it looks very dark and extremely creepy…more in the vein of The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises than other Batman films, which we are very here for.

This post will be updated as new information becomes available. Stay tuned for more updates.
