The Batman, which stars Robert Pattinson is now out and has been praised by critics. The return of Pattinson is likely to confirm his status as an A-list actor.
It’s incredibly difficult to get rid of the ghosts of Edward Cullen from Twilight and Cedric Diggergory from Harry Potter. Robert Pattinson managed it. This week was the debut of Matt Reeves’ The Batman. Pattinson is now the type of person that people would like to support. While Pattinson does not appear to be the usual charismatic and wealthy playboy Batman actor, there is something to be admired in his portrayal of Bruce Wayne.
Although he’s been away from his previous roles Pattinson’s character is the Caped Crusader. He was given roles in films like Good Time, Tenet and The Lighthouse after completing the Twilight series. He has gained respect for his acting abilities in each of these films and has helped him take on more the more mature roles.
It is evident in Good Time that he’s not always the dark and brooding character that can be difficult to approach or is distant. He has pushed his limits. He’s not a stereotyped actor in any of his characters.
The Batman also features Zoe Kravitz and Paul Dano as Catwoman, The Riddler as The Riddler and The Penguin as Colin Farrell. The Gotham version is quite different from the epic Christopher Nolan trilogy. It’s darker, more gritty and more balanced in tone.
Following the disaster of Justice League the public can feel optimistic that studios will invest more time in constructing their movies. While Ben Affleck tried his best but it’s possible that the studios could have done better with the help of Robert Pattinson as an actor. Each actor will get their own moment of fame, instead of having to divide their time between prominent characters like Wonder Woman, Superman, Aquaman and The Flash. They’ll have many more individual films to their name, and will have the chance to come together for their next film as an ensemble. We’re hoping Pattinson will be able to join us.
While not much information has been disclosed regarding his plans to make an appearance within the expanded DCEU It is nearly sure that there will be an additional installment. We’ll have to wait and keep an eye out for The Bat.
