THE BATMAN casting roundup


Over the last 48hrs there have been plenty more casting rumours and “confirmations” for The Batman.

Firstly The Wrap claimed insider knowledge that both Robert Pattinson and Nicholas Hoult would be undergoing costume screen tests next week. This rumour seemingly confirmed that Warner Bros. were down to their final two potential actors for the role.

Then Deadline went one step further claiming victory for Robert Pattinson in securing the role. According to their story Warner Bros. had formally offered him the part though the contract was yet to be signed.

According to their exclusive report Pattinson is being offered a three-movie contract. The story stipulated that Pattinson’s Batman would in no-way follow what previous actor, Ben Affleck, had started in Batman v Superman or Justice League.

Though no official announcement has been made it certainly seems like Pattinson may now be a lock to take on the role of The Dark Knight.

The Batman is due for release on June 25, 2021.
