Robert Pattinson as The Dark Knight?

It is now the case that Robert Pattinson will be the next Batman in the upcoming Matt Reeves 2021 Warner Bros production.

Let's fill in the C.V.

As the doomed Cedric Diggory he had a short-lived but major role in the fourth outing in Harry Potter world. He then reached mega-stardom in the Twilight series as Edward Cullen. A vampire with existential crises and a major jones for a mouth-breathing, petulant, and determinedly un-sexy and clumsy schoolgirl.

He then went onto a few slated performances. In Remember Me a movie I loved. The whole production was vilified due to (no spoilers) its end twist.

Then came the Maps to the Stars. A powerhouse study of the seedy psychological damage suffered by the polar ends of the Hollywood movie populace. He plays a struggling extra. This is not a date night or lads/ladies in movie, but it is a brilliant one none the less. He moved into similarly dark tones for the highly-praised Good Time A film I was not that enamored with personally.

Then came the news he was next in line for the caped crusader. I thought it was a brilliant idea. I love Robert Pattinson. It was like a coin-drop. A perfect choice. The right mood, the right physique, the right chin for god's sake!

I think it is an inspired choice. a man who has done the teen-idol thing and survived it, then equally rode out the avant-garde and think-piece stuff. I predict a great movie.

Editors Note

Every page asks you to subscribe, like, and comment. I used to get annoyed by it. I now realise that it is what counts and the only chance independent blogs have. So please take the second it requires to do these. I am working really hard on these, and I get nothing in return, except the buzz of people reading it, which is great and exactly why I do it. However, if I don't get joiners, likers, or comments, that will stop happening, as without strong SEO this will wither and die . Thank you

Agreed. If Daniel Radcliffe can go from a bespectacled boy wizard to a gun toting rescuer then I’m sure Robert can play the masked crusader and play the role well.
