The Batman: Release Date, Cast, Villains and Everything Else You Need To Know

Posted 2019/10/24 993 0

The Batman begins. Again. Despite the release date being some way off, the 2021 reboot’s cast is slowly but surely filling. Now that Robert Pattinson has been confirmed as the third actor this century to don the Batsuit (after Christian Bale and Ben Affleck), it appears that the wheels are finally turning in regards to pre-production.

As there’s no sign of a teaser (let alone a trailer) at this early stage, we’ve had to mirror The World’s Greatest Detective and find out everything you need to know about The Batman from sources far and wide. That includes more on the villains that could face off against The Dark Knight, as well as possible plot rumours and potential leaks – read on for more about The Batman.

Fast Facts
The Batman release date: 25 June, 2021
The Batman director: Matt Reeves
The Batman writers: Matt Reeves, Mattson Tomlin
The Batman cast: Robert Pattinson, Jeffrey Wright, Zoe Kravitz, Paul Dano

If you discount Batman v Superman, this is the first solo Batman movie in nine years (The Dark Knight Rises released in 2012), making it the longest gap between Bat-Flicks since Tim Burton’s Batman arrived onto the scene.

The Batman cast
First, the big one: Robert Pattinson is playing Batman/Bruce Wayne.

The process of casting the former Twilight actor wasn’t without its ups and downs, however. Back in May 2019, Deadline reported that Matt Reeves had whittled his wish-list of Batman actors down to two: Robert Pattinson and Nicholas Hoult, who had previously played Beast in the X-Men franchise. Just two weeks later, Pattinson got the nod after a screen test.

Speaking about his upcoming role, Pattinson told The New York Times: “His morality is a little bit off. He’s not the golden boy, unlike almost every other comic-book character. There is a simplicity to his worldview, but where it sits is strange, which allows you to have more scope with the character.”

He’s also working on the Batman voice, having revealed a surprising inspiration for his disguised growls: Willem Dafoe.

Batman’s fellow crimefighter (on the right side of the law, depending on how you’re looking) is traditionally Commissioner Gordon. It’s the same again here, with Westworld’s Jeffrey Wright playing Gordon – as revealed back in September by The Hollywood Reporter. Unlike Pattinson, his casting hasn’t been officially confirmed as of writing.

Fleshing out the cast further is Catwoman, played by Zoe Kravitz. Signing on in October, Kravitz may have beaten several others to the role. Hobbs and Shaw’s Vanessa Kirby was at one time mooted as a frontrunner for the role of Selina Kyle, yet Kravitz won out in the end.

Finally, the most recent person to jump on-board The Batman is Paul Dano, who will be playing The Riddler. The news broke just a day after Jonah Hill decided to walk away from talks about playing an unnamed Batman villain.

The Little Miss Sunshine and There Will Be Blood actor is now tasked with bringing the character of Edward Nygma to life. It’ll be the first time The Riddler has appeared in a live-action Batman movie since Jim Carrey took on the role in Batman Forever.

Vincent D’Onofrio has also sent the casting rumour mill into overdrive by… quote tweeting a Matt Reeves tweet regarding Zoe Kravitz’s casting. 2019 is weird. The Kingpin actor hasn’t been confirmed as joining The Batman cast for the time being (though he wouldn’t make a half-bad Bane).
