The Batman started filming in January, but because of COVID-19, the pause button was pressed on filming in March. Filming started up again just a few days ago in England, but well, coronavirus let every Batman villain know to have a damn seat and let a real demon monster wreak havoc, because Vanity Fair says that production has stopped again and this time it’s because Robert Pattinson caught COVID-19. First, Black Adam and now Batman?! Corona is coming for the DC superheroes. Wonder Woman better stop organizing her follow-up to Imagine and throw every mask on her face before soaking in a tub of Purell while holding onto her shield of protection.
Robert Pattinson recently did an interview with The Guardian where he talked about how he doesn’t know how to act and promises that if The Batman becomes an Affleck-like disaster, he’ll enter into the world of art house porn. Which based on his own assessment of his acting abilities, I guess we have more art house porn to look forward to in 2020!
It’s time for your bi-weekly The Batman update! When we last caught up with the conversations from inside The Batman casting room, we learned that Robert Pattinson’s Batman wasn’t going to be facing off against a sardonic stoner version of The Penguin (aka Jonah Hill was out). Paul Dano was confirmed as The Riddler, Zoe Kravitz is Catwoman, and Jeffrey Wright is Commissioner Gordon. Now it looks like Colin Farrell is The Penguin.
Josh Gad just ran full-tilt to his phone and frantically called his agent, screaming “ME ME ME, I’LL DO IT!” when he read that the role of The Penguin in The Batman was back up for grabs. Because Jonah Hill is no longer going to play The Penguin or The Riddler opposite Robert Pattinson as Batman.
Seen above making the same “unbothered but keeping it sexy” face your cat makes while watching you get the heaves as you clean up the diarrhea it shat on the dining room rug for not greeting it the millisecond you got home, Zoe Kravitz will be the Catwoman to Robert Pattinson’s angsty, rich hipster millennial Batman in Matt Reeves‘ The Batman. When everyone found out that Catwoman would probably be in The Batman, there was a rumor that Vanessa Hudgens got the role (I mean, anybody who watched Rent Live knows that Vanessa can sound like a cat in heat getting viciously murdered), and then it was rumored that Matt Reeves was looking for a Zoe Kravitz-type (which is Hollywood for young, hot, and black). And now it looks like Matt Reeves got the ultimate Zoe Kravitz-type because he got Zoe Kravitz herself. And I think Sean Young just got the Guinness World Record for being the biggest robbery victim in history because she was ROBBED yet again!
So it looks like we can go ahead and push that rumor of a singing, dancing Catwoman out of the way. Because there’s a new list of possible Catwomans, and Vanessa Hudgens’ name isn’t on it. According to GeeksWorldwide, Warner Bros. has a shortlist of actresses they’re looking at to play Catwoman in The Batman, aka the Robert Pattinson Batman movie.
