The Hollywood Reporter says that not everyone is mad about Robert Pattinson being cast as Batman in The Batman. It was announced he got the role and like all things on the internet these days, people were divided. Well it seems like Batman-devotees who found Robert to be too much of a teeny-bopper really underestimated the sway that same teeny-bopper community has over the casting decisions of Hollywood movies, because it seems that the youth are huge supporters of The RBattz. a
Looks like the people who are working on the next Batman movie, called The Batman, really thought to themselves: “Hmmm, how can we piss off literally every single fan boy who we haven’t already alienated after Ben Affleck?” Well the brainstorming session has been completed and it was a rousing success! After it was rumored that Robert Pattinson and Nicholas Hoult were the last two left for the role, it looks like Warner Bros. has approved RBattz!
It’s a mid-to-late 2000s miracle! Well, at the very least, it’s a miracle for anyone who was a teen girl in 2008 who also happens to have any interest in the characters of the DC universe. Matt Reeves‘ standalone Batman movie, The Batman, is still in pre-production. The rumor is that Batman will be played by Robert Pattinson. And now there’s a rumor from a YouTube channel that Catwoman will be played by 2000s TV musical queen Vanessa Hudgens. I look forward to the scene where Batman and Catwoman battle in the high school cafeteria over the last plate of chicken fingers.
I’ve included this picture of Michelle Pfeiffer not to tease you into the false hope that Hollywood has made a good decision by casting her again as Catwoman. I chose it because it’s a great way to remind Hollywood that they can’t do any better for Catwoman, but bless their hearts for continuing to try (sorry, Halle Berry and Anne Hathaway). According to Collider, Catwoman’s next big screen appearance will be alongside The Penguin in The Batman.
The Superman suit isn’t the only spandex superhero costume that Warner Bros. might have to think about filling with a new actor. Rumors that Ben Affleck is done playing Batman have been circulating for over a year now, and Warner Bros. has never commented on that. If Warner Bros. is thinking of replacing Ben, Jon Hamm is up for it.
Ben Affleck’s face showed up in a trailer for Justice League at Comic-Con this weekend, and I hope everyone got a good look, because Justice League and Justice League Pt. 2 might be the last times you see Ben as Batman. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ben’s secret wish of putting his Batsuit into mothballs might come true sooner than he hoped.
