After all, there are hundreds extra the place these got here from, however as we talked about above, the final consensus surrounding Pattinson’s casting appears to be pleasure combined with a bit of cautious optimism. And given how sudden that is, that’s completely comprehensible.
But it surely appears Warner Bros. has certainly discovered their man and now, we’ll all wait patiently to see simply what Pattinson, director Matt Reeves and the studio have cooked up for The Batman, which can enter manufacturing later this yr and be with us on June 25th, 2021.
