Who Are The Bat-contenders For The New Batman Movie?
February 5, 2019
Ben Affleck has hung his cape and will not be acting in the Matt Reeve’s The Batman which will be releasing in June 2021, which means the hunt for the next caped crusader is on! Batman has been played by some truly brilliant actors before; from George Clooney to Christian Bale, the DC superhero is a coveted role and actors like Nick Jonas are already showing interest! But we really don’t see him in wearing the mask and pulling off the charm of Bruce Wayne. However, we’re really warming up to Robert Pattinson OR Armie Hammer in black spandex.
Considering that The Batman revolves around a younger Bruce Wayne, it’s very likely that these two stars are next in line to inherit the Wayne Manor (and Batmobile). Earlier, rumor had it that Armie Hammer was definitely going to be in lead. The actor had early bagged a role as Batman in George Miller’s Justice League: Mortal, however, the movie was shelved. He has since had some mention-worthy performances in The Lone Ranger and The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Also, he’s a real-life millionaire heir, just like Bruce.
On the other hand, Pattinson is no newcomer to big action franchises and we really do see him playing Gotham’s poster boy. He pretty much fits the bill! This fan art by BossLogic is basically what fueled the rumor. However, it’s going to be sometime before Reeve’s releases a casting announcement, so till then Gotham City will have to wait.
Other actors on the bat-contender list are: Kit Harrington, Ryan Gosling, Ryan Guzman, Ben Barnes and Tom Hopper.
A choice that I never would have thought to try but been hearing some background chatter about Robert Pattinson being looked at, if the talks (source) are true then all of our predictions were wrong 👀😁 This might be your new Bruce #thebatman #batman pic.twitter.com/cNDKeRBzyb
