As if there weren't enough Batman movies out there, it's time for one more. And, honestly, I'm not complaining.
Robert Pattinson, aka the former Twilight hunky vampire and indie film veteran, is stepping into the world of superheroes, but it's looking much darker than the Marvel movies. This is more along the lines of Joaquin Phoenix's Joker, and based on this first look, things get moody.
Director Matt Reeves shared to his Twitter the first camera test of Pattinson dressed in the full costume, and according to a previous post, filming has already begun. Zoë Kravitz will be starring alongside Pattinson in the film as Selina Kyle aka Catwoman.
Robert Pattinson talked with Variety about his role in the new Batman film.
At the time of this interview, Pattinson was more focused on his role in the bizarre drama The Lighthouse starring alongside Willem Dafoe, but even then his excitement for the role was palpable. He also spoke with Jennifer Lopez in an actors-on-actors interview about the significance of acting in a franchise, something Pattinson already knows well.
In 2008, the first Twilight film came out, and Pattinson became a major star. Now he's entering into another, arguably bigger, franchise.
