Reporting from Deadline, right at the end of May, Warner Bros. officially set Robert Pattinson as the “New” Caped Crusader. Apparently the studio had difficulty when choosing Pattinson or Nicholas Hoult, because they wanted both of them to be in this project. In the end Pattinson was the one who would wear “the cape and cowl” in Batman’s upcoming solo film.
Of course a lot of criticism came, even before the casting was made. Pattinson’s determination as Batman is a surprising choice. But keep in mind that Pattinson is an actor who has the experience, confidence, flexibility, and charisma needed to make himself the Dark Knight.
