Celeb Rookie: Robert Pattinson a.k.a. The Batman

In order to follow the DC Comics movies today you almost need a diagram.  They started out like the Marvel films.  One taking place before or after another.  But apparently that format wasn’t working for them.  Instead of one movie depending on the next, they’ve changed things up.  Now they want to give key characters their own series of movies before they do anymore team-up stuff.  Little to no acknowledgment will be given to those previous team-up movies format.  I believe this new format started with 2018’s Aquaman.  Some actors will continue to play those characters under this new format, while others will be recast and rebooted.  In short, you need to know what’s going on behind the scenes in order to recognize what is and is not connected to each other.

One of those iconic characters getting a reboot is Batman.  I enjoyed Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman in Batman v. Superman Dawn of JusticeSuicide Squad, and Justice League.  I wish we could’ve seen more of that version of Batman.  He seemed to have quite a rich history to him.  It would’ve been nice to know the story behind that beat-up Robin suit in the Batcave.  All we can do is take what we know from the comics and apply it to what might have happened to that Robin.

Actor Robert Pattinson will take over the title role in the Matt Reeves directed film simply called The Batman.  It will take place during the 90’s.  Other confirmed characters include Catwoman (Zoë Kravitz), Riddler (Paul Dano), and Commissioner Gordon (Jeffrey Wright).  More will soon follow.

Robert Pattinson has starred in a number of films.  Portraying Cedric Diggory in two of the Harry Potter movies, and Edward Cullen in the Twilight series are what’s given him the most notoriety.  The Batman will be his biggest role yet.  Whenever a new actor is announced that they’ll be playing Batman, almost instantly they’re hit with an unbelievable amount of backlash.  I’m one of those people who waits to see the final product before making any judgments.

In 2005, Artbox created a trading card product for Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.  This is the first film where Robert Pattinson plays Cedric Diggory.  Within this set he has a handful of different cards.  His base card and autograph are what I like to classify as his key rookies.  You’ll find the base card fairly easily, but the autograph isn’t something that appears often.
