Robert Pattinson who plays Bruce Wayne (Batman) will be accompanied by Zoë Kravitz in the role of Selina Kyle (Catwoman). In addition to this shock cast, the legendary actor Andy Serkis has put aside his roles in animated cinema (actor specializing in motion capture, he was behind the gestures of Gollum, Baloo, King Kong or Snoke, editor’s note) to play Alfred Pennyworth, Bruce Wayne’s faithful butler.

Commissioner Gordon, played by Jeffrey Wright, will apparently be a valuable ally for the vigilante.

In the supporting roles, Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson, the Gotham City district attorney, and Jayme Lawson as Bella Real, the mayoral candidate. Finally, it is an unrecognizable Colin Farrell who plays the famous Penguin, one of the leaders of the mafia.

The film has at least three villains. The first is Edward Nashton or the Mystery Man (Edward Nigma’s name was changed because he was too much of a comic book character). The second is Oswald “Oz” Cobblepot, aka The Penguin, and he is played by Colin Farrell. Finally the third, the leader of the mafia Carmine Falcone, is played by John Turturro.

As director Todd Phillips has said over and over again, Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker will not be connected to any other film. The Batman is also not in the same universe as Suicide Squad, which means that we will not see Jared Leto appear either.

However, there are rumors that Barry Keoghan is playing a version of the Joker character that could be Batman’s next supervillain. Keoghan already plays another comic book character in Marvel’s The Eternals, that of Druig.

Who is Matt Reeves, the director of The Batman?

Matt Reeves has taken the helm of this upcoming version of Batman. The director was first known for his film The Coffin Bearer, in which Gwyneth Paltrow played the lead female role, but it was in 2008 that he gained international fame with his directing of Cloverfield, according to an idea by J.J Abrams, also a producer. His most acclaimed films remain the sequels to Planet of the Apes: The Confrontation and Planet of the Apes: Supremacy. Reeves is very action-oriented but he is also known for integrating dramatic elements with subtlety and paying particular attention to the script and character development. According to his statements, The Batman will be a radically different version and especially more frightening than the old Batman.

Robert Pattinson’s controversial choice

Fans of Comics have been very critical of Reeves’ choice of Robert Pattinson to play this new version of Batman. Not only was the actor still associated with his role as Edward in Twilight, but he was also the victim of a rumor that he could not acquire the muscle mass needed to play Batman. Finally, Matt Reeves’ statement that his Batman is not a true hero has annoyed fans a lot. However, Robert Pattinson had already moved away from the American saga to turn more to independent auteur cinema, delivering excellent performances in The Lighthouse, Good Times, or Cosmopolis. Matt Reeves had decided to give him the role of the bat precisely to give a darker look to the story, in accordance with the new style of the actor (and finally, Robert Pattinson gained muscle very quickly).

Will there be a connection to other DC movies?

At this time, the film is not related to any other DC Comics movie. By integrating this Batman, DC would count with three different universes:

  • Universe 1: Man of Steel, Batman vs Superman, Aquaman, Shazam Suicide Squad, Birds of Prey.
  • Universe 2: Joker (Todd Phillips)
  • Universe 3: Batman (Matt Reeves)
