    Batman will become a teen vampire heartthrob

    Robert Pattinson in talks to play ‘The Batman’ for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros.

    I've never seen any of the Twilight movies, despite the Significant Other being a fan. How good are they?

    I'd label the Twilight movies as "forgettable", but I wouldn't judge Pattinson's ability to pull off Batman based on them either. He's had many years to mature as an actor so I'd give him a fair shot. If the director thinks he's good for the role, maybe he is.

    Also even he admitted to doing Twilight for the money.

    I will admit he is cute enough to play Bruce Wayne.

    I didn't watch those movies, so don't know if he is a good pick or not, but I can't read this thread and not remember this comic. Tee hee.

    Edit: Time flies when you are old, and I was curious if he was "old enough" now, or if he still looked like a moody teenager.

    I think he could probably do it. Gloomy brooding is like half of Batman's personality, and the other half is punching things.

    Pattinson has done a lot of solid indie work since he got done with Twilight, he's a great actor. Just look at movies like Good Time he's done. Fingers crossed this has a good script.

    And the primary antagonists are supposed to be Penguin and Catwoman.

    Why not just re-release Michael Keaton's Batman Returns?

    I don't get it.

    Why are they getting rid of affleck?

    What is the fucking deal with DC/WB and their superheroes? They can't pull off a decent franchise for shit. Why the fuck do they keep rebooting their actors?

    I don't fucking understand this shit. They've gone through more Bruces than Bonds at this point.

    Batman Returns was honestly pretty good, From there onwards until Dark Knight however those were total crap. Pretty much the whole live action period between Burton and Nolan was shit.

    As for why DC is always rebooting, Now you know why Marvel Studios built a whole big road map ahead of time and signed the contracts accordingly. This is why the MCU is now the most valuable movie franchise, Its made more than Star Wars and Bond afaik(box office, I Imagine if you include Merch than Star Wars is till untouchable). They made sure to have long term continuity.

    It sounds like he chose to walk away:

    Ben Affleck Explains Why He’s Done Playing Batman: ‘I Couldn’t Crack It’

    Granted, though he says he "just couldn't come up with a version," that doesn't necessarily mean he and the screenwriter didn't have any ideas -- it could mean that he simply couldn't concoct a story that was also palatable to the studio, and then gave up rather than keep fighting The Man. Or we could take it at face value, that he just couldn't figure out a story that worked for him.

    Either way, ultimately it seems like it was his choice to move on.
