The film will be starring Robert Pattinson as the Batman and yes the makers will also be introducing us to a catwoman which will be layed by Zoe Kravtiz whereas commissioner Gordon will be played by Jeffrey Wright.

Last time we saw the Riddler in a Batman film was back in 1995 which was played by Jim Carrey in the film Batman: Forever. It was being said that Jonah Hill was on the list to play the antagonist however Paul Dano has been chosen now.

Recently Robert Pattinson spoke about the film saying “I really like Matt Revees. The upcoming Batman film is something from the comics that hasn’t been explored yet. It’s kind of crazy shoes to fill. It’s interesting the different directions you can take with it, When you look at the different tones of those movies and tv shows, you realise you can do quite a lot with it.”

forget Pattinson was a batman fan since childhood and he had revealed that he grew up watching Batman. The actor got to know about this news when he on the sets of Christopher Nolan’s upcoming film Tenet.

Robert Pattinson rose to fame when he was first seen in the Harry Potter film ‘Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire’ in which he played the role of Cedric Diggory and after that he was seen in the famous Twilight series as the Vampire Edward Cullen.
