Warner Bros. executives love The Batman, calling Robert Pattinson the best Dark Knight since Michael Keaton.
Online gossip targeted Matt Reeves’ The Batman for months since production began in London in January 2020.
The pandemic hit filming hard.
By March, they had to shut it down.
There were false stories of Robert Pattinson having a quickie in the Batmobile with co-star Zoë Kravitz, for example.
One by one, the fake news spread like wildfire.
Generally, the Star Wars franchise is a magnet for such bogus information.
However, Pattinson’s casting polarized fans.
There are vocal detractors who still see Pattinson as the emo vampire from the Twilight franchise.
Any bad intel on him, especially made up by, must be ad-fueled click-bait. There’s money in negativity, especially on YouTube.
Since Geekosity debuted as a website last August, I’ve avoided The Batman rumors.
Warner Bros. Feels Robert Pattinson Is Best Batman Since Michael Keaton
Therefore, debunking them would’ve been exhausting and pointless.
Nevertheless, I will acknowledge this one because I uncovered new information from digging under rocks.
First of all, Warner Bros. is ecstatic over The Batman.
Insiders revealed they compared what they’ve seen to Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight trilogy in terms of its intensity and adult nature.
Secondly, executives praised Pattinson’s take on Batman; they feel his performance rivals Michael Keaton’s in his two movies.
On May 26, we reported that Warner Bros. signed Pattinson to a new first-look production deal.
A source added that:
They feel Pattinson will be more popular than Ben Affleck as Batman.
Nevertheless, Warner Bros. is well aware of the skepticism surrounding Pattinson as Batman.
The abundance of rage-stoking chatter unveils the uncertain feelings out there towards him.
To some extent, it’s understandable.
The Twilight franchise cast a long shadow, and to hardcore Batman fans, a worrisome one.
However, this happened to Keaton as well.
People still saw him as the funny man in 1983’s now-forgotten Mr. Mom.
The Internet initially bombed Affleck with his share of dismissive memes, too.
