The Batman is definitely a movie that’s happening. There’s no stopping it at this point. We’re going to get a new Batman movie. There’s no sign of Robin, yet, but check out this cool new Batmobile. Director Matt Reeves shared this pic and others on his Twitter yesterday. I like the grounded, realistic, muscle car look.
Reeves is definitely really good at building hype for his movie. We’ve seen the Batsuit, now the Batmobile, so surely he’s next going to tease the Robinsuit…right? Right?!
The Batman has started filming. The movie with Robert Pattinson in the lead role and a whole bunch of villains is going to happen. I’m all for it! I like a good Batman movie. And director Matt Reeves gave us our first look at the new Batsuit last night.
I don’t care for it.
It looks almost exactly like every other modern Batman costume. It’s all hard, thick armor and normal human eyes. I’m not saying I need him to be wearing spandex or anything, but maybe a happy middle ground? Maybe something new and creative?
Ah well, life is what it is.
No word on Robin as of yet…
I have been trying to keep up with casting news for the new Batman movie coming out in a couple of years. I’ve liked most of it, like Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman and Robert Pattinson as Batman. But casting news has been coming so fast and loose that I’ve fallen way behind. We’ve got Jeffrey Wright confirmed as Commissioner Gordon. Andy Serkis as Alfred. And rumors of Colin Farrell as Penguin and Aaron Eckhart as Two-Face! It’s madness!
The newest news is actor Jayme Lawson in an unnamed role.
Apparently she’s a brand new college grad and this is her first Hollywood role. That’s some pretty solid career advancement already. Good for her!
Second, what role does she have? Everybody is guessing it’s Barbara Gordon, considering we’ve now got a black Commissioner Gordon. Makes sense. It also makes sense in that the film might be really coy with Batman’s allies. It can have all the villains it wants, but Batman having allies and sidekicks makes for an entirely different movie, so they might want to keep Batgirl news secret. Of course, she could just be Barbara and not yet Batgirl.
All of this is to say we might not know Dick Grayson has been cast when he’s cast! I want Robin news!
