The producing and acting deal signed by Robert Pattinson with Warner Bros confirms that he will work on future Warner Bros projects. This includes the American production studio New Line Cinema, most known for producing and distributing the Lord of The Rings trilogy.
The deal does not necessarily mean that these upcoming projects are fully related to DC Comics, which can come as a bit of a bummer for fans expecting an announcement for a sequel to The Batman.
Relating to the news, Robert Pattinson stated the following:
I’m thrilled to be working with them to discover the most exciting new voices in film and television and help bring their visions to life. I’ve loved working with the studio over the years and have so much respect for their dedication, their willingness to take chances and their desire to push the envelope creatively.
Playing the lead role on Matt Reeves’ The Batman, Pattinson will portray a darker and angrier Batman that doesn’t hold back when it comes to crime-fighting, as can be seen in the following trailer.
One other interesting aspect of this new Batman iteration is that the villain of the film. The Riddler, played by Paul Dano, will follow similar guidelines as the protagonist, promising fans a twisted and darker serial killer.
The Batman is expected to release on March 4, 2022.
