Oh thank god, Matt Reeves confirms The Batman won't be an origin story

Oh thank god, Matt Reeves confirms The Batman won't be an origin story

We’ve been getting little bits of information here and there for some time on the next big-screen installment of the caped crusader, Matt Reeves’ The Batman. And while we’ve all had a good time making our little jokes about

his pointy new outfit and that sexy, sexy Batmobile , the most important issue of all has now been put to rest: It’s not going to be another damn origin story.

In a new...

The Batman director Matt Reeves reveals sexy new Batmobile for his sexy new Batman

The Batman director Matt Reeves reveals sexy new Batmobile for his sexy new Batman

With Robert Pattinson headlining a cast that includes Zoe Kravitz and Colin Farrell, The Batman certainly seems like a Dark Knight movie for the Horny Era. That assumption was pretty much confirmed when director Matt Reeves

revealed the first look at Pattinson in costume as the Caped Crusader via a short video that gave off some real David Cronenberg vibes—which can largely be attributed to...

New Batman extremely pointy

New Batman extremely pointy

Batman has always been a pointy character. Even disregarding the work of certain artists—most notably Kelley Jones in the 1990s—who have drawn the Caped Crusader with ears more akin to a rabbit’s than that of a bat, he’s still a guy who spends most of his nights firing grappling guns, flapping his big ol’ pointy cape, and hitting various criminals with his extremely sharp (and personally...

Wait, did the new Batman bolt the gun that killed his parents to his Batsuit's chest?

Wait, did the new Batman bolt the gun that killed his parents to his Batsuit's chest?

The Batman director Matt Reeves showed off the first look at the new Batsuit—and, to a lesser extent, the new Batman—

earlier this afternoon , reassuring anyone who was worried about it that Robert Pattinson does, indeed, possess a chin. The suit itself came under significantly more scrutiny, as it typically does, with fans noting its similarities both to the one favored by the Dark Knight in...

The Batman begins as director Matt Reeves releases first footage of Robert Pattinson's Dark Knight

The Batman begins as director Matt Reeves releases first footage of Robert Pattinson's Dark Knight

It’s a big day in pop culture news, the bigness of which is only slightly lessened by the fact that this is something that has already happened a few times in the last couple decades, but either way it’s always exciting when we get our first look at a new Batman. It immediately became a meme when Zack Snyder released

the first look at Ben Affleck’s sad Batman , and people in the early 2000s...

Sorry, Glasgow: You're apparently gloomy enough to be the new stand-in for Gotham City

Sorry, Glasgow: You're apparently gloomy enough to be the new stand-in for Gotham City

Things have apparently taken a depressing turn in Scotland, because Daily Record (via Collider) is reporting that Glasgow is going to be the new stand-in for Gotham City when Matt Reeves makes The Batman. That’s a pretty mean shot at the nice people of Glasgow, since Gotham is a famously giant crap-hole of a town, full of evil clowns, corrupt nightclub owners that happen to look like birds,...

Colin Farrell in talks to play The Batman's handsome new Penguin, with Andy Serkis as Alfred

Colin Farrell in talks to play The Batman's handsome new Penguin, with Andy Serkis as Alfred

According to Deadline, Colin Farrell is in talks to join the cast of Matt Reeves’ The Batman as stocky, bird-like nightclub owner/organized crime boss Oswald Cobblepot—a.k.a. The Penguin. This would be, let’s say, a divergence from traditional depictions of The Penguin, the most famous of which is Danny DeVito’s fish-eating, sewer-dwelling maniac from Batman Returns, so this might be...

Paul Dano to play The Riddler in The Batman

Paul Dano to play The Riddler in The Batman

Forget about Jonah Hill , Robert Pattinson’s caped crusader is going to have another familiar famous guy to beat up in Matt Reeves’ The Batman. According to Variety, Paul Dano has been cast as The Riddler, foreshadowing what will hopefully be a very, very, very different take on the character from what Jim Carrey did in Batman Forever. Honestly, the green bodysuit is fine, we just never need...

Robert Pattinson expected way more blowback from his Batman casting

Robert Pattinson opened up for the first time about his

casting as the Caped Crusader in Matt Reeves’ upcoming The Batman, revealing that, ope, people found out about it way too soon. In fact, the conflicting reports saying that Nicholas Hoult was also up for the role were absolutely correct. “When that thing leaked, I was fucking furious,” Pattinson told Variety in a new cover story....

Robert Pattinson is now Batman, which we swear is not a Twilight joke

Robert Pattinson is now Batman, which we swear is not a Twilight joke

Robert Pattinson has spent the last several years shedding the shadow of (semi-) nocturnal predators, moving away from his career-making role in the Twilight movies—a franchise he reportedly viewed with a not-inconsiderable amount of eye-rolling amusement, if not outright disdain—in favor of more challenging films like last year’s

Good Time  and Claire Denis’ recent High Life . (And also that...

Ben Affleck finally achieves lifelong dream of not having to play Batman anymore 

Ben Affleck finally achieves lifelong dream of not having to play Batman anymore 

Finally, after years of

rumors , denials , and additional rumors that seemed to corroborate the initial rumors, it looks like Ben Affleck is hanging up Batman’s cape and cowl. We don’t know if the supervillain Bane escaped from a prison in Santa Prisca and broke his back, or if the loss of one of his Robins forced Affleck to give up his crimefighting career, but we do know that he’s been...

The Batman director Matt Reeves still out here acting like The Batman is actually going to happen

News today from the “Wait, really?” department:

War For The Planet Of The Apes director Matt Reeves is still out here acting like his standalone Batman movie, The Batman, is something that will ever actually exist. Reeves gave an interview to The Hollywood Reporter this week in support of said delusion, vaguely discussing the hypothetical movie’s hypothetical rogues gallery—noting that, “You...

It's Rumor Time: Is Matt Reeves going back to Year One for his Batman movie? 

We haven’t heard anything about Matt Reeves’ The Batman since last year, when the War For The Planet Of The Apes director

tried to clarify whether or not his movie would be connected to Batman V Superman and Justice League (and also when Ben Affleck once again teased that he doesn’t really want to play Batman anymore ). Supposedly, though, things are starting to pick up speed on the...

Matt Reeves wants to add some Hitchcock to The Batman

Matt Reeves wants to add some Hitchcock to The Batman

Back in February, after a brief period of chaos, Matt Reeves took over the role of directing The Batman from a world-weary Ben Affleck, who decided just to star in the project. With the critical success of Wonder Woman, the pressure’s on for Reeves to deliver. And in a new interview with CNET, the War For The Planet Of The Apes director is setting expectations high, referencing none other...

Joe Manganiello isn’t so sure about his role in The Batman anymore

Joe Manganiello isn’t so sure about his role in The Batman anymore

Joe Manganiello has shouldered the burden of propping up The Batman, whose troubled production has already seen the replacement of its director and the retention of its ambivalent star. The Magic Mike XXL star pooh-poohed the press’ penchant for kicking up a fuss over negligible things like the film’s lead, Ben Affleck, saying he was already sick of the project before filming gets underway....

It’s Rumor Time: Ben Affleck wants to stop being Batman

For decades, people have dreamed of being Batman. But Ben Affleck has been there, done that, and apparently wants no more of it. After taking the public on an emotional roller coaster, Affleck dropped out of directing the movie that will focus on his version of the Caped Crusader. Now, according to John Campea of Collider Movie Talk, he would like to be rid of the cowl entirely. Campea...
