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...

Prepare your stomachs for a "raw," "not sanitized" Batman next year

Prepare your stomachs for a "raw," "not sanitized" Batman next year

Striking like a bad case of salmonella—moving swiftly and decisively through the gastrointestinal tract of crime—Robert Pattinson’s The Batman is set to arrive in theaters next summer. But when the R-Pats-Man-Bat does finally swing through Gotham, it won’t be your daddy’s Batman doing it, all safe and clean and properly rated for human consumption by the FDA. No, we have it on good authority...

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,...

The Batman casts John Turturro as crime boss Carmine Falcone

The Batman casts John Turturro as crime boss Carmine Falcone

The cast of Matt Reeves’ The Batman is shaping up to be one of the most interesting ensembles we’ve seen in a while, with the recent additions of Paul Dano as The Riddler, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Colin Farrell as Penguin (somehow), and, as we’ve examined thoroughly, Robert Pattinson as Batty himself. Next up: John Turturro will have his turn as crime boss Carmine Falcone. Tom Wilkinson...

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...

Jeffrey Wright to shine a great big flashlight as The Batman's Commissioner Gordon

Jeffrey Wright to shine a great big flashlight as The Batman's Commissioner Gordon

There are a lot of adjectives you could use for the casting process of Matt Reeves’ new superhero movie, The Batman. “Intriguing.” “Uniformly excellent.” “Entirely Jonah-Hill free .” We can now add “containing Jeffrey Wright” to that descriptive barrage, as Reeves confirmed on Twitter tonight that the Westworld star has signed on to play the latest incarnation of put-upon Gotham cop Jim...

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...

Jonah Hill declines opportunity to get the crap kicked out of him by The Batman

Jonah Hill declines opportunity to get the crap kicked out of him by The Batman

Politely declining the opportunity to get viciously suplexed by a brooding Robert Pattinson—which honestly sounds like a clipping from our personal vision boards, but to each their own—Jonah Hill has apparently turned down an offered role on Matt Reeves’s upcoming The Batman. Hill was reportedly in talks to appear as either classic Batman villains Riddler or Penguin, either one of whom we...

Jonah Hill and Jeffrey Wright are in talks for Matt Reeves' The Batman

Jonah Hill and Jeffrey Wright are in talks for Matt Reeves' The Batman

It sounds like Warner Bros. has just activated the “Jonah Hill And Jeffrey Wright Signal” that sits atop the Gotham City Police Department, because both of them are now in talks to take on major roles in director Matt Reeves’ The Batman. This is the one starring Robert Pattinson as the Dark Knight, and though specific details have been slim, we’ve been hearing for years that this movie would...

Sorry, 'shippers: Robert Pattinson's Batman will never meet Joaquin Phoenix's Joker

Sorry, 'shippers: Robert Pattinson's Batman will never meet Joaquin Phoenix's Joker

Indicating that Warner Bros. and DC may have actually learned a lesson from its desperate need to compete with Marvel Studios by forcing together a cinematic universe out of movies that didn’t necessarily deserve one, Joker director Todd Phillips ha declared that Joaquin Phoenix’s Clown Prince Of Crime will “definitely not” meet the new Robert Pattinson Batman in some future crossover movie....

On The Late Show, Aubrey Plaza talks playing her first mom, really wanting to be Catwoman

In the clip shown on Friday’s Late Show, Plaza’s harried horror movie mom deals with her young son’s adamant belief that his...

R-Bats to allegedly face off against Catwoman and Penguin in The Batman

R-Bats to allegedly face off against Catwoman and Penguin in The Batman

Information continues to trickle out this week about Matt Reeves’ upcoming film The Batman, which is not only bound and determined to exist despite the Bat-agnosticism of Ben Affleck and large swathes of the movie-going public, but which recently made headlines by casting (or coming close to casting, depending on who you listen to) Robert Pattinson in the role of the Batted Man himself. And...

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 directortried 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...

Ben Affleck goes rumor-smashing, calls Batman “the greatest fucking part in the world”

Indirectly referencing rumors that have continued to plague his time as the Dark Knight—including sources from as recently as yesterday, which suggested that Warner Bros. was looking for a way to gracefully replace him in the role—Ben Affleck doubled down on his love for Batman at today’s Warner Bros. panel at Comic-Con. According to Coming Soon, Affleck called his role as Bruce Wayne and his...

It’s Rumor Time: Is Warner Bros. trying to retire Ben Affleck’s Batman?

Given that it’s a team-up between one of the world’s most popular actors, and one of its most beloved superheroes, Warner Bros.’ Ben Affleck/Batman sub-franchise has gotten off to a shockingly rocky start. Although Affleck seemed comfortable enough in the part in Batman V. Superman—and even agreed to some light cameo duty in Suicide Squad—trouble has continued to plague the standalone film...
