Robert Pattinson is clearing his schedule to play Bruce Wayne aka Batman due to conflicting schedules with other movies he’s planning to play in. It was reported a couple of weeks ago that DC Comics and Warner Brothers were nearing a deal to secure the Twilight actors services for Matt Reeves adaptation of the caped crusader and while that’s still happening, some adjustments have been made.
Pattinson was supposed to star in Joana Hogg’s highly-anticipated sequel to ‘The Souvenir’ but now he’s dropped out of that film to help be free for the production of the first movie of reportedly three that Matt Reeves is planning. According to IndieWire, Hogg’s film was conflicting with another film Pattinson was set to star in, Christopher Nolan’s mysterious ‘Tenet’ film.
“Despite Rob’s strong desire to do the film, scheduling proved impossible but he very much looks forward to working with Joanna on something down the line,” Pattinson’s team told IndieWire.
After the Nolan film, Pattinson will shift his attention to playing one of the most iconic superheroes ever. His acting talents shouldn’t be discredited, although most know him for his cheesy lines in ‘Twilight’, Pattinson has quietly made himself a career after the teen romance trilogy.
Many are still skeptical about him playing the Gotham knight but lets’ not judge a book by its cover. Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves and his team will start pre-production for the film later this summer and Pattinson is set to join them later on. Big things happening in the DC universe.
