Willem Dafoe Says ‘Lighthouse’ Co-Star Robert Pattinson Has the Perfect Chin to Play Batman

Warner Bros. has not officially announced Robert Pattinson as the new Batman, but the beloved “High Life” actor is currently the frontrunner to take over the role made famous on the big screen by Michael Keaton and Christian Bale. As previously reported, Pattinson is entering final talks to sign on as the lead in Matt Reeves’ upcoming 2021 tentpole “The Batman.” The role would give Pattinson the biggest role of his career and a second major upcoming studio gig after Christopher Nolan’s “Tenet.”

Pattinson was in attendance at the Cannes Film Festival this week to premiere his new movie, “The Lighthouse.” The Robert Eggers-directed psychodrama debuted in Directors’ Fortnight to critical acclaim, with Pattinson and co-star Willem Dafoe earning instant Oscar buzz for their performances. Pattinson deflected all Batman questions, telling IndieWire’s awards editor Anne Thompson with a smile, “I am only answering questions about ‘The Lighthouse.’”

Fantastic Four Star Rumored To Play Scarecrow In The Batman

It seems Robert Pattinson’s Dark Knight – assuming the actor passes Warner Bros.’ rigorous casting process – will have his work cut out for him in Matt ReevesThe Batman, as word has it that the movie will see the hero come up against six of the most dangerous foes in his rogues gallery. So far, we know that Penguin, Catwoman and likely the Riddler will be up to something nefarious in Gotham City. But what about the other three villains?

Well, The Byo Show YouTube Channel may have revealed two more foes for the Bat to face. According to them, they were informed Pattison was the top choice back in January and now they’re sharing the rest of the info they heard at the time. This includes that Bane and Scarecrow could also appear in The Batman. And they might just know who’s playing them, too.

Willem Dafoe on His New Films ‘The Lighthouse’ and ‘Tommaso,’ Robert Pattinson as Batman
Willem Dafoe has spent the last two awards seasons on the campaign trail. The actor earned back-to-back Oscar nominations for his work in 2017’s “The Florida Project” and for last year’s “At Eternity’s Gate.”

And if the critical reaction to “The Lighthouse” is any indication, he’ll be back on it soon.

The Lighthouse” is director Robert Eggers’ black-and-white follow-up to his 2015 debut “The Witch.” Dafoe and Robert Pattinson star as 1890s lighthouse keepers who slowly spiral into insanity as they tend to a lighthouse on a slab of rock in the middle of a brutal New England storm.

Oscar buzz began almost immediately after the movie premiered at the Cannes Film Festival to ecstatic reviews for both Dafoe and Pattinson. Eggers is being hailed as the next big talent to look out for. “That’s good. I’ll take that,” Dafoe says when asked shortly after the premiere about the accolades.

Luke Cage Star Rumored To Be Playing Bane In The Batman

Robert Pattinson was confirmed to be the top choice for the new Dark Knight last week, and since then, more casting reports concerning Matt ReevesThe Batman have appeared. For instance, Josh Gad and Nicholas Hoult are apparently vying for the role of the Penguin, while Vanessa Hudgens could be playing Catwoman.

Christopher Nolan's New Movie Gets a Title, Main Cast Announced
Christopher Nolan's next movie is officially titled Tenet. The project is still being kept tightly under wraps, but some new cast additions have also been announced.

The film also stars Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, Dimple Kapadia, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Cl&#233mence Po&#233sy, with Michael Caine and Kenneth Branagh.

Bane And Scarecrow May Face Robert Pattinson’s Dark Knight In The Batman

As well as the news that Robert Pattinson is the first choice for the lead role, last week brought us other intriguing details on Matt ReevesThe Batman. Namely, that the Dark Knight will be facing off against not one or two, but six of his deadliest enemies in the movie. The Penguin and Catwoman are reportedly at the top of the pack, with We Got This Covered hearing that the Riddler will be the tertiary antagonist.

The Byo Show YouTube Channel is now claiming to add another two names to that list, though. The show says they were informed Pattison was going to play Batsy back in January, and given that this has now been proven right, they’ve decided to share what other intel about the film they heard at the time. This includes that Bane and Scarecrow will be part of The Batman‘s six-strong rogues gallery of villains.

Vanessa Hudgens Rumored To Be Playing Catwoman In The Batman

Robert Pattinson was revealed to be Warner Bros.’ top choice for the new Caped Crusader last week and now, fresh rumors are speculating who could fill out the rest of the cast of director Matt ReevesThe Batman. Including who may be the Selina Kyle to Pattinson’s Bruce Wayne.

The Byo Show YouTube channel is claiming that they were informed the former Twilight star was set to don the cape and cowl next back in January. Given that this has now turned out to be the case, they’ve decided to share the other casting intel they heard at the time, which includes that the studio’s top pick for Catwoman is Vanessa Hudgens.

Like Pattinson, Hudgens got her big break in a franchise that, while popular with teen viewers, isn’t known for being a critical darling (to put it nicely): High School Musical. Since then, however,

Robert Pattinson Says He Absolutely Cannot Talk About Batman

Ever since rumors started circulating that Robert Pattinson was being eyed for the title role in Matt ReevesThe Batman, the former Twilight star has been the talk of the town. But not necessarily in a good way. While there has been some support for the 33-year-old actor, there’s also a petition on Change.org to replace him with Call Me By Your Name lead Armie Hammer.

With all that buzz flying around, Pattinson seems to be the only one who doesn’t want to – or perhaps isn’t allowed to – discuss it. Speaking with Gala Magazine, he quickly shut down the question that’s on most every Dark Knight fan’s mind:

Gala: What can you tell us about being chosen to be the next Batman?

R.P.: I’m sorry, but I absolutely can’t talk about that.

Here’s How Sebastian Stan Could Look As The Riddler In The Batman

If there’s one film we desperately want to know more about, it’s definitely The Batman. When it comes to the DC Extended Universe, Warner Bros. has made some missteps with the Caped Crusader in the past, but we’re keen to see where Matt Reeves (of Cloverfield and War for the Planet of the Apes fame) takes the franchise. Of course, while the film’s creative team has largely been reported on in the past, the cast is an entirely different can of worms.

Last week, independent articles from both The Hollywood Reporter and Variety indicated that Twilight star Robert Pattinson would be donning the cowl; a reveal which was shortly followed by a requisite “freak out” on social media, and a predictable petition to undo recent casting decisions. Aside from news regarding Pattinson though, plenty of other A-listers have thrown their hat into the ring when it

Why We Think Robert Pattinson Will Thrive as The Batman

It’s not a done deal yet but as Justin Kroll from Variety puts it Robert Pattinson is next in line, at the moment, to play the Batman in the upcoming 2021 movie. It seems strange to say that he would thrive in this role since for so long he’s been associated with the Twilight films and has been more or less the kind of actor that doesn’t seem to suit the part of Bruce Wayne or Batman. He’s not quite dark enough though he can brood and he can seem kind of moody at times, and he certainly doesn’t seem

The Batman Hopefuls Rumored to Endure Intense Casting Process

The Batman Hopefuls Rumored to Endure Intense Casting Process
Robert Pattinson, or whoever it ends up being, is being put through a very rigorous and detailed casting process in order to land the lead role in The Batman. This project has been in the works for several years now, originally with Ben Affleck attached to direct and star in it. Now, Matt Reeves (War for the Planet of the Apes) is on board to write and direct, with the search on for a new actor to assume cape and cowl duties. And, apparently, Warner Bros. is taking this process rather seriously, as one might expect.

Last week, we got word that former Twilight star Robert Pattinson was in talks to be our new Batman, with many outlets making it seem like it was a done deal. As it turns out, that's not the case, as Tolkien and Dark Phoenix star Nicholas Hoult is also in the running, with other

Robert Pattinson Won’t Confirm If He’ll Be The Next Batman

Last week the Internet was set ablaze by the news that Robert Pattinson may be donning the cowl in Matt ReevesThe Batman. For every person championing the young actor as the next Caped Crusader, there’s another touting that the star’s involvement in the Twilight franchise should permanently bar him from ever taking on the role.

While the studio hasn’t commented on the matter one way or another just yet, numerous news outlets were quick to point out that Pattinson’s deal with Warner Bros. hasn’t been finalized, and it seems like the actor is doing everything in his power to not jeopardize the arrangement.

While speaking at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this week, reporters directly asked The Lighthouse star about his involvement in The Batman, but Pattinson’s lips were sealed:

“I am only answering questions about The Lighthouse,” he said.

Josh Gad Taunts Robert Pattinson's The Batman, Teasing Penguin Yet Again

Josh Gad Taunts Robert Pattinson's The Batman, Teasing Penguin Yet Again
Josh Gad is continuing to tease a possible role in Matt Reeves' The Batman. The actor has been not-so-subtly campaigning to play the villainous Oswald Cobblepot, aka The Penguin for a few years now. DC fans seem to be on board with the actor's crusade, but it's not clear just who will be taking on the role. The same can be said for Robert Pattinson, who is heavily rumored to be the studio's number one choice to take on the franchise.

Eh. I could take him. https://t.co/kCg3KbjM4V

— Josh Gad (@joshgad) May 17, 2019

When it was announced last week that Robert Pattinson is allegedly going to be the lead in The Batman, Josh Gad retweeted the story and simply said, "Eh. I could take him." DC fans were quick to jump on the tweet, but like most times when Gad teases his involvement, he doesn't follow up on questions.

WB’s Putting Robert Pattinson Through Brutal Casting Process For Batman

The internet exploded last Thursday when it was reported that Robin Pattinson had been cast as the Dark Knight. The truth then came out that, while the former Twilight star was Matt Reeves’ top pick for The Batman, the actor isn’t locked down for the iconic role just yet. Further details have since surfaced though that clarify just how much care Warner Bros. is taking over finding their new Dark Knight.

The Hollywood Reporter writes that the casting process is still very much underway and the studio is currently in the middle of a rigorous vetting system that includes “screen tests, costume tests, readings, and meetings,” though specific details are not yet available. If Pattinson’s currently working his way through this obstacle course of auditions though, no wonder he hasn’t officially signed up for the part yet.

THR also reiterates that the reason for this intense process

Josh Gad Says He Could Take On Robert Pattinson’s Batman As The Penguin

Last week brought the news that Robert Pattinson is Warner Bros.’ top choice for the next Caped Crusader, though subsequent reports have clarified that he’s not locked in just yet for Matt ReevesThe Batman. One prospective foe for the Dark Knight is already sizing up the former Twilight star though and thinks he can take him.

Josh Gad has long been campaigning on social media to play the part of the Penguin in The Batman and, following Pattinson’s supposed casting, he returned to the topic on Twitter to comment on the situation. The Frozen actor shared Variety’s write-up of the story and added the caption: “Eh, I could take him.”

Gad’s interest in bringing Oswald Cobblepot to life has gone on for a couple of years now and, luckily for him, there’s a very real chance he could end up portraying the iconic villain.
