Although it has not been confirmed, it seems Robert Pattinson is at least playing Batman in Matt Reeves upcoming Batman movie, according to recent reports. Pattinson has not commented on any Batman related, but his co-star in Robert Egger directed The lighthouse had a thing or two to say about Pattinson and his possible new role, including the only thing you absolutely must have if you are playing Dark Knight on the big screen, and it's a strong chin.
"He has a strong chin," Dafoe told Variety's The Big Ticket podcast. "It's part of it. Can you imagine someone with a weak chin who has ever played Batman? I don't think so."
If Pattinson were to get the role, he would join a legacy that includes Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney, Christian Bale and most recently Ben Affleck, although reports have also stated Nicholas Hoult are also underway.
Matt Reeves will change things from the previous interpretations, go to a more noir style film that focuses on Batman's detective subjects instead of his gadgets or brawn. It has been touched here and there in previous films, but it has never been the focus. Reeves hopes to really have his movie Batman live up to the world's largest investigator title.
Dafoe also gave some insight into how Pattinson works at sets, as the two actors have different styles that perfectly match their characters in The Light . Dafoe prefers repetitions, while Pattinson did not want too much preparation since his character was more mysterious and some with few words.
"We are different, and the truth is, because our methods were different, they kind of mirrored the differences in the characters," said Dafoe. "If that were a problem, I'm sure Rob Eggers would have corrected it. But actually he liked the excitement and the difference. "
Dafoe added that he thinks Pattinson is a" good guy "and explained that there was no" personal enmity, [but] we did not have as much contact as to hang out or something. It wasn't a method thing. We worked hard, and it was miserable weather, so when you're free, you're looking for coverage. "
Fans Can See Dafoe and Pattinson in The Lighthouse Now The Batman does not have the official release date.
