Robert Pattinson’s Batman isn’t crossing over with Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker in the DC universe, but that doesn’t mean The Batman can’t take a page from Joker‘s gritty R-rated book. Besides, this does look pretty awesome.
Digital artist Mizuri offered fans an idea of what Robert Pattinson could look like if Matt Reeves’ Batman movie is inspired by Joker. As the artist captioned the look…
I love the look. I don’t know that The Batman would need to be R-rated to be gritty and mature and everything this fan and more are hoping to see. The rating doesn’t really make a movie, but I suppose it depends on how “dark” Matt Reeves and DC want Batman to be. There’s dark and there’s Joker dark.
Batman in detective mode. I think this look could pair nicely with that, no? There’s no one correct opinion to have about Batman, Robert Pattinson as Batman, Matt Reeves’ plans for Batman, or how Batman should look in this movie.
Digital artist BossLogic already gave fans a look at his idea of Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne, but we’re waiting to see what Matt Reeves and his team come up with. So far, we just know that trying on the Batsuit made Pattinson feel powerful — but it was also rather humbling, since it required several people to squeeze him into it.
The Batman should start filming fairly soon. It is currently scheduled for release June 25, 2021, very closely followed by James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad on August 6 of that year.
