Warner Bros. and DC Comics have been in the news a lot lately with the merger with Discovery now complete, and it doesn’t look like that’s going to stop anytime soon. Newly appointed CEO David Zaslav has canceled films like Batgirl and The Wonderful Twins for fiscal and budgetary reasons. Zaslav is looking for a Kevin Feige-like executive to lead DC Films with a ten-year plan, but has yet to find someone up to the task. The studio has also bet everything on The Batman director Matt Reeves by signing him to an overall deal. Reeves has many projects in development like a Penguin series, a series centered on Arkham Asylum, and even a sequel to The Batman. Fans have an idea of what they want to see in the sequel, and one of those things is Caped Crusader’s sidekick, Robin. An artist thinks The Adam Project star Walker Scobell would be a perfect fit for the role.
An artist on Instagram who goes by the handle of @Clements.Ink has created some cool fan art that imagines what Scobell might look like as Robin for a while. The Batman after. The actor wears the classic Boy Wonder suit and it looks great on him. Hopefully someone spots this fan art and thinks it might actually do the role justice. You can check out the fan art below!
Pattinson looks great in the cape and cowl he wore in the film, but it turns out that one of his personality traits actually helped him in the role. The actor is well known for his social awkwardness in the press and it seems it really helped him during filming The Batman. Reeves previously made an appearance on KCRW where he revealed exactly how Pattinson’s physical clumsiness helped him portray the Dark Knight.
“Not only is that a facet, obviously, of who he is, because obviously that’s partly him, but it’s also something he’s in control of,” Reeves told the Podcast. “One of the things that I found so fascinating about working with him is that he works in a way that’s almost like a methodical actor. And yet you can see that he has great access to his emotions and getting into a state. But he also has incredible control of his instrument, the way he moves. It’s all very technical, and it’s very intentional. So I could say, I need it to be warmer, and he could access it very easily. [And I could say] but me too, because of that hood and the way the light hits your eye, I need you to lean a little more to your left, otherwise I won’t see your eye. And he could do both of those things at the same time.”
“He had a tremendous ability to access his emotions, but also to control his movements, so it all comes from a very internal place. But he has a tremendous ease with himself physically. He’s just very able to access to all of that stuff, but also weirdly at the same time, while he can be out of control, he can also be incredibly in control in terms of calibrating his voice, the way he leans, where he stands .I think the choices he makes are on some level, very conscious as well, although I know some of them must be unconscious because it’s coming from a very instinctive place.” The Batman director added.
Directed by Matt Reeves, The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Zoë Kravitz as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Paul Dano as Edward Nashton/the Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as GCPD’s James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gotham DA Gil Colson, Jayme Lawson as mayoral candidate Bella Reál, Andy Serkis as Alfred, and Colin Farrell as Oswald “Penguin” Cobblepot. The film is streaming on HBO Max now!
