    Robert Pattinson to Play The Batman in Matt Reeves’ Film!

    this is actually a great decision. he's done a lot of really interesting work since the twillight films. very good actor

    What are some good movies he’s been in? What few movies I’ve seen him in post twilight, he just doesn’t seem a good actor at all to me. Zero range of emotion.

    Maybe I’ve missed anything good he’s been in.

    EDIT. After looking at his films, what movies i have seen of him were while he was still doing Twilight, haven’t seen anything post Twilight.

    He's excellent in Good Time. its a very unique role. He's good in Lost City of Z and I've heard good things about him in Cosmopolis and High Life although ive not seen either. I always liked the idea of Jon Hamm playing Batman but I like Pattinson as a curveball choice.

    I think Pattinson was the one I wanted to see least. Ha.

    But I suppose right now DC have little to lose...

    Just saw that apparently it’s not finalized. And that Nicholas Hoult is still in the running.

    Out of all the people I definitely didn't expect Pattinson to get it.

    I guess this film is going to strike a completely different tone compared to any Batman we've seen before, surely Pattinson the youngest actor to ever play him?

    Bale was probably younger

    He can do the dark, brooding part of Batman very well. I'm yet to see him play cool and charismatic yet though. Honestly I think this could be a Heath Ledger situation: a guy everyone was like wtf when he was announced because it was such a curveball

    Nicholas hoult would be a strange choice to me.

    I’ve no doubt he could play the Batman role, it’s Bruce Wayne that is the question mark for me for Pattinson

    Gave Justice League another watch earlier - the first time I've seen it since it was in cinemas. It really is so depressingly bad, mainly because it had so much promise.

    Hopefully DC can sort themselves out and use these characters properly in the future.

    I don’t think I’ve seen it fully since the cinemas. Seen clips since though.

    In fairness I don't think it's that bad. As a standalone film it's alright but in terms of the DCEU it's pretty terrible and is obviously now the straw which broke the camel's back.

    The whole thing just feels rushed, there's no payoff to any of the characters and Steppenwolf is a terrible villain. It's like Marvel putting out the first Avengers film with only Iron Man, Thor and Iron Man 2 preceding it, then trying to introduce Captain America, the Hulk etc. all within the first half an hour.

    Deadline has revealed intriguing new details on The Falcon and The Winter Solider Disney+ series, which will see Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan reprise their MCU roles as Steve Rogers' best buds.

    Perhaps most exciting is the news that Civil War supporting players Daniel Bruhl and Emily Van Camp are in talks to return as Zemo and Sharon Carter/Agent 13.


    ZEMO!!!!!

    Normally up to date on the CW shows but haven’t watched in weeks. Gotta catch up

    Saw the teaser headline for the crossover so kinda have an idea of what happened at the end

    But yeah as its square enix involved in the Avengers game, @XxRichiexRichxX , a lot of people including me are hopeful it'll be good, but details have been so sparse for so long now that it's just a relief they're finally talking about it :joy: Been wanting a AAA Avengers game for years, hopefully this is it, but we'll see what it looks like at E3

    Nice :blush: I really hope they do it justice, I'm sure they will as it's such a massive thing to make an avengers game now, hopefully they have looked at what made the Spiderman game so incredible

    Pretty bad is a understatement lol the most positive reviews are still only 6/10 it seems everyone is placing in the bottom 3 of the X-Men movies alongside origins and last stand. Such a inconsistent franchise hopefully Disney sort it out when it gets rebooted in 5-10 years

    Yeah it's a shame the series has ended this way. I'm a big fan of the xmen films. I've liked all of them apart from origins wolverine
