Personally, I’m excited to see a younger Bruce Wayne hit the screen. And since I’ve been a Robert Pattinson fan since his Cedric Diggory and Edward Cullen days — that’s Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and Twilight for you Rob Pat haters — I’m thrilled to see him play the Gotham City vigilante. His calm, rather cocky demeanor seems to be a perfect fit for our typically brooding billionaire.
In addition to Robert Pattinson, The Batman is already touting an impressive cast, and quite a few well-known Batman characters. Find the full list below.
