    I don't particularly mind Pattinson playing Batman. I think there have been enough casting choices that were questioned at the time that turned out to be great, Heath Ledger's Joker comes to mind.

    I am more interested in what story they will be telling and if it is compelling. One aspect of Batman from the comics that I wish would be addressed more in the movies is his abilities as a master detective. Some of the larger mystery arcs have been the most fun for me and I would love to see that angle addressed.

      I hope they use this opportunity to ditch the ridiculous growling and give Batman a fucking voice masking device. He’s got the money.

        Have you seen the unbelievable reviews for The Lighthouse? It has both Dafoe & Pattinson.

          Like I said he might be a great actor. But he doesn’t have the physique.

    I, for one, simply look forward to seeing the bat on the screen. He's young looking and I think a Year One adaptation could be really interesting.

    I'm not sure how the sparkle vampire will do as Batman, but I guess I can see the parallels in the roles. How soon before we get the mashup videos?
