Matt Reeves will begin his Batman career as the director of the trilogy in 2021, and it looks like he has his reservation about Robert Pattinson’s which is why the movie will see 6 villains.
Matt Reeves, the director for ‘The Batman’ 2021 has confirmed the upcoming cast. Batman 2021 includes sandy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth and new villain Colin Farrell as The Penguin. In the movie, Robert Pattinson will be seen debuting as the new Batman. In addition, the film has already introduced the cast for Catwoman i.e Zoë Kravitz. Furthermore, Paul Dano is playing the Riddler and Jeffrey Wright we will see him as Commissioner Gordon.
The Batman will be in the theaters in 2021. Two villains have been introduced in the cast till now. Furthermore, the movie plot will revolve around the time when Batman’s greatest enemies are back and running rampant in Gotham City. The movie cast is slowly filling up. In fact, it is rumored that the upcoming movie will have at least 6 villains face up to Batman.
So, why does Rob Pattinson’s Batman need so many villains?
The upcoming villains in the Batman movie that we can assume are Penguin, Riddler, Mad Hatter, Catwoman, Firefly, and Two-Face. Matt Reeves will take the help of the iconic comic book series, Batman: The Long Halloween for the movie’s storyline. More than wants the Batman movie to be a superhero movie, he wants it to be more of a detective story.
The movie will possibly revolve around Gotham where people are dying in a strange way. Now, Batman has to find out clues and solve the mystery/conspiracy connected to Gotham City’s history and criminals. A bad guy known as “The Brain” will also be joining Penguin. Penguin will be the villain central to the new Batman movie series.
The new faces recently revealed
Recently, the studio introduced one of the most important figures in Batman mythology – Alfred Pennyworth. He is the Wayne family’s butler who raises young Bruce all alone after Thomas and Martha are dead. Andy Serkis is cast as Alfred in The Batman 2021 movie.
Serkis becomes the latest to be with Marvel and DC films. He was previously seen in the MCU and in Venom 2 for Sony. Serkis is best for his motion-capture acting work, including his role as Caesar in the rebooted Planet of the Apes film trilogy.
With Serkis in the Batman, Colin Farrell is another potential heavyweight casting. Farrell too has been part of comic book movies before, playing the villain in 2003’s Daredevil. He’s better known for thrillers such as 2002’s Minority Report.
Is Matt Reeves unsure about Robert Pattinson’s screen presence?
So, it looks like the studio now is depending on the villains rather than the hero. Matt Reeves wants 6 Villain and we get a feeling he isn’t very confident about the screen presence of Robert Pattinson for the batman 2021. Furthermore, according to reports, director Reeves has signed on for a full trilogy of Batman films. And he wants to ensure the first film is as big a success as Chris Nolan’s Batman Begins. And if that’s to be, then we could be seeing a Matt Reeves – Robert Pattinson partnership as a Caped Crusader for a while.
Surely, the Bruce – Alfred dynamic will be similar to what fans know. But there’s an opportunity here to do some different things with the character. Since there have been two other Alfreds in close proximity to each other. Thus, going a slightly different route on The Batman and we can appreciate it.
