4-time Oscar nominee Willem Dafoe has some thoughts about why Robert Pattinson the rumored star of Matt Reeves 'upcoming The Batman for Warner Bros. Pictures, has an important quality to bring the capped to the big screen.
“He's got a strong chin. That 's part of it, "Told Variety during a chat at Cannes about Lighthouse which Pattinson co-stars into. “Can you imagine anyone with a weak chin ever playing Batman? I don't think so. ”

It's not that we don't think Pattinson can pull it off, but we also have to remember that this will (and should) be a very different Bruce Wayne than we've seen in the most recent iteration * cough * batfleck * cough *.
Reeves has said his movie will be a "point of view-driven, noir Batman speech," and will feature the Rogue's gallery that has continually plagued the Dark Knight and Gotham for so many decades.
“It's t old very squarely on his shoulders, and i hope it's going to be a story that will be thrilling but also emotional. It's more Batman in his detective mode than we've seen in the movies. The comics have a history of that. He's supposed to be the world's greatest detective, and that's not necessarily part of what the movies have been. I love to be one where when we go on the journey of tracking down the criminals and trying to solve a crime, it's going to allow his character to have an arc so that he can go through a transformation.
There will be a Rogues Gallery. The casting process will start shortly. We're starting to put together our battle plan. I do another pass on the script and start some long-lead stuff to start developing conceptual things. ”
We will of course know what we hear from Warner Bros. The Batman which currently has a release date of June 25th, 2021.
