There have been a lot of reports making the rounds suggesting that Robert Pattinson will not be playing Batman after the upcoming The Batman movie.
They are claiming that Pattinson and Matt Reeves haven’t been getting along on set.
Now, I’ve been told that these reports are bogus and that Warner Bros. Pictures is keen on keeping Pattinson for as long as possible.
However, we’re now hearing reports that Warner Bros. is thinking of casting a black actor in the role next.
This comes after DC Comics revealed their new black Batman in Tim Fox who took up the cowl in the comic series.
The series was written by 12 Years a Slave screenwriter John Ridley.
The next Batman could be black
Here’s what Giant Freakin Robot wrote in their exclusive article on the next Batman being black:
According to our trusted inside source – the same one that has provided Giant Freakin Robot with multiple confirmed exclusive scoops that have included Bruce Campbell appearing for a cameo in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Monica Rambeau being a main character in the upcoming Disney+ series Secret Invasion, and Chloe Bennet returning as Quake for a new Marvel series – Warner Bros./DC is developing a Black Batman movie in a similar vein as their Black Superman movie. Our source says that this character will not be Bruce Wayne but a totally different person who will take on the mantle.
