Now that Matt Reeves he found his Bruce Wayne in Robert Pattinsonwhether or not the writer-director has turned his attention to The BatmanAccording to Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision newsletter, the gallery of thieves criminals, which will include the penguin and catwoman.
The Penguin and Catwoman were previously featured in Tim Burton& # 39; S Batman Returns, where they were played Danny DeVito is Michelle Pfeiffer, respectively. Two decades later, Anne Hathaway played Catwoman in Christopher Nolan& # 39; S The dark knight stands up, even if the character has never been called "Catwoman". Instead, it was called "The Cat" or its real name, Selina Kyle.
As for the penguin, otherwise known as Oswald Cobblepot, the character was played by Burgess Meredith in the original ABC television series and the 1966 spinoff movie, while Robin Lord Taylor played as the character of Fox Gotham.
Reeves will not start launching the gallery of Batman's thieves until Pattinson closes his deal, which is believed to be imminent. This despite the fact that, as far as I know, the dusk star hasn't read the script yet, because it's not over yet. But surely Reeves shared his plans with Pattinson when the two met, and it is logical to assume that he already has actors in mind to play the villains. The real question is whether Reeves will play the genus penguin or perhaps another antagonist, such as the Riddler, who is also said to make an appearance, even if this is not confirmed. After all, Reeves will have to keep some surprises up his sleeve and save something special for the sequel, just like Nolan did while waiting for the second film in his Bat trilogy to present Joker and Two-Face.
Josh Gad he wasn't shy on social media on lobbying to play the Penguin, and I think it would make an excellent choice, even if I could say the same Jonah Hill and even Melissa McCarthy. All three would make a big cartoon villain. As for Catwoman, nobody knows, but you can imagine what someone likes Saoirse Ronan could you do with that role? He got three nominations at the Oscar before his twenty-fifth birthday, and it would have been a very intriguing choice, even though he largely avoided big-budget franchise films. Then again, so does Pattinson.
Mackenzie Davis it could also be interesting, and she has been on the edge of a comic book for some time, having recently played a role in Marvel Black Widow which eventually went to Florence Pugh. Before that, the Terminator: Dark Fate Star was waiting for Domino Deadpool 2 as well as a role in Drew GoddardIt is programmed Sinister Six movie.
Again, I didn't hear that none of those actors met with Reeves – unlike Ansel Elgort, the WB star The goldfinch and the imminent by Steven Spielberg West Side Story, who met with the director to discuss the role of the protagonist – come to mind only as strong possibilities, based on the interest they received for studio passports.
Warner Bros. will release The Batman June 25, 2021. Stay tuned for more casting news, because with production starting this fall, you're about to go crazy around these parts.
