VIDEO: Robert Pattinson Makes His Dark Knight Debut in First Official Teaser for ‘The Batman’

February 14, 2020

The Dark Knight returns in some newly released official footage from Matt Reeves’ 2021 rendition of “The Batman,” starring Stern Show veteran Robert Pattinson as the titular DC Comics superhero.

While the short camera test (above) doesn’t offer up any plot details or supporting characters, it does give fans a first look at Pattinson in character as the Caped Crusader as well as a taste of composer Michael Giacchino’s ominous film score.

A quartet of well-known villains will reportedly star opposite Pattinson in next year’s film, including Colin Farrell as the Penguin, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Zoë Kravitz as Catwoman, and John Turturro as mob boss Carmine Falcone. Additionally, Andy Serkis plays Bruce Wayne’s famed butler Alfred Pennyworth and Jeffrey Wright appears as Gotham City Police Department Commissioner Jim Gordon.

Robert memorably opened up to Howard about a variety of topics during his 2017 Stern Show debut, which occurred before he’d landed the role of Batman. He discussed starring in the “Twilight” franchise, getting expelled from school for stealing dirty magazines, and even whether or not he’d consider playing a superhero on the big screen. Listen to his conversation with the King of All Media (below).

“The Batman” opens June 25, 2021.
