Meet the Stars Joining Robert Pattinson in Matt Reeves's The Batman
It's true, folks: another Batman reboot is coming. After Warner Bros. announced that 2022's The Batman wouldn't include leading man Ben Affleck, we couldn't wait to find out who would take up the cowl and defend Gotham City. We finally got our answer when Robert Pattinson officially signed on as the new Bruce Wayne for Matt Reeves's noir-esque action film, joining a few other famous faces.
Although Jonah Hill was initially rumored to be joining the cast as a villain, talks with the studio fell through. The Batman then found a major comic foe for the Dark Knight to take on in the form of the Riddler, who will be portrayed by Paul Dano. Now that the trailer has officially dropped, check out who's confirmed to show up in Gotham in 2022, ahead!
