    Hope to be proven wrong, but I doubt it...
    Pattinson is 33 years old. Christian Bale was, I believe, 31 when he first played Batman.

    Good pic!

    Yeah, Pattinson has been a good actor after his tween turn. That pic gives him a good gritty look.

Shifting over to a stoic intimidating persona that can only emote with his jaw and mouth while heavily restricted in body language due to a 20+ pound rubber suit, that is where things get interesting as far as acting goes.
    You say that, but I still find the weakest Bruce Wayne to be the one portrayed in the Nolan saga.

    Always found him too bland, myself.

    The whole point of the Nolan trilogy Bruce Wayne is that it's always been a mask, a fake out that Batman has been putting on since he came back from the League of Shadows. Christian Bale's Bruce Wayne was meant to always be bored and bland-ish. It wasn't real.

    Bale was the best batman, Affleck and Clooney most likely the worst. Val Kilmer was a decent batman as well but hes old now.

    Maybe Pattinson will make a good batman? who knows but the bar has been set pretty low recently.

    I actually don't believe it will be connected to Batfleck at all. DC has pretty much given up on the connected universe stuff and are going to just make stand alone movies (outside of the few planned sequels like Wonder Woman and Aquaman) that they may or may not try to tie together down the road if they do well. Some people think this new Batman movie may be connected to the up coming Joker movie in some way but neither are likely to be connected to the existing "DCEU" in any way.

    Robert might actually do better... well he certainly can't do worse than affleck.
    George Clooney is the worse batman.

    George Clooney and Val Kilmer were the worst Batmen.

    Honestly? The way Affleck played Batman (minus the whole Martha thing) in BvS was perfectly fine and awesome. Then they made him the comedy relief and, for some reason, very loose with his alter ego was dumb. Clooney will forever retain the worst Batman by himself.
    Just don't reply to me. Please. If you can help it.

    Robert Pattinson might actually be a decent batman. He has a good jaw which is the most important batman feature, so who knows?

    Someone mentioned Hayden Christensen. He's not even a bad actor; just gets shat on for getting put in a poorly-written role. I would probably enjoy seeing him in the right role in one of these cinematic universes.

    Isn't it basically canon across the entire DCEU that Batman is the character, and Bruce Wayne is the facade?
    If you are particularly bold, you could use a Shiny Ditto. Do keep in mind though, this will infuriate your opponents due to Ditto's beauty. Please do not use Shiny Ditto. You have been warned.

    Note the "Of sorts". I just meant that it's going to be a movie set before the Batflek movies, they might throw in a reference or two, but there won't be a direct connection.

    Also... How good does Joker look?

We are currently in stage 2 where people are trying to nitpick and deconstruct it (mostly complaints about the voice). Wait until 2030 or so and people will think Bale is the best Batman of all time.
    Nope, I haven't liked Bale's Batman since I first tried to watch the first in the trilogy when it released. The voice isn't a nitpick, it's literally something that makes me laugh. How people accepted it and thought it was fine, I'll never understand. He'll never be a Batman I'll want to watch.

    If rubber nipple Batman suits are wrong, I don't want to be right! They were obviously integral to their performances.

    Is he suffering from depression or something, or drugs? He looks sick and tired.

    I mean.. he was "batman". Baile, while excellent.. was "kinda batman".

    So like you said, i wont judge Mr.Twillight until i see him in the role.
    Cause i did that with Affleck and i was proven wrong.

    The way he gets up after being knocked down in BvS in such a carefree manner during their bout is great.
    I'll definitely agree on this, Affleck did a really good batman, loved the bruality. However BvS was just shitty writing, impossible to pull of such a shitty synopsis. Civil War level of cringe.

    Give him a chance. The guy's been getting some acclaim on smaller films since Twilight, and has made somewhat of a name for himself. It might be terrible, but he might do a good job.

    Dont think I've seen a satisfying fight to that degree since The Raid came out. The Raid still wins, but still. Weight in fights are important. Hollywood tend to go with speed instead.

    I think Affleck was good as the older version of Batman. He had the perfect build for it. Although he is by no means the best actor, he's not a bad one (And def not the worst batman or movie(s)). What killed him was the two bad storylines that "that Batman" was tied to.

    He actually stepped down from playing the character anymore because he kept getting shitty scripts from WB studios. I don't blame him. He is after all a big comic book fan.
