The Batman (2023)

#14. The Batman

"Batman was always meant to be played by a misunderstood misfit, and though Keaton and Bale had incredibly memorable moments themselves, Pattinson is a perfect fit for the billionaire boy orphan."

How do you reinvent an icon?  You dig a little deeper.  You go a little darker.  You look for something different, a level of pathos, of pain that hasn't been tapped into.

And though we all know the story of Batman, his parents, and his subsequent identity as the Caped Crusader, we don't know the story of young Bruce Wayne.

Robert Pattinson is like a bottle rocket waiting to be set off.  A brooding, self-imposed dynamo, he has always been fit to play characters that exist outside the lines.  And yet, he's born with the charisma and charm of a leading man.  Someone you can watch, root for, and hate, all with equal anticipation.
