Having signed a first-look development and production deal with Warner Bros., New Line Cinema, Warner Bros Television, and HBO Max earlier this year, Robert Pattinson is expected to appear in his share of WarnerMedia content over the coming years.
Having recently appeared in the Christopher Nolan blockbuster Tenet before jumping into The Batman, Pattinson is already well-versed WB operations. The actor will be The Dark Knight for the foreseeable future, but his presence might not be restricted to the big screen.
We’re hearing from our sources — the same ones who told us Ben Affleck would be returning as the Caped Crusader in The Flash long before it was confirmed — that Pattinson reportedly wants to show up in whatever spinoffs emanate from The Batman. And many are getting rumored.
The HBO Max series focusing on Gotham City Police is the one officially on the docket, and the show takes place prior to the events of The Batman, although that doesn’t rule out a cameo from Bruce Wayne.
Zoë Kravitz’s Catwoman has also been linked with her own solo project, and seeing as Pattinson has a deal in place with the company, it would make both narrative and contractual sense for him to drop by wherever possible.
