At the beginning of 2019, it was confirmed that Robert Atkinson would be the new Batman on the big screen, and the reaction on the part of the community was not at all positive. In fact, both the actor and the director of The Batman, Matt Reeves , had to endure all kinds of criticism and attacks of the fans. Now, three years after this revelation, Reeves has been pronounced in this regard.
As part of a new interview with Esquire , Reeves mentioned that Atkinson simply had to go through the same process that any other actor would have to do at the time of interpreting the character:
There has not been any other actor who, when the news was given that he would be the new Batman, did not receive negative reviews.
The people who were excited, I knew they had done because they knew the work of Atkinson Pos-Twilight. People who did not get excited, knew it was because they did not know the work of Atkinson Pos-Twilight.
Similarly, Reeves admitted that by telling a history of origin for the character, they were looking for an actor who not only looked young, but also had a broad emotional spectrum to correctly interpret Batman and Atkinson It was the ideal choice for him and the rest of the team.
The Batman reaches cinemas the March 4, 2022.
Editor’s note: I think Atkinson will do a great job like Batman, and he will shut up many mouths once the film is released. Yes, the work of him on Twilight is perhaps the most recognized of him, but the actor has also had other papers and the truth is that he has done a great job in them.
