Pattinson made his big-screen debut as Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire before moving on to the Twilight trilogy, where he played lead character Edward Cullen in various films up until the series finale. After that, the actor began taking on smaller roles in independent films, allowing him to hone his craft and refine his abilities outside of the blockbuster sphere.

As a result, Pattinson has a long list of memorable performances to his credit; including The Rover, The Lost City of Z, Good Time, High Life; The Lighthouse, The King, and, most recently, Christopher Nolan’s Tenet. Pattinson is now back in the spotlight as The Batman, playing one of the most recognised characters of all time.

According to Empire, it’s the character’s first solo series in a decade, and the filmmakers “can lay a foundation that you can build stories upon”; as proven by the multiple spinoff projects in the works, including a Gotham PD show and one centred on Farrell’s Penguin character.

Director Matt Reeves describes the film as a “passion project,” with the goal of creating a picture that will stand out rather than being just another entry in a series of scheduled sequels. While there are no plans for Batman sequels or crossovers at this time;

Pattinson claims he has ideas for what he would do with the role if he were to continue, saying: “I’ve made a kind of map for where Bruce’s psychology would grow over two more movies. I would love to do it.”
