Robert Pattinson's The Batman Takes Place on DC's Earth-2
A new report suggests Matt Reeves' The Batman, starring Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader, takes place on DC's Earth-2.
A new report offers some insight on what part of the DC Extended Universe's multiverse will be home to The Batman.
According to THR, The Batman will take place on Earth-2. The concept of a cinematic multiverse will also be explored in fellow upcoming DC blockbuster The Flash, which will utilize multiple universes to include both Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton's versions of Batman.
At DC FanDome in 2020, DC Films President Walter Hamada addressed how DC would adapt in terms of embracing the multiverse moving forward. "On one Earth, you have Gal and Jason and Ezra, as this Justice League and you can continue telling these stories, while on another Earth, you can have a more grounded, real, Year Two Batman (a reference to Robert Pattinson's Batman)," he explained. "There is that one Earth, that greater Earth with this existing Justice League and another that's sort of happening with that Year Two Batman. And of course there's outliers like Joker, that doesn't exist on either Earth, but that's OK. Matt Reeves can continue to build out his Gotham."
Directed by Matt Reeves and written by Reeves and Mattson Tomlin, The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon, Zoë Kravitz as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Colin Farrell as Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin, Paul Dano as Edward Nashton/The Riddler, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone and Peter Sarsgaard as District Attorney Gil Colson. The film arrives in theaters March 4, 2022.
