With Robert Pattinson officially on board as the new Dark Knight, attention is now turning to the rest of Gotham City as Warner Bros., DC Films and director Matt Reeves look to fill out the cast of The Batman.
According to a rumour from Batman-on-Film, Reeves is looking to reunite with his Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and War for the Planet of the Apes star Andy Serkis, with the actor said to be wanted for an unspecified role in the film.
Reports have suggested that Pattinson’s Batman will be going up against no less than six villains, with Catwoman featuring alongside The Penguin, The Riddler, Firefly, Two-Face and the Mad Hatter, and with the likes of Alfred and Gordon presumably up for recasting, there’s certainly plenty of roles for Reeves and company to fill.

The Batman is set for release on June 25th 2021.
