While many doubted Robert Pattinson’s ability to portray Gotham City’s eccentric billionaire Bruce Wayne, he couldn’t remove the cape of Batman. Nor his socks:

In the video below, actor Robert Pattison (The Lighthouse, Twilight) reveals to BBC One that he stole an impressive 156 pairs of socks:

The Dark Knight got a stern talking-to from Warner Bros. executives, demanding that he stop stealing the socks of Batman.

Nonetheless, of all the things Pattinson could have swiped, he chose socks?

Despite flat reviews from critics, many are stating that they “didn’t expect it to be so beautiful”:

The Batman

They gave me an incredible detective movie & one about becoming a hero.

It gets you lost in vengeance just like the characters, but then it hits you with the true essence of Batman.

I expected this story to be great, but I didn’t expect it to be so beautiful.

Another fan wrote:

No way around it. This movie is a masterpiece. The way Matt Reeves reels you in from the cinematography and hair raising music score from Michael Giacchino #TheBatman is THE batman movie.

Standout performances all around helps give us a dark but authentic take on Gotham City.

The Batman has been in development for almost a decade, with DCEU “Batfleck” Ben Affleck originally at the helm to star, write, and direct this DC film that was initially connected to Zack Snyder:

Development began after Ben Affleck was cast as Batman in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) in 2013. Affleck signed on to direct, produce, co-write, and star in The Batman, but had reservations about the project and dropped out. Reeves took over and reworked the story, removing the DCEU connections. He sought to explore Batman’s detective side more than previous films, drawing inspiration from 1970s films and comics… Pattinson was cast to replace Affleck in May 2019, and further casting took place in late 2019.

Among the many controversies of recent DC films, such as Joss Whedon’s reported racist treatment towards Zack Snyder’s Justice League (2021) star Ray Fisher — as well as various controversies that were afflicted upon Ezra Miller (Barry Allen/The Flash) and Gal Gadot (Diana Prince/Wonder Woman) — The Batman is the turning point in the future of DC heroes, villains, and more.

Robert Pattinson stars as the Bruce Wayne/The Batman (AKA “Dark Knight”), with Zoë Kravitz (Selina Kyle/Catwoman), Paul Dano (Edward Nashton/Riddler), Colin Farrell (Penguin), Jeffrey Wright (LT. James Gordon), Andy Serkis (Alfred Pennyworth), Carmine Falcone (John Turturro), and Barry Keoghan (Officer Stanley Merkel) support the three-hour-long movie that’s set to destroy Gotham City, frame the Caped Crusader, and break box office records — all from the mind of writer and director Matt Reeves and composer Michael Giacchino.
