Why Robert Pattinson Will Make An Incredible Batman For Today’s Generation

After years of speculation, countless rumors, & nonstop fan castings, it has finally been reported straight from Variety that none other Hollywood Star Robert Pattinson mostly notably known for his work as Edward Cullen in the widely popular film series Twilight, will don the cape & cowl as the new Bruce Wayne/Batman for this generation come June 25th 2021.

Cosmopolis-Poster

I couldn’t be more ecstatic about this news, & I think it’s phenomenal casting! Despite not having a good rep from the twilight films, Pattinson has gone on to become an outstanding actor that has over time won the respect of a lot of critics, fans, & colleagues for turning his career around. He’s shown numerous times throughout his career to have an incredible amount of range in his performances on a number indie films such as Good Times, Bel Ami, The Rover, The Lost City Of Z, & his most recently released film the sci-fi thriller High Life directed by Claire Denis, which again has been met with rave reviews across the board by audiences & critics. He’s no longer the same actor many people saw 10 years ago during the days of Twilight. He’s completely redefined himself in the eyes of the public with the roles he’s chosen, & is taken a lot more seriously as a performer than before. Of course there will always be those fans out there that will feel differently & express their opinion with the usual “Not My Batman” comments, but give it time and I’m sure those that don’t see it now will change how they feel once they see his portrayal on screen.

Matt-Reeves-Batman

 

Most importantly, Matt Reeves who’s given us a handful of critically well received films in 2008’s Cloverfield, Let Me In, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, & War For The Planet Of The Apes is now attached as Director for the upcoming film, & has been very vocal on wanting to give audiences the definitive Batman story showcasing his detective skills at work proving and reminding us all why he’s known to be the world’s greatest detective first & foremost before being a superhero.

We’ve gotten so many films in the past decade most notably Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy, & Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice that have shown only one side of the cape crusader which is the action & spectacle parts, & although that’s entertaining and still very much needed in this new iteration, it’s not the only thing that’s important when bringing a well known beloved character such as Bruce Wayne to life. There’s so much more to him than just cool flips & having him beat up thugs on the street. Bruce Wayne is a character who’s story originates from pure tragedy. A child that watches his parents mugged & killed in an alley right before his eyes for no reason at all, & is then left all alone in a world that looks to have little to no hope. Seeing a film envision what it’s like for someone to grow through all of that can make for a powerful & lasting impact that can spark conversations amongst people for decades to come. That’s the kind of story true Batman fans who’ve loved this character since childhood have wanted for so long. We want a Batman that we can personally identify with, & emotionally fully invest ourselves into. Someone we can follow on a journey through the span of possibly a trilogy or more (if we’re lucky) and realizing why this man is so broken and how inspiring and encouraging it can be to watch such a well respected icon from the comics push through every obstacle that comes his way, no matter how impossible that situation may be. That in my opinion is the true Definitive Batman we need done on the big screen, & I think we are for sure going to get that once cameras start rolling early next year.

batman-movies-ranked

We’ve had so many great portrayals over the years starting from Adam West, to Michael Keaton all the way to Christian Bale and Ben Affleck that some people may say that a fatigue is on the way, but I disagree. Each actor I’ve listed has given us something different from the last, and made the role their own. Pattinson will do the same and bring his own distinct tone & feel to his portrayal once the time comes. People just need to take a step back, breathe, & understand this casting won’t ruin the character by any means. I don’t think Reeves or WB would have signed a contract with him if they didn’t fully believe he can deliver on giving the fans something truly special that will for sure leave many of us very happy. It just takes time, & patience.

Another set of good news to come out due to this report, is that we can expect more casting announcements in the coming weeks as filming is about to go underway. Nothing official, but rumors have been circulating the internet that Vanessa Hudgens maybe in the running for Selina Kyle/Catwoman.

vanessa1

If true, this would be another knock out of the park win for Matt Reeves hands down. Hudgens is mostly known for her work on the widely beloved popular Disney film trilogy High School Musical, Greese: Live & most recently RENT: Live, along with other films such as: Gimmie Shelter, Machete Kills, Spring Breakers, & now the newly released action thriller Polar where she co-stars along side Mads Mikkelson who plays a retired assassin helping a young woman who’s forced into hideout having to fight off a group of psychotic killers in order to get her life back. Hudgens has grown into a terrific actress in a short amount of time, & has even gone on to express her love for the character Catwoman going as far as to saying Michelle Pfeiffer’s portrayal partially helped her pursue a career into acting. She’s already got lots of love for the comics, can for sure give an amazing performance in any project she’s involved in, & has already worked with DC before in the past on NBC’s series Powerless. She’s more than capable of handling a role like this, & it would be a huge push for her career going forward if it all pans out. I for one am rooting for her all the way, & it’s one rumor I hope to the gods ends up coming true. Can’t go wrong with a beautiful, fun, full of life actress such as her. WB please don’t miss out on this opportunity. Take a chance & bring her on to this project. This is one casting you can only benefit from. She has a strong following, & will honor/cherish this role like no other.  Trust on that.

The Batman is set for a release on June 25th 2021! Also, Expect some more news to come soon with San Diego Comic-con right around the corner. It’s a very exciting time to be a Comicbook fan right now. We can only go up from here. Post all your thoughts on the recent news reported surrounding this casting, & share what you’d love to see done this time with the Batman. We’d love to hear from you, & send us a tweet or message to our Facebook pages @Earth2comiccast or @Tweet_JvS! Enjoy the rest of your day! Peace!

Detective Pikachu Spoiler Review: A Faithful Heart-Warming Film Adaptation Of The Pokemon Franchise

Detective Pikachu is an inspiring & heart-warming adaptation of the beloved Pokemon franchise which has been a worldwide phenomenon for over 2 decades. Directed by Rob Letterman & written by Dan Hernandez & Ben Samit, we’re dropped into a whole new never before seen cinematic universe. Pokemon has been something I’ve cherished since I first played the original games titled Pokemon Red & Pokemon Blue released back in 1998. In fact I was so obsessed with Pokemon that I remember only having Pokemon games for my handheld Gameboy SP when I was younger, & nothing else. So many long time fans including myself have grown up with this franchise, & never believed a live action film would happen let alone be possible. So if you’re someone who’s new to all this, you can maybe start to understand why there is so much hype surrounding this movie.

SPOILER Review:

We start our story off seeing a group of scientists in an abandoned facility performing an experiment on the legendary man-made Pokemon known as Mewtwo which is cloned from the remains of its ancient descendant known as Mew. As expected, things start to go awry, & Mewtwo ends up breaking out of the lab & destroying the facility all together out of anger for being kept in captivity for so long.

MV5BMDg5Y2Q1MDQtMDJkOC00NGMwLWE0MWQtYTBjZDgyOTNlZjBiXkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyMjc5MTgyODY@._V1_SX1777_CR0,0,1777,737_AL_

Detective Harry Goodman played by Ryan Reynolds manages to escape the facility before it’s destruction, but is later caught in an accident which looks to be caused by Mewtwo leading to his eventual disappearance.

Some time passes, & the story opens up to our main protagonist Tim Goodman son of Harry Goodman played by Justice Smith who when we’re first introduced to him, doesn’t want to have anything to do with Pokemon at all, but is pushed to go out of his comfort zone by his childhood friend Jack played by Karen Soni to catch a wild Cubone as an attempt to help him open up more after the passing of his mother, along with a falling out with his father, & hopefully start a journey as a Pokemon Trainer. This leads to be unsuccessful, & it’s later revealed that Jack plans on leaving their hometown to now go on his own journey & along with Detective Hideo Yoshida played by Ken Watanabe tries to encourage Tim to do the same.

Justice Smith most notably known for his work on the hit Netflix series The Get Down & the most recent installment of the Jurassic Park film franchise Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, does a wonderful job leading this movie. He’s able to bring a really cool timid, & at times chill personality to the character Tim, & effortlessly makes for a very likable protagonist. You feel for him as you learn more about the tragedy he’s been through, & begin to realize just how lost he is until he meets Lucy(Kathryn Newton) & Pikachu later on in the film. As we follow him on his journey we see him rediscover himself, & find a true purpose in who is, & what he wants to be. Justice Smith is another great addition to this cast, & honestly continues to show us just how good of an actor he really is, & will leave you with a more than satisfying performance, & I have no doubt we’ll see more of this actor in the future as well.

Tim is later called by the police concerning the earlier accident with his father leading him to believe he’s passed away. This news breaks Tim’s heart, and causes him to isolate himself from everyone. As he makes his way to his apartment, he’s met by a mysterious young woman known by the name Lucy Stevens played by Kathryn Newton who many of you may know from HBO’s hit show Big Little Lies, and 2018’s critical success comedy film Blockers.

detective-pikachu-kathryn-newton-3-600x400

Kathryn Newton brings so much positive energy to this character, that she honestly radiates the room whenever she’s on screen, & you can’t help but fall in love with her charm, witty, & bright personality that honestly comes off very warm & inviting as you follow her through this grand adventure with Tim & Pikachu. Newton is hands down one of the biggest highlights of this movie, & I hope we see more of her in future installments going forward because she really does an incredible job making you feel for a moment like you’re truly a part of this new world as we watch this story unfold. Rob Letterman made the right choice casting her in this role, & once you’ve seen the film yourself you’ll understand why. Most definitely a rising star in the making, & I’m always left excited about any project she does because she’s really that talented.

Lucy Stevens is a news reporter for CNM in Ryme City investigating the whereabouts of Tim’s father Harry Goodman, & approaches Tim in attempt to help her solve the case, & find out what really happened the night of Mewtwo’s escape.

Tim of course ignores her at first, & heads home only to be met by a Pikachu which is later revealed to be Harry Goodman’s partner Pokemon, & on top of that can now communicate with him.

The two are later met by the founder of Ryme City himself Howard Clifford played by Bill Nighy, & during their encounter explains to them that Harry Goodman’s disappearance was no accident and they must find Mewtwo if they are ever to find out what led to the tragedy of that night.

 Billy Nighy as expected also gives an amazing performance as Howard Clifford throughout, & is able to display a man that’s genuinely in mourning after the loss of his dear friend Harry Goodman, but then manages to give a complete switch in character showing off a very menacing behavior that in the third act makes for a more than decent antagonist that’s become obsessed & psychotic with his work over the years prior to the start of this film, & is willing to do in his mind whatever it takes to accomplish his goals. Billy Nighy is always a pleasant surprise to see on screen, & is a welcoming asset to any film he’s in especially this one. Great actor through & through.

detective-pikachu-bill-nighy-2-600x243

Pikachu & Tim later decide to partner up together along with the news reporter Lucy Stevens who we we’re introduced to earlier to help save Tim’s father, & throughout the course of their journey they’re met with some insane obstacles such as facing off against an army of Greninjas that were held in the same facility Mewtwo was experimented on and later is forced to outrun moving mountains revealed to be gigantic Torterras also experimented on in the same abandoned Facility Tim’s father escaped before his disappearance.

detective-pikachu-justice-smith-kathryn-newton-4-600x250

Pikachu ends up hurt during all this, & Tim is lead into the forest by a pack of Bulbasaurs to a mysterious location in attempt to save him. Only to be caught by the surprise of Mewtwo itself which saves Pikachu from his wounds, and is once again caught by the same scientists that held him prisoner in the beginning of the film.

Tim reaches out to Clifford about his findings and is later shocked by the revelation that Clifford was behind everything including the disappearance of Harry Goodman. His plan all along wanting to combine the human mind & Pokemon mind as one, & later ends up enacting this very plan using a machine that allows him to fuse his mind with Mewtwo’s as to what he calls the next step in human evolution, & then proceeds to perform the same act on the entire city.

Tim & Pikachu are left up to the task to stop Clifford, & reverse the damage he’s done before it’s too late. They end up defeating Clifford by destroying his machine, & reverting everyone back to their original bodies once again.

Mewtwo ends up granting Tim & Pikachu the answers they’ve been seeking their whole journey together throughout the course of the film, & reveals to us Harry’s mind was transferred into Pikachu as a way to save his life from the accident. Mewtwo reverses the affects giving Harry Goodman his body back, & The film ends with Tim & Harry finally having a heart to heart moment with each other as Father & son, leading Tim to make the decision to become a detective just like his dad.

detective_pikachu_trailer_01_1920

Detective Pikachu gives us a solid straight forward story centrally focused on the message of how not isolating from the rest of the world, & opening up to new people can allow you the chance to rediscover yourself, & help you realize what you’re capable of once you begin to finally commit yourself to a goal you’re passionate about.

Ryan Reynolds voices Pikachu & does a very good job bringing the iconic Pokemon to life, & never once misses a beat with the comedic humor that is absolutely needed in this film due to the tragedy surrounding Tim Goodman. A true comedic relief, but also an incredible co-lead & his chemistry with the entire cast is almost infectious as you see just how well they all manage to play off of each other in this movie. Letterman couldn’t have found a better actor than Ryan Reynolds for this role, & I’m truly happy & satisfied with the performance he gives us throughout this movie. A true delight to watch on screen from beginning to end.

Overall, I had a great time with this movie, & left shocked on how faithful it was to the source material. It’s welcoming to newcomers just as much as it is older fans, definitely a film you want to take kids to, & opens the door to possibly an even bigger cinematic universe for the future. Even if you’re someone who’s not really familiar with the franchise, you may end up finding yourself a fan once you’ve seen this film. Give it a chance and decide for yourself where you stand on it. This movie is not just a first good attempt to a live action Pokemon movie, but also may very well be our best video game adaptation on screen yet! I give Detective Pikachu a solid A!

That’s the end of my spoiler review. Hope you enjoyed it. Have you seen the film yet? If so, send us a Tweet or message on our Facebook or Twitter pages @earth2ComicCast or @Tweet_JVS letting us know your thoughts. We’d love to hear them. Until next time, have a great day everyone!
