      Them going for the animated series aesthetic instead of NY at night. Gotham is about to feel like a character.  

      I just want to see Poison Ivy

      They're gonna move shooting for "The Batman" to Glasgow in February @Jake @Cooksie @Captain Fox, it's literally PERFECT for Gotham AHHHHHHKGFDHJKGDF    &#13

      So I meant to post about this a while back, but here we are. So with the rumor that Matt Reeves' Batman takes place in the 90s and this tea coming out that a Supergirl movie is in the works, set in the 70s, to take place in the same universe as Batman, I started theorizing that this section is probably gonna be their rebooted universe with Superman later being re-introduced "in the 90s" with Batman. Then at some point, when WB feels comfortable again to make it all one cinematic universe, these characters will make their way through time via Flash (hence why is movie is being rewritten and delayed endlessly). Then we have Wonder Woman, another period piece, set in the 80s, which Patty confirmed is its own separate entity apparently with no real connection to the last movie. So she'll maybe be used to merge the past with the present and exist in both timelines.

      tl;dr they're soft-rebooting the DC universe the same way Fox did with their X-Men with First Class.

      (removes tin foil hat)

      @Jake humor me! I'm not quite sure where Harley/Birds of Prey fits in this reworking, but maybe those will just be those and exist in the "modern" timeline with Aquaman and Shazam. James Gunn's Suicide Squad literally is a reboot, it seems, too.

      An in depth look on how Robert was cast as Batman, courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter:

      Quote

      Director Matt Reeves, who picked the 'Twilight' star over Nicholas Hoult, is said to have screen-tested both actors in a Batsuit from a previous Caped Crusader film.

      Two weeks ago, a black jacket-clad Robert Pattinson faced flashbulbs and reporters at the Cannes Film Festival premiere of his period drama, The Lighthouse. When one guest approached him at the reception and said, “I heard you were the new Batman,” he offered only a sly smile and stayed mum.

      In reality, Pattinson was not the Caped Crusader…just yet. Hours after his Cannes duties in designer duds, he would be on a plane to Los Angeles to face perhaps the biggest test of his acting career: putting on a Batsuit for director Matt Reeves, who is casting The Batman.

      That test was officially passed Friday, when Warner Bros. announced that Pattinson had won the role. The decision was the culmination of an intense process that insiders describe as surprisingly quick. As opposed to most superhero casting efforts, which often include far-and-wide searches and dozens of screen tests for the likes of Superman or more recently, Spider-Man, the Batman process was notably smooth.

      “It was quick,” says one Warners insider. “Quicker than normal.”

      Reeves, who was hired to write and direct a new Batman movie in February 2017, was envisioning actors while penning the script, according to sources familiar with the filmmaker’s thinking. It helped that this new Batman needed to conform to a defined age bracket. He is written as around 30 years old, and the story is neither another rehashing of his origin nor the tale of a seasoned crimefighter ruling Gotham City. He is Bruce Wayne still trying to find his footing on his way to becoming the genius detective.

      This, of course, eliminated Ben Affleck, as THR first reported back in July 2017. (Affleck and Warner Bros. denied the recasting at the time because the actor, who had played the role in Batman v Superman and Justice League, was to have headlined his own stand-alone movie that was sidelined when the studio began rethinking its superhero strategy.)

      Reeves is said to have considered Pattinson, 33, early on in the process, says one source, even though no outreach was made. Reeves didn’t even know if the actor wanted the part. Since Pattinson shot to fame as a heartthrob vampire in the Twilight films, he has built a solid résumé in smaller, well-reviewed independent films like Good Time and Maps to the Stars. He has assiduously avoided big studio franchise films.

      But that fact actually made him more attractive to Reeves and the executive team at Warner Bros. Specifically, Pattinson has not yet appeared in a Marvel Studios movie, and name-brand actors not working for the DC Comics rival are becoming few and far between. While there are no contract provisions prohibiting Marvel actors from appearing in DC/Warner Bros. movies and vice versa, execs believe that cross-pollination dilutes both brands and can cause confusion for audiences, especially from a marketing point of view.

      Nicholas Hoult, 29, who became Pattinson’s chief rival later in the process, had been appearing as Hank McCoy, aka the Beast, in the X-Men movies. But Warners execs didn’t disqualify him because the X-Men flicks are not part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, are ensemble in nature and Hoult spent large chunks of those movies unrecognizable as a furry blue mutant.

      Reeves is said to have spent hours poring over the two actors’ work and met with them in April. Pattinson has far more name recognition than Hoult, but it was his work in Good Time and High Life, among others, that Reeves kept on coming back to. Hoult, too, had impressed the deliberate filmmaker, known for his thought-provoking work on the Planet of the Apes franchise, with The Favourite this winter.

      The two actors in short order became the only contenders, and during the week of May 20, when Pattinson flew in from Cannes, both shot screen tests in costume on the Burbank lot. Each had a pre-negotiated deal in place, ready to go into effect for whoever had the final contingency lifted, the screen test.

      Pattinson and Hoult put on a suit from a previous Batman movie, as has become customary in the Bat-test process. (Christian Bale, before landing Batman Begins, performed his test in the suit used by Val Kilmer in 1995’s Batman Forever, for instance.) Did they embody the character? How did their eyes look and act? Is there a specialness to them? Those were the questions Reeves and the studio wanted answered.

      “(Reeves) wanted very specific things,” says one insider. “He knew what he was looking for.”

      Reeves and Warners execs took the week after Memorial Day to deliberate their choices, and by Thursday night, made the calls to the actors. The Batman who would lead the studio into the 2020s had been found.

      Pattinson now moves on to the next stage: getting fitted for his own Batsuit, and training for a shoot that will likely take place in early 2020. 

      It's funny how every few days they're finding something to report or profile about this movie, truly the most anticipated film in the next few years :shook:

          Rotten Tomatoes: 79%
           
          "[I]t's also brimming with the same wonder and joy as the first film, the rare movie - of any stripe - that doesn't just want to believe in the goodness of people, but is willing to make them truly work for it. That's superheroic." - Kate Erbland, indieWire
          "A notable improvement on its already great predecessor, Wonder Woman 1984 is exactly the kind of bright and hopeful movie the character's legacy deserves." - Matt Purslow, IGN
          "In a year when the cinemagoing experience could be categorised as 'much too little', you can't really blame WW84 for giving us a bit too much." - Philip De Semlyen, Time Out
          "Director Patty Jenkins has followed that original film... with something much longer, cornier and wobblier, but which is energised with a streak of pure movie-star enchantment that recalls the sparkly-eyed uplift of the Christopher Reeve Superman films." - Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph (UK)
          "Maybe Wonder Woman will be the one to save us, after all." - Mary Sollosi, Entertainment Weekly
          "[D]irector Patty Jenkins and her star, Gal Gadot, have mastered the art of cornball conviction." - Justin Lang, Los Angeles Times
          "There's still a lot to love." - David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
          "Jenkins is an enormously talented filmmaker on whom the studio took a chance - one that's seldom questioned when conferred upon men - and she proves her worth by never letting the spectacle drown out the performances." - Peter Debruge, Variety
          "As candy-coloured and bright as the first film was all muddy dark-blues, Wonder Woman 1984 has an enlivening sense of bubbly pop to it." - Barry Hertz, Globe and Mail (Canada)
          "This is a throwback piece of pure pop entertainment." - Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun Times
          "The film's wickedly pungent social satire must occasionally step aside for superheroics, of course. And while the reteaming of Gadot and Jenkins provides the expected thrills and excitement, this sequel shares the significant flaw of its predecessor." - Alonso Duralde, The Wrap
          "A vibrant and virtuous adventure packed with all the heart and heroism we've come to expect from DC's shining light. Wonder Woman 1984 really is the hero 2020 needed all along." - Ben Travis, Empire Magazine
          "If WW84 can't quite reach the heights of the first film, it still soars beautifully when it matters most." - Angie Han, Mashable
          "Wonder Woman 1984 is solid where it counts, maudlin in the way its fans need it to be, and, similarly, just funny enough to be charming. For all that goes unsaid, the writing is even occasionally clever." - K. Austin Collins, Rolling Stone
          "The same elements that made "Wonder Woman" such a pleasure to watch are present in "WW84," including the supremely self-possessed Gadot, who plays the title character with the same grace and understatement she brought to the initial installment." - Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
          "The ambitions of "Wonder Woman 1984" may be just outside its grasp, but it seldom feels predestined or predictable - a preciously rare commodity in the genre." - Jack Coyle, Associated Press
