Tentatively titled The Batman, the film will arrive in theatres in 2021, and is meant to be the first in a trilogy. The Matt Reeves film will follow Batman during his formative years as Gotham City's protector and will make use of the Dark Knight's detective skills to a greater extent than previous DC films.

Directed by Matt Reeves from a script he co-wrote with Mattson Tomlin, The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner James Gordon, Jayme Lawson as Bella, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, and Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth.

Robert Pattinson, who is all set to take on the role of the Caped Crusader, can't wait to start shooting for The Batman.

'Batman's not a superhero, ' he said. That's when Pattinson waded into complicated character waters.

He continued: "It's weird, I always balk at it". I don't think I could ever play a real hero - there's always got to be something a little bit wrong.

The 33-year-old actor, famous for his lead role in the vampire drama, surprised his fans with the announcement that he will now be starring in a huge action-thriller film.

"Batman is not a superhero!" The actor confessed to Sunday Today that you can feel the vibe in the Warner Brothers Studio and that it's a role one can't say no to. "I think it's because one of my eyes is smaller than the other", said Pattinson.

Talking to TODAY's Willie Geist, Pattison said he thinks it's "impossible" to replicate what happened with the Twilight films. I don't know, I'm hoping it won't be people hanging outside my place. The Batman marks his return to the mainstream.
