When Robert Pattinson was cast as the caped crusader in Matt Reeves’ The Batman, the Internet had opinions! But initial skepticism mostly disappeared as fans familiarized themselves with Pattinson’s eclectic post-Twilight career. In this in-depth look at Pattinson’s road to Gotham, Rotten Tomatoes Editor Jacqueline Coley breaks down how the actor’s evolution from heart-throb to risk-taker coincided with a major change in superhero cinema, and how those two shifts collided to make the former Edward Cullen the perfect future Bruce Wayne.

The Batman is scheduled to release in theaters October 1, 2021.
