Batman film to ape Joker?
With Joker piling up the Academy Award nominations (beating out the previous most nominated superhero film which was The Dark Knight) and considering Jokers $1 billion dollar boxoffice, the impact it is having on the future of superhero movies, particularly and obviously DC/Warner superhero movies, is becoming evident. Declarations that the next Batman movie will be going in Jokeresque directions seems to be manifesting with the people attached to the project driving media headlines like "Robert Pattinson Is Ready to Push The Batman in a Really Crazy New Direction - Movieweb."

Coming Batman movie loading up with supervillains

Media (article at Deadline Hollywood) is saying Colin Farrell could join cast as Penguin. If so, that brings the super villain count to three. The cast now stands as:
Rob Pattinson as Batman/Bruce Wayne
Paul Dano as The Riddler
Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman
Jeffrey Wright as Commish Gordon
Three villains gives me a flashback to Joel Schumacher's Batman and Robin which also was a three-villain fest (Mr. Freeze, Poison Ivy and Bane) and is usually considered the poorest Batman film of all time.

Movieweb.com goes over the rumours, and the pros and cons of it really happening.
Complaints and defense of Robert Pattinson (famous for Twilight) being cast as Bruce Wayne/Batman at Salon (via Michael Uslan, longtime Batman movie concierge at Warner Bros). Pattinson is working on Chris Nolan's Tenet movie currently and was going to next be doing a Souvenir sequel with Joana Hogg, but is apparently skipping that and (according to comicbook.com) going straight into Matt Reeves' The Batman, the big "tent pole" movie for Warner scheduled for June 2021.
