DC fans have been close to the edge for years. “The Dark Knight” trilogy was arguably the last amazingly great film DC put out; since then it’s been tragic garbage after tragic garbage. After the recent success of “Joker” and the excitement surrounding the upcoming “Birds of Prey” film, “The Batman” almost seems as if it’s the last part to the equation that’ll finally make DC movies reputable again. The casting is just one step closer to making that puzzle piece fit perfectly.

Batman is broody and serious; Robert Pattinson is broody and serious. Catwoman is slinky and sexy; Zoë Kravitz is slinky and sexy. The casting of Pattinson and Kravitz is DC history in the making—we can’t wait for that sexual chemistry to steam on the big screen.

No. No no no no no. Robert Pattinson as Batman and Zoë Kravitz as Catwoman is clearly a terrible idea. Neither reflects the depth or the little intricacies of either character. It’s as if the movie’s makers thought, “Well, we can’t cast any worse than Ben Affleck!” before drawing random names from a hat.

In defense of shoddy casting choices, people always like to say, "Hey, no one liked Heath Ledger as the Joker, and he ended up being the best one!" But just because that one instance happened doesn’t mean filmmakers should recklessly cast characters that are so upheld by fans. Do right by the crowd that made the franchise, not by lazy, preconceived notions.
