Robert Pattinson has built an interesting film career. After starting in big franchises such as ‘Harry Potter’ and ‘Twilight’, the actor took an unusual path and worked in several indie movies before returning to the mainstream world with ‘The Batman’, directed by Matt Reeves.
Pattinson, 35, has worked alongside prestigious directors such as David Cronenberg, Claire Denis or Robert Eggers. Before ‘The Batman’, his most recent projects were ‘The Lighthouse’ (2019), Netflix’s ‘The Devil All The Time’ (2020) and Christopher Nolan’s ‘Tenet’ (2020).
After portraying Bruce Wayne, Pattinson has been quiet again but that doesn’t mean he isn’t working soon. He has a couple of projects under his sleeve, including the already confirmed sequel to The Batman. Check out where you can catch him next.
Robert Pattinson's upcoming projects
Bong Joon Ho’s Mickey7 adaptation
Deadline was the first to report at the start of the year that Academy Award winning director Bong Joon Ho is working on a feature based on Edward Ashton’s novel Mickey7 and that Robert Pattinson was in talks to get the lead role. Per the report, the synopsis of the novel is:
Mickey7 is an Expendable: a disposable employee on a human expedition sent to colonize the ice world Niflheim. Whenever there’s a mission that’s too dangerous—even suicidal—the crew turns to Mickey. After one iteration dies, a new body is regenerated with most of his memories intact. After six deaths, Mickey7 understands the terms of his deal…and why it was the only colonial position unfilled when he took it.
The Batman - Part II - (Release date: Oct. 3, 2025)
Confirmed by Matt Reeves and Warner Bros., ‘The Batman’ is going to get a second part after grossing over $750 million worldwide. Reeves is going to write the script, as he did with the first one and alongside Pattinson, Zoë Kravitz is also set to return as Catwoman. There are no details about the plot, but many theories point to a ‘Court of Owls’ storyline.
Average Height, Average Build
The new work by Oscar-winning director Adam McKay will have an all-star cast and we will soon be able to see Robert alongside several top actors, such as Robert Downey Jr, Amy Adams, Forest Whitaker and Danielle Deadwyler. The story will portray the life of a serial killer but it will be a comedy, as confirmed by several media outlets.
Deadline said that “Pattinson will play a serial killer who enlists a lobbyist to change laws that will allow him to get away with murder more easily. Downey Jr’s role is a retired cop who won’t give up on the murders, and the killer tries to prevent him from dogging his trail now that he’s hung up his gun".
Producer for HBO Max
While Pattinson is still very interested in appearing on the big screen, the British star is also building a career behind the camera. Early this year, Deadline also confirmed that Pattinson signed a “first look” deal with Warner Bros. for HBO Max and he already registered his production company Icki Eneo Arlo.
In an interview with GQ, he explained that he likes “molding stuff” and that he’s been conceiving a few projects for a while and he “wants to find an unknown.” He also said that he liked working with HBO Max because “they’re not afraid” to try new things.
