Keanu Reeves cast as The Dark Knight in new DC movie
It’s official, Keanu Reeves is the latest actor to take on the role of Batman. The beloved Canadian star will play the Dark Knight in an upcoming DC movie alongside a stellar cast that includes John Krasinski and Nicolas Cage.
This fan-pleasing news comes just days after the worldwide release of The Batman, a stellar film in which Robert Pattinson’s take on the masked vigilante scores all sorts of hits. One thing we can say with some certainty is that Reeves’ Batman will be very different from Pattinson’s…because the movie he plays the character in couldn’t be further from the last live action shot on Gotham.
What am I talking about ? See for yourself in the trailer below.
It’s true: Keanu Reeves is Batman…in DC League of Super Petsan upcoming animated feature about the DC Universe’s animal sidekicks.
It says a lot about the malleability of Batman as a character that you can have him hunt down a masked serial killer who bludgeons people to death in a movie and then release an animated feature a few months later in which he hangs around with a sullen dog voiced by Kevin Hart.
DC League of Super Pets stars Keanu Reeves (Batman), John Krasinski (Superman) Dwayne Johnson (Krypto the Super Dog) and Kevin Hart (Ace the Bat Hound). The animated adventure will see Krypto and Ace form their own version of the Justice League after Superman and the gang are kidnapped. If you haven’t already, this will be a much more family-friendly adventure compared to The Batman.
DC League of Super Pets will be released in international theaters on May 18, 2022. The campaign for a Keanu Reeves Batman live-action will begin soon after, I imagine.
