CHICAGO – Since I was no fan of of director Zack Snyder’s take on the Caped Crusader – “Batman v Superman” and “The Justice League” being some of the worst superhero movies ever to sputter onto the big screen – as far as I was concerned the franchise had nowhere to go but up.

Within that sense, the casting of the one-time-sulky “Twilight” vampire Robert Pattinson gave me significant pause, but I am also one to happily admit when I’m wrong. And much to my surprise, Pattinson as “The Batman” actually works. He seems to spend the majority of the movie donning the cape and cowl comfortably, and he right at home. He’s most uncomfortable when he embodies the identity of brooding billionaire orphan Bruce Wayne. But against all odds, Pattinson finds a fresh take on the man in the cape.

“The Batman” opens in theaters on March 4th. Featuring Robert Pattinson, Zoe Kravitz, Colin Farrell, Peter Sarsgaard, John Turturro, Jeffrey Wright, Andy Serkis and Paul Dano. Written by Matt Reeves and Peter Craig. Directed by Matt Reeves. Rated “PG-13”
