Production has been in full swing on The Batman for weeks as we recently got the first look at Robert Pattinson in the Batsuit and then a stunt-double shooting exterior scenes in Scotland giving us the best look yet at the new costume.
TheHollywoodReporter has revealed that actor Gil Perez-Abraham has joined the comic book film’s growing cast in an unknown role.
WARNERS’ THE BATMAN, with Robert Pattinson as everybody’s favorite brooding billionaire, Bruce Wayne, is in production and here’s a little casting news: Gil Perez-Abraham has joined the roll call.
An up-and-comer, Perez-Abraham appeared in an episode of Orange Is the New Black and played Mj Rodriguez’s brother in Pose. He also starred on stage in the musical We Live in Cairo, which played at American Repertory Theater, and he will be seen in The Walking Dead spinoff, The Walking Dead: World Beyond.
This new film is expected to be part one of a brand new trilogy from director Matt Reeves.
