Richardson won his three Oscars for Oliver Stone’s JFK, and Martin Scorsese’s The Aviator and Hugo. Richardson has also frequently worked with Quentin Tarantino including Kill Bill: Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, Inglourious Basterds, Django Unchained, The Hateful Eight, and the upcoming Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
Casting is still ongoing for The Batman with Robert Pattinson being the only key player announced so far. Rumors are continuing to circulate about who may take on the villain roles in the film – which may number as high as six – but nothing concrete has been announced as of yet.
While Warner Bros. is not hosting a Hall H session at San Diego Comic-Con this year, the studio still has a large presence on the show floor. Hopefully, some more information will appear over the course of the convention.
The Batman is scheduled to hit theaters on June 25, 2021.
