Adstoppi Blog | Twilight's Robert Pattinson is reportedly the new Batman

Published by:


Twilight heartthrob-turned-arthouse darling Robert Pattinson is Warner Bros.’ next Batman.

Variety reported on Friday that Pattinson would play the vigilante in a planned standalone movie called The Batman, helmed by War for the Planet of the Apes and Cloverfield director Matt Reeves. An additional report from Deadline suggested that Pattinson was Reeves’ preferred choice, but Warner Bros. executives weren’t entirely sold. The “studio was torn between him and Nicholas Hoult,” according to Deadline. Batman is a crucial franchise for Warner Bros., and the studio didn’t want to jeopardize it. There is a chance that The Batman could turn into a mini-franchise of its own, according to Deadline, with the supposed contract set to “include options on at least two more films.”

Pattinson is best known for his work as the vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight franchise, but he’s since established himself as an indie darling. He’s received critical acclaim for his work in movies like David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis, Claire Denis’ High Life, and the Safdie brothers’ 2017 film Good Time. Pattinson’s decision to join The Batman is surprising since the actor has previously said he’s “cautious” about entering more franchises after working on Twilight. But The Batman may be the perfect answer.

“The only reason why I’m cautious about big franchise things is you can’t make them ‘R rated,’” Pattinson said at the Berlin Film Festival in 2018.

Reeves described the film as a return to what Christopher Nolan did with his Dark Knight trilogy. It’s a different version than Ben Affleck’s take on the character from Justice League and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and the interpretation of director Zack Snyder, who remains convinced that Batman is an unrepentant murderer.

The Batman is currently scheduled for theatrical release in 2021.

When the brand "Nokia" is mentioned, most of us immediately think "phone." This is pretty much what it is known for. However, it looks like the company is branching out — or, at least, it's licensing its name to third-party retailers to branch out for it. As reported by Gadgets 360, Indian company Flipkart has been granted the use of the Nokia brand for its smart TVs — "a global first for the brand in the TV category," according to Flipkart itself, which is a major e-commerce retailer in the country. Vipul Mehrotra, Flipkart's VP of Nokia brand partnerships, adds, "Flipkart's understanding of the needs and behaviors of Indian consumers, and the power of its reach, will help it make Nokia branded smart TVs accessible and affordable." If the TV is all that he says, then this could be a...

SpaceX will launch private citizens into orbit

Published by:

SpaceX is planning to send up to four private citizens into space to take a trip around Earth sometime at the end of 2021 or in early 2022. The spaceflight company announced an agreement on Tuesday with Space Adventures, a space tourism business that has helped seven different private citizens take trips to (and from) the International Space Station aboard Russia's Soyuz rocket and spacecraft. Space Adventures said the price of the mission will not be disclosed, and the two companies were light on other details, like what kind of preparation the tourists will have to go through. The companies did say Tuesday that the tourists will fly in the human-rated version of SpaceX's Dragon spacecraft and that they will orbit Earth at two to three times the roughly 250-mile height of the ISS.

Reddit CEO and co-founder Steve Huffman called TikTok "fundamentally parasitic" due to concerns over privacy during an appearance at the Social 2030 venture capital conference this week (via TechCrunch). Huffman specifically called out TikTok's practice of fingerprinting to track devices as being of particular concern. "Maybe I'm going to regret this, but I can't even get to that level of thinking with [TikTok]," Huffman said at the event, "because I look at that app as so fundamentally parasitic, that it's always listening, the fingerprinting technology they use is truly terrifying, and I could not bring myself to install an app like that on my phone." The fingerprinting Huffman is referring to is a combination of audio and browser tracking to determine which users are watching and...

If you know anyone who says phones have become boring and predictable, point them to gaming phones. The Black Shark 2 Pro, which was announced this week, prioritizes some specs that you probably won’t hear the largest phone makers mention onstage, or at least not yet. The Pro is a slightly revised model of the Black Shark 2, which was released earlier this year. The updated version improves on the touch response speed of the display by around seven milliseconds, down to 34.7ms from 43.5ms. That might not seem like much, but mere milliseconds (factoring in the screen’s touch response speed and network ping) could mean the difference between a win and a loss in competitive play. For context, the newly announced Asus ROG Phone II has a latency of 49ms. This phone is also among the first,...

Apple is planning to release an iPhone that has three rear cameras in 2019, according to a new report from Bloomberg's Mark Gurman. The company's current top-of-the-line iPhones, the XS, and XS Max, have two cameras on the back, one being a portrait lens. But Android phone makers including LG and Huawei have already released triple-camera systems that allow for more creative flexibility and ultra-wide-angle shots. Apple is set to join them with the successor to the XS Max, according to Gurman, with the newest camera capturing a wider field of view. The third rear camera will also "capture more pixels so Apple software could, for example, automatically repair a video or photo to fit in a subject that may have been accidentally cut off from the initial shot." Additionally, Apple’s Live...

Facebook is certainly a high-tech company, but it’s not one you would necessarily associate with robots. However, as the firm revealed today, that’s exactly where its researchers are looking next — trying to see how experiments in robotics can further its work in AI. This isn’t uncommon for big tech companies. A lot of firms, including Google, Nvidia, and Amazon, use robots as a platform to explore avenues of AI research. Controlling robots is, in many ways, trickier than challenges like playing board games and video games. With these latter tasks, researchers have access to simulated game environments, which allows AI agents to play and learn at accelerated speeds. There’s no such shortcut for training robots. “The great thing about robotics is that it takes place in real...

Dutch airline KLM has apologized for a tweet that explained which of an airplane’s seats are the safest. In a tweet from Tuesday that has since been deleted, USA Today reports that the company compared the fatality rates of different airplane seats, and included a caption that read “seats at the back of a plane are the safest!” “We would like to sincerely apologize for a recent update,” the company said in a followup tweet, “The post was based on a publically available aviation fact, and isn’t a @KLM opinion.” The tweet in question was posted by the company’s Indian branch, @KLMIndia. It cited a study conducted by Time which claimed that the seats with the highest fatalities are in the middle of the plane, followed by seats at the front of the plane, with seats at the...
