Jason Momoa has said he is “really stoked” about Robert Pattison’s casting in the upcoming Batman movie.

When it was announced that Pattison would be the next actor to step inside the Batmobile, fans were divided. While many were delighted by the news, others were skeptical about the Twilight star’s suitability for the role.

DC star Jason Momoa, however, has shared his excitement about Pattison taking on the role. Momoa plays Aquaman in the DC extended universe. Although the superheroes are part of the same comic franchise, it seems unlikely that the actor’s paths will cross. Nonetheless, Momoa has said that he is “really stoked” about the new Batman casting.

Momoa told Entertainment Tonight: “I’m really stoked. He’s a good man, he’s a great actor. I’m excited about the whole thing.”

When asked about the odds of his and Pattison’s characters crossing paths, he said: “I mean, it’d be awesome, but I don’t think it’s going that way. Let’s just let them do their thing and I’ll do my thing.”

The Batman will be released June 25, 2021.
