Pattinson's Batman & Tyler Hoechlin's Superman Team Up in Fan Trailer

Robert Pattinson’s Batman and Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman from The Batman and Superman & Lois respectively team up in a new fan-made trailer. Throughout the decades, multiple iconic superheroes have been reimagined for the big and small screen. When it comes to the DC Universe, there have been a number of characters, whether they be a hero or villain, to get portrayed in live-action. Two heroes that have been featured the most in various live-action projects are Batman and Superman. For more than 50 years, the Dark Knight and Man of Steel have each been played by several talented actors, whether it be in a movie or on a TV show.

When it comes to Batman and Superman’s current live-action presences, the two DC icons are being played by Robert Pattinson and Tyler Hoechlin, respectively. Hoechlin, who has been the Last Son of Krypton since Supergirl season 2 in 2016, is currently starring in his own Arrowverse series, Superman & Lois, with Bitsie Tulloch as Lois Lane. The show follows the married couple’s family life while also doing their respective jobs as reporter and superhero. Pattinson became cinema’s latest Batman this year with Matt Reeves’ The Batman which opened in theaters last month.

With both Pattinson’s Batman and Hoechlin’s Superman being heavily beloved by viewers, some are wanting to see their characters come together. For those who want to see what a meeting between Pattinson and Hoechlin would look like, AListProductions has put together a special fan-made Worlds Finest trailer as the YouTuber bring the two heroes together in a crossover. The World Finest trailer depicts the first meeting of Hoechlin’s Superman and Pattinson’s Batman as they come together to stop Jon Cryer’s Lex Luthor. Check out the trailer below:

Pattinson’s The Batman became one of the latest DC movies to become both commercially and critically successful as Bruce Wayne took on The Riddler, played by Paul Dano. The reboot grossed $759.5 million at the worldwide box office as Reeves reinvented Gotham City’s vigilante. While it was expected, Warner Bros. officially greenlighted The Batman 2 earlier this week during their presentation at the 2022 CinemaCon. Superman & Lois continues to be one of The CW’s most successful Arrowverse series, having already scored a season 3 pick-up for the 2022-2023 TV season.

What is so great about the World Finest trailer is that this idea is not entirely impossible from happening and it’s all thanks to the Arrowverse. In 2020, Arrowverse’s Crisis on Infinite Earths event saw Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen come face-to-face with Ezra Miller’s iteration of the character in the DCEU for the first time. Not only did it serve as a historical moment for DC’s live-action properties, but it opened the door for crossovers between DC movies and TV shows. In theory, Hoechlin’s Superman and Pattinson’s Batman could, if Warner Bros. wanted to, team up in some fashion, even if they are in two separate universes.
