Batman Is Getting A Star On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame

The Hollywood Walk of Fame is about to have a new addition in the form of the Caped Crusader. Yep, that's right - Batman himself.

Variety reported that a new list of honorees has been announced by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce's Walk of Fame Selection Committee.

Nominees were brought to the attention of the committee from every branch of the entertainment industry including television, live theatre, radio and film.

Among those chosen the motion picture category among Batman are Julia Roberts, Spike Lee, Mahershala Ali and Chris Hemsworth.

When it comes to the television equivalent Andy Cohen, Wendy Williams, Christina Applegate and Terry Crews have all made the chop.

In the music category 50 Cent, Alicia Keys and Billy Idol are among those who will get a star.

In a statement, selection committee chair and Walk of Famer Vin Di Bona said: "This year's choices were particularly unique. We were able to recognise the talents of 35 artists who have already built a legacy here in Hollywood.

"Also, we were able to celebrate many new talented artists who've touched our hearts in film, television, radio and a variety of musical categories."

Dates have not been scheduled for these star ceremonies. Recipients have two years to schedule star ceremonies from the date of selection.

When it comes to Batman, Robert Pattinson has apparently been given the green light to play the superhero.

The British actor has been approved by Warner Bros. and will don the black cape and tights in the next film, due for release in two years' time. Just after the character gets the coveted star.

Rumours have surrounded the 33-year-old for some time, linking him with the iconic role, but according to Deadline, he has now been given the all-clear by studio bosses.

It's understood Warner was torn between Pattinson and fellow Brit Nicholas Hoult (who starred in Skins, Mad Max: Fury Road and Marvel's X-Men movies), speaking to the pair of them about the role before making their decision.

If the news is true, it will make Pattinson the second youngest ever actor to play the coveted role - with Variety explaining that makers of the show wanted to focus on a 'younger Bruce Wayne'. Christian Bale just pipped him to the post, when he began filming at the age of 30.
