Is Robert Pattinson Next to Play Batman?

Robert Pattinson as Batman These Underrated Performances of the Actor May Change Your Mind About His Casting

Now, Variety is reporting that we may have finally gotten a younger Bruce Wayne cast in Robert Pattinson of Twilight fame.

It is also unclear who else is on Reeves' short list, but other names that have been floated alongside Pattinson's over the last month have been Armie Hammer, Nicholas Hoult and Aaron Taylor-Johnson.

THR says Pattison is the top contender and that it is not clear if an offer is on the table.

Robert Pattinson is in talks to star as Batman in Matt Reeves' upcoming reboot The Batman, and perhaps inevitably, there's a drastic split in fan reactions.

Robert Pattinson is best known for his role as vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight series and as Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter series.

Robert Pattison replaces outgoing Dark Knight Ben Affleck who left the role reportedly over not being able to get the script right.

In recent memory, the Penguin has been heavily rumored as the chief antagonist in The Batman, but it's entirely possible for director Matt Reeves to further mine the rich 80-year history of publication enjoyed by the Caped Crusader.

And Robert Pattinson is already a superhero to several fans.

Pattinson will be the sixth actor to play the modern incarnation of the Dark Knight on the big screen since Michael Keaton starred in 1989's Batman. Or has Warner Bros. made a massive mistake?

It looks like Matt Reeves could be closing in on finding the flawless man to play Batman!

Twitter also has some opinions and, surprisingly, majority are positive.

Pre-production on the movie, expected to hit cinemas in June 2021, is thought to be starting this summer. He is about to shoot for WB: Christopher Nolan's event movie co-starring, John David Washington which will release in July next year.

Ben Affleck as Batman. I'm just having the hardest time with it, speaking personally. Can't wait to see Pattinson as Bruce Wayne!
