‘Twilight’ Star Robert Pattinson Is Officially The Next Batman
Twilight star, Robert Pattinson is officially going to be the next star of The Batman after all.
Ever since rumours began to make rounds that Ben Affleck may not stick around in the DC universe to play Batman, fans started to question and speculate who the suit will fit after him.
With a younger Bruce Wayne needed, it was recently reported that the frontrunner to get the highly coveted role is the former Twilight star, Robert Pattinson. However, shortly after that report arrived, several other sources pointed to Nicholas Hoult, Armie Hammer, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson still being in the mix. Most recently, it was said that Pattinson and Hoult were doing screen tests for the role.
More recent reports by Deadline says Warner Bros. has approved director Matt Reeves’ choice to make Pattinson the new Batman. He will be the seventh person to play Batman on the big screen in live-action movies.
Although Pattinson’s biggest role so far has been Edward in the Twilight franchise, taking on the role of Batman will be the next defining chapter of his career.
