Twilight Star, Robert Pattinson is the new Batman/Bruce Wayne

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

From being the world's sexiest vampire for an entire generation of teenage girls, actor Robert Pattinson is now all set to become the Batman.

Deadline, however, reported the star has not yet been confirmed, noting that director Matt Reeves and Warner Bros merely have Pattinson on a short list alongside Tolkien star Nicholas Hoult. The script is still undergoing some final polish, with pre-production slated to begin this summer.

According to Variety, the deal isn't quite finalised, but the trade's sources say Pattinson is expected to sign on the dotted line "shortly".

Although a few names have been banded about, it looks like Robert Pattinson could be next up to play the sought after Batman role. Pattinson is an interesting choice, since he's branched off into more interesting roles since his Twilight stint. Reeve, who helmed the last two (pretty decent) Planet of the Apes entries, was tapped to replace him. Warner Bros Studios who have the rights are yet to make an announcement for the same.

If he accepts the role, he'll be the second-youngest Bruce Wayne behind Christian Bale, who was 31 when he took on the character in the 2005 hit "Batman Begins".

"War for the Planet of the Apes" director Reeves has been on board to direct the film since January a year ago, following Ben Affleck's exit as both the director and...

The Batman is one of the most intriguing projects now being developed over at DC/Warner Bros.

The comments and headlines were clever, but some of the more thoughtful ones were either supportive or very upset that the icon would be played by Pattinson. He is now scheduled to star in Christopher Nolan's untitled next film co-starring John David Washington.

Whichever it ends up being - assuming someone else doesn't take the role - Reeves will be aiming for a 25 June, 2021 release date.
