The Next Batman: Robert Pattinson Wins The Role

I don't know, he doesn't look anything like batman, or a vampire batman?

The Next Batman: Robert Pattinson Wins The Role

Patt is the Bat.

Robert Pattinson has won the role of the Dark Knight. It has been reported that Warner has approved Pattinson as the star of The Batman, the upcoming DC movie to be directed by War for the Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves.

According to Deadline, the studio has decided to move forward with Pattinson as Batman after considering him and X-Men star Nicholas Hoult. The news that Pattinson was the front-runner was first reported earlier this month. Deadline states that both actors were impressive contenders, but ultimately the studio went with the former Twilight star. The site also reports that DC is intending to make a trilogy of Batman movies with Pattinson in the lead. An official announcement is expected soon.

Pattinson is best known for his role as Edward in the Twilight series. He also appeared in two Harry Potter movies as Cedric Diggory, and has more recently starred in a series of acclaimed indie movies, such as Good Time, High-Life, and the upcoming The Lighthouse. He is also set to appear in Christopher Nolan's next film, the thriller Tenet, which is now in production.

The Batman hits theaters on June 25, 2021. The movie has been in the works for several years, with Ben Affleck originally set to star and direct it. Affleck stepped down as director in early 2017, and more recently confirmed that he was no longer involved at all, stating that he had "tried to direct a version of it, but couldn't crack it."

In a recent interview, Reeves hinted at what fans could expect from the movie. "It's very much a point of view-driven, noir Batman tale," he said. "It's told very squarely on his shoulders, and I hope it's going to be a story that will be thrilling but also emotional. It's more Batman in his detective mode than we've seen in the films. The comics have a history of that. He's supposed to be the world's greatest detective, and that's not necessarily been a part of what the movies have been."

Whoever plays batman needs to be emotionless. … so like 90 percent of actors can play him.
