Robert Pattinson Is Officially The Batman

Today it was confirmed that Warner Bros. has approved 33-year-old English actor Robert Pattinson to play the title character/Bruce Wayne in the upcoming film, The Batman which will be the first of a planned trilogy.

The film will feature a younger Batman, a major reason behind former Batman star Ben Affleck vacating the role, and will have a film noir tone focusing more on the character’s detective abilities.

Since his breakout role in the Twilight films, Pattinson has largely stayed away from blockbuster films. His credits include Maps to the Stars, Queen of the Desert, Life, The Lost City of Z and Good Time. More recently, Pattinson starred in High Life, a sci-fi/horror film that was released earlier this year.

The Batman will be written and directed by Matt Reeves (Cloverfield, Planet of The Apes franchise), produced by Dylan Clark (War for the Planet of the Apes) and is currently slated to hit theaters on June 25, 2021.
