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.

Robert Pattinson Rumored To Play ‘The Batman’ For Matt Reeves’ Film 

According to Variety, Robert Pattinson is in negotiations to play “The Batman” in Matt Reeves’ forthcoming superhero film, which hits theaters June 25, 2021.

Pre-production on the Warner Bros.-DC Comics pic is expected to start this summer.

Reeves, the filmmaker behind the last two “Planet of the Apes” sequels, assumed “Batman” directing duties from Ben Affleck in January 2017 and has been developing the elusive project ever since. Affleck and Warner Bros. began discussing the actor-director leaving the Caped Crusader behind following “Justice League,” allowing Reeves to pick his own Bruce Wayne.

Reeves will produce “The Batman” with his “Planet of the Apes” collaborator Dylan Clark.
