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

While sources say it’s not yet a done deal, Pattinson is the top choice and it’s expected to close shortly. Warner Bros. had no comment.

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.

Is this still apart of the main Justice League universe deal?

Pattison is a good actor, but I'm not sure I picture him at Batman/Wayne.

Actually, I think Pattinson would be much better as a villain.

Sure... that'll work.

It does seem terrible but its hard not to think of all the times people thought other Batman casting was terrible and wasn't.

Despite the Twilight films, I think Pattison is a fine actor. I don't see him being Batman, but go ahead and show me.

Didn’t they give Ledger grief before they saw his performance as Joker? Before that I only seen him in “a knights tale”
Yeah a lot of people complained about the gay cowboy being joker. Also imagine what it would have been like if the internet was around when Mr Mom was cast as Batman.

IDK what it is but when I think of Batman, I think of him as middle age/near end of middle age. Maybe it’s just Pattinson looks too young?

Just let him grow a scruffy beard and or whatever they did to, um, another superhero in another superhero movie that may or may not have been released this year :p

I’m fine with the casting. I have found him to be a good actor in some of the work I’ve seen of his. Internet always going to complain.

At first I was thinking Robert would be terrible and then I remembered Val Kilmer and George Clooney and I highly doubt he is capable of being that bad if he tried.

So he gets a pass for me.
