Robert Pattinson To Play ‘The Batman’

It is confirmed: The Twilight superstar Robert Pattinson to replace Ben Affleck at the new ‘Batman.’

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.

 

If he accepts the role, he’ll be the second youngest Bruce Wayne to Christian Bale, who was 31 when he played the character in “Batman Begins.” Pattinson is 32.
