Robert Pattinson confirmed to star as Batman in 2021 movie

REPORT: Pattinson and Hoult Screen Testing for THE BATMAN

Robert Pattinson found fame following his role as Edward Cullen in the cult teenage vampire movie franchise Twilight alongside Kristen Stewart.

The Twilight actor will be playing the Caped Crusader in screenwriter-director Matt Reeves' upcoming superhero flick titled The Batman, Variety reported, confirming its prior reportage from May 16.

Pre-production on the next DC film is expected to begin this summer. Deadline also reported Nicholas Hoult ("Tolkien", "X-Men: Dark Phoenix") was in the running to play Batman.

In his time in west London, Hazard has won two Premier League titles, one FA Cup and a League Cup as well as two Europa Leagues.

Deseret News previously wrote about how superhero fans weren't thrilled Pattinson was circling the role, going so far as to start a fan petition to replace the actor before he was even cast. While he doesn't have the beefy build of Ben Affleck, Pattinson's version is supposed to be a younger guy who embodies the "world's greatest detective" angle of Batman that hasn't been at the forefront of the character in several movies.

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

The studio was reportedly "torn between him and Nicholas Hoult", according to Deadline.

In 2016, Affleck was attached to direct and star in a standalone Batman movie, but stepped away from both roles.

This film will in no way carry on the work that Ben Affleck did as the older Batman in Batman v Superman and Justice League.
