Well, well, well, looks like it’s finally official – Robert Pattinson is the new Batman!
After a few weeks of negotiations, Variety has confirmed with Warner Bros. Pictures that Robert Pattinson is the latest actor to drive the Batmobile.
The Twilight actor will star in a new franchise of Batman films, beginning with The Batman, directed by War for the Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves.
The trilogy will reboot the property after Zack Snyder’s Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League. X-Men: Dark Phoenix actor Nicholas Hoult was also in the running, but Warner Bros. and Reeves have put the fate of Gotham in Pattinson’s hands.Embed from Getty Images
