Robert Pattison As Batman???

A new challenger has approached the title of Dark Knight, and his name is Robert Pattinson. Yes, you read that correctly, the former “Twilight” star has been approached for the role as Batman in future DC Universe films.

Warner Bros. has commented saying that there is no deal in place yet with Mr. Pattinson, but he is set at the top of the list to play the caped crusader. Many fans are not looking forward to Robert Pattinson to play Batman and believe this is just a repeat of the Batfleck situation. Yet, there are some that feel that this may be just another repeat of the Heath Ledger joker situation.

In fact, Batman films have been plagued by miscasting and “believed miscasting” since the 1989 “Batman” film. When Michael Keaton was announced to play the titular character, it was met with some backlash from fans that believed the once famed comedy star could not dawn the black cowl. Then followed by miscasting within the “Batman: Forever” and “Batman and Robin” films. So, you can’t say it will be bad until you see it.

The film is set to release on June 25th, 2021.
