After months of speculation about who would succeed Ben Affleck as the Caped Crusader, the news broke that Robert Pattinson will be cast as the lead in Matt Reeves’ upcoming The Batman.

Pattinson, 33, is said to be in deep negotiations to play Batman in the superhero film, according to Variety.

While it’s not set in stone just yet, it has been reported that Pattinson is set to lock in the role very soon. The Twilight actor is reportedly the entertainment company’s top choice, although Reeves is still finalizing the script, with an eye on a June 25, 2021 release date.

An insider at Warner Bros told HollywoodLife that “it’s 95% Robert’s film.” The actor gained worldwide recognition for starring in the massively successful Twilight saga.

Pattinson has four films opening this year, beginning with Claire Denis’ High Life. He also appears in Robert Eggers’ The Lighthouse, which bows at the Cannes Film Festival, The King for Netflix and Waiting for the Barbarians.

    Perfect, now I can finally bid adieu to this flailing enterprise. First it was to have to contend with Ben Affleck which was ok but nothing comparable to Christian Bale and now this idiot from twilight kids show on vampires and teen stupidity to be given a social superhero. Yeah right!
