Warner Bros. has closed a deal for Twilight actor Robert Pattinson to play the Caped Crusader in The Batman, Variety reported on Friday.

Pattinson, 31, inherits the role from Ben Affleck, whose tenure came to an end after the critical and commercial disappointments of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League.

Pattinson’s first film as the billionaire crime fighter Bruce Wayne, who assumes a full-body black costume to battle baddies in Gotham City, will be titled The Batman, directed by Matt Reeves, and set for release in June 2021. Originally scheduled to start shooting in 2017, the film will be the first solo Caped Crusader film to form part of the DC Extended Universe.

    And that’s when the Batman brand got killed. RIP Batman. Christian Bale can never be replaced. Ben Affleck did an admirable job but and now this…I mean good day for Pattinson and twilight fans…childish ones. Warner Bros. has lost its marbles.
