Twilight fans may still love Robert Pattinson as Edward the sparkling vampire but it looks like the actor has a new avatar coming up.
The movie is expected to go into production later this year, so we should get total confirmation on who the new Dark Knight is very soon.
How do you feel about the Penguin and Catwoman making their theatrical return in Matt Reeves' The Batman?
Reeves, who directed the last two "Planet of the Apes" films, made a decision to veer away from Affleck's version and wants a Batman in his early thirties. At 29, Hoult could be the youngest-ever actor to be cast as Batman. "Warner Bros. had no comment", Variety reports.
According to whispers from the USA overnight, he is the hot tip to replace Ben Affleck as one of the most iconic superheroes of all time.
Pattinson upped his credentials among critics with the applauded indie Good Time in 2017, and has been landing solid roles since.
While the news of Pattinson's casting isn't "official" as of yet, it kinda is.
It's not clear whether or not Pattinson will join the current makeup of superheros with Jason Momoa, Gal Gadot, and Ezra Miller who play Aquaman, Wonder Woman, and The Flash respectively. It's also not going to be an origin story like many reboots and won't tie into the existing DC films. While the quality of the movies have gone up and down, in my opinion the track record of Batman casting has been pretty consistent.
Robert Pattinson is a bold choice for Bruce Wayne & I can't wait to see him in action. He is expected to close on the deal soon with the film now slated to hit theaters on June 25, 2021.
