SWITZERLAND, MAY 17 – Hollywood actor Robert Pattinson has been revealed to be the new Batman. The Twilight movie star will be playing the character of the Gotham city hero in the forthcoming superhero movie, which is scheduled for release on 25 June, 2021. 

According to Variety, Pattinson is the top choice for the role. Pre-production is expected to begin this summer.

Speculation over who would take over as the caped crusader has been at frenzy point since Ben Affleck passed directing duties over to Reeves and also stepped down from the title role.

A coinciding report in Deadline said that Nicholas Hoult was also in the running, but both sources suggest that Pattinson is the strong favourite. 

Both British actors were early suggestions for the role on several media and fan-made lists.

Mat Reeves will produce The Batman with his Planet of the Apes collaborator Dylan Clark.
