Robert Pattinson Officially Named As The New Batman


After a week of rumours and speculation, it seems we now officially know that Robert Pattinson will be playing Batman.

Warner Bros. have got the Twilight star to sign on the dotted line to take on the role vacated by Ben Affleck though the film has already likely gone through a number of revisions since then. The project isn’t hanging around though with the pre-production set to begin this summer.

Matt Reeves (Planet of the Apes) will direct the film which is set to open on June 25, 2021. Pattinson will next be seen with John David Washington in Christopher Nolan’s latest film, Tenet, set to open July 17, 2020.
