Were you wondering who was going to replace Ben Affleck as Batman in the upcoming Batman flick from Warner Bros.? Wonder no more.
Director Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. have apparently agreed to hire Robert Pattinson as the next Batman. It’s a bit of a surprising move and if the deal goes through, Pattinson will be the youngest actor to ever play the superhero at just 33-years-old.
That being said, Pattinson is not your typical 33-year-old actor. He has completely reinvented himself after shooting to worldwide fame thanks to the ‘Twilight‘ franchise.
He has focused on mainly indie flicks lately and has proven himself to be a superb actor.That being said, Affleck is also a great actor and his turn at Batman didn’t quite go as planned.
Filming on this new Batman movie will reportedly start in late 2019 or early 2020.
Last we heard, it’s expected to hit theaters June 25, 2021. I know this news hasn’t been confirmed, but I can’t stop myself from getting excited. I’m really pumped to see what Pattinson can bring to the table.
