It’s Official: Robert Pattinson is the New Batman on Film – UPDATED!


Per DEADLINE, Warner Bros has made their choice and Robert Pattinson will star as Bruce Wayne/Batman.

The trade notes that director Matt Reeves and the studio plan for a trilogy of new Batman films that — and everyone read/listen carefully — will have nothing to do with Ben Affleck’s Batman from BATMAN v SUPERMAN and JUSTICE LEAGUE.  In other words, it’s NOT a prequel.  Reeves’ THE BATMAN will feature a Bruce Wayne in the formative stages of his career as Batman.


Personally, I am 100% on board and this is some very good and inspired bit of casting.
