Published May 17, 2019The future of Matt Reeves' The Batman has been in question ever since Ben Affleck stepped down from its titular role. Now, however, it looks as if Warner Bros. has found a replacement in one Robert Pattinson.
According to Variety, Pattinson is in the final stages of negotiation for the role. It's not a done deal, but he's said to be the top choice. He certainly has a pale complexion befitting the Batcave.
Warner Bros. would not respond to requests for comment, but the company is expected to close the deal soon, as The Batman is meant to begin production this summer.
The film has a release date of June 25, 2021.
