Pattinson is the new Batman!

‘Twilight’ fame Robert Pattinson has finally been roped in to feature in the forthcoming Warner Bros. film ‘The Batman’.

From featuring as a vampire in ‘Twilight’ to playing the caped crusader ‘Batman’, it seems Pattinson has a connection with bats and darkness. The actor has become the youngest actor to ever play Batman on the big screen. The film is expected to go on floors this summer.

Matt Reeves, the filmmaker behind the last two ‘Planet of the Apes’ sequels, took over directing duties for the DC superhero film after Ben Affleck stepped down from the director’s chair in 2017 and later stepped down as the ‘Batman’ altogether. Thus giving Reeves an opportunity to chose his own Bruce Wayne.

Reeves along with his ‘Planet of the Apes’ collaborator Dylan Clark, is producing the film. Following a disappointing performance by ‘Batman v Superman’ (2016) and ‘Justice League’ (2017), Reeves is taking time to come up with a properly polished script.

The film is scheduled to hit the big screens on June 25, 2021.
