Robert Pattinson to play Batman in DC movie for Warner Bros

While a deal has not yet been made and it is unclear if there is an offer on the table, Robert Pattinson is a top contender play Batman in Matt Reeves' upcoming DC movie for Warner Bros. It is also unclear who else is on Reeves' short list, but other names that have been floated alongside Pattinson's over the last month have been Armie Hammer, Nicholas Hoult and Aaron Taylor- Johnson. Reeves, who was behind the recent Planet of the Apes trilogy, took over directing duties on the superhero stand alone after Ben Affleck stepped away from the director's chair in 2017. Affleck would later step down as the Caped Crusader altogether, a situation which allowed Reeves to revise the script for a younger Bruce Wayne. If the deal is finalised, Robert Pattinson will become one of the youngest stars to play the DC character. The makers have high hopes from the movie, seeing how both Justice League and Batman v Superman had tanked at the box office. Apart from the superhero flick, Pattinson is in talks to feature in another Warner Bros film which will also star John David Washington. The movie will be helmed by acclaimed director Christopher Nolan. Robert Pattinson will be seen in four movies this year- High Life, The Lighthouse, Netflix's The King and Waiting for the Barbarians.
