Now, we’re probably going to get a few dubious reports of this ilk before Warner Bros. and director Matt Reeves select Ben Affleck’s successor, but according to the latest rumours former Twilight star Robert Pattinson is in the mix to portray the Dark Knight in The Batman.
This comes by way of BossLogic, a graphic designer who’s built quite the reputation for himself for his impressive fan art, who claims that he’s heard “some background chatter” that Pattinson is under consideration for the role:
A choice that I never would have thought to try but been hearing some background chatter about Robert Pattinson being looked at, if the talks (source) are true then all of our predictions were wrong 👀😁 This might be your new Bruce #thebatman #batman pic.twitter.com/cNDKeRBzyb

Since his role as the vampire Edward Cullen in The Twilight Saga, Pattinson has delivered a number of well-received performances in the likes of The Rover, Queen of the Desert, The Childhood of a Leader, The Lost City of Z, Good Time and High Life.
Nevertheless, one would suspect that, given his Twilight association, Pattinson’s casting would result in a bit of a backlash from some sections of the Batman fanbase. That being said, when has there not been at least some backlash over the casting of a new Batman?
