Robert Pattinson could play the Caped Crusader in the upcoming The Batman flick slated for a June 25, 2021 release. Pattinson is next in line to play the DC Comics superhero after Ben Affleck last played Bruce Wayne in 2017’s Justice League. Pattinson is in talks to play Batman in the Matt Reeves led project, according to Variety. Back in January it was reported that Affleck was out of the project which he was originally set to star in, write, and direct. According to Variety’s sources negotiations are not fully complete but Pattinson is the top choice and the deal is expected to close shortly.
