That's right. As of tonight, we know that Robert Pattinson will be playing the titular character in Matt Reeves' The Batman.

Thoughts?

Coming out the same day as the Batwoman trailer releases. Interesting.

Ok, I'm a modest guy so I won't jump to conclusions and I will withhold judgment until I see the movie. Twilight was hot garbage but I've not seen his other movies to judge him as an actor.

My only concern is that he doesn't have the voice!! Bruce is meant to have an alpha voice even in his normal guise. He better deepen that voice!!

This is one of the oddest casting choices ever.

Sh&t. Every time the DCEU makes a step forward ( Shazam , Aquaman) immediately makes 10 steps backwards ( casting this guy as batman ) .Seriously this casting sucked

I don't think Robert is a bad actor in the slightest; it's just he is a hard guy to sell because of Twilight. Outside of all that, I don't think he really fits. This is like Ben affleck again, even though I warmed up to him, he didn't really fit.

@mexcomics2078:

This casting is inexcusable. Just like their Lex Luthor and Barry Allen.

It might've been better to cast him as Hal Jordan or Barry Allen.

@ghostodoofus2: Yeah, but that can be changed post, can it not? Wasn't that a thing the wrote in for Ben's Batman? Like a built in voice distorter. Just don't make him do the Bale grumble, it didn't work then.

Out of anyone thats been mentioned for Batman. Pattinson is the best actor. Hes been very very good. It's well deserved.
There is a reason why Nolan has cast him in his upcoming movie.

But unfortunately it hasnt been confirmed, hes just one of the frontrunners.

@mr_shazam0920: yup. DCEU sometimes makes great castings ( Zachary Levi , Gal gadot , Jason Momoa) and sometimes they make this stupid castings especially this one

Also why are people even doubting Matt Reeves? Trust him and give Pattinson a chance.

Pattinson's a great actor, he'll do fine. Kind of too short to play a younger Ben Affleck though.

He doesn't look like Affleck so that's a minus but I don't see any other downside.

He's a good actor. He looks dark and broody. With enough exercise he could be pretty buff. He is definitely good looking and he's as tall as Henry Cavill atleast. I think he could do well if given a good script and a good director.

@mrtrey:

Yeah I thought so too but then he's still as tall as Henry Cavill and I would say that's tall enough.

I'm willing to bet that based on your reaction, you haven't been exposed to him in anything outside of Twilight and maybe Harry Potter.

Is this confirmed by credible source? Not what I had in mind, but I'm definitely holding my judgment until I've seen the movie itself.

Good actor, but I don't think he should be Batman. He'd be a good Red Hood though.

@frozen: Yep. He is a great actor. I would love to have Nicholas Holt play Superman. He’s in the running for Batman as well so this isn’t a done deal yet.

As expected CV is the only place on the internet which is hating on this choice. Hes great for a young Bruce, now he just needs to bulk up.

Great actor, think he'll do wonders for the role, he'll be great as a younger bruce.

My top 3 were - Armie hammer / Jon Hamm / Robert Patterson. So I ain't complaining.

Let's see what he can do with the role. People mocked the idea of Michael Keaton in the role when it was announced, and he turned out great. While George Clooney and Ben Affleck were well received when announced, but some would say underperformed as the Bat. I don't like Twilight but I don't dislike Pattinson. We'll know if this was the right choice when we see a trailer in two years.

I'll admit that I can't see him as Batman. Yet anyway. But I've heard that he was very good in his post-Twilight roles, so I'm curious to see how he is going to perform.

Still, first a vampire, now Batman lol

This is fine. He's a good actor. People still just associate him with Twilight, a franchise he himself thinks is trash. The internet goes through the same song and dance every time.
