Sorry, Edward Cullen fans, but Robert Pattinson may be taking on another legendary character. Which one, you ask? Well, prepare to be shook because there’s a high possibility he’ll be the next Batman. Uh, what?
You heard that right, you guys! According to Variety, the actor is currently in the negotiation process, and if all goes as planned, he will star in the upcoming superhero flick. As of now, the movie is expected to hit theaters on June 25, 2021, so yeah, we’ve got a while.
Even though we have ways to go, we’re stoked to hear that one of our all-time favorite teen heartthrobs in history is getting cast in not just any role, but an iconic one such as Batman. Sure, sources told the outlet that nothing is confirmed quite yet, but if you ask us, it’s an absolute no brainer.
If the deal ultimately does go through, we can’t wait to see some behind-the-scenes photos from the set. And luckily, we probably won’t have to wait too long! Variety said that pre-production on the DC Comics film is expected to start this summer, so it’s safe to say that moves are actually being made.
So how did the 33-year-old even come into consideration for the part in the first place? Great question! And TBH, we’re not really sure. What we do know, however, is that Ben Affleck passed on his directing duties to Matt Reeves after 2017’s Justice League, and he’s now able to select his very own Bruce Wayne. WOW.
Whether you’re interested in superhero movies or not, you have to admit that this is pretty incredible news. We mean, we haven’t seen R.Patz in anything this big in a while, and we couldn’t be more excited to see him step back into the spotlight.
Just promise us one thing, Rob! When you’re done being Batman, please, please, please return to your Twilight roots. Diehard twi-hards are still around and they need you!
