Robert Pattinson became a major heartthrob after he made an appearance in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. But his popularity received a massive hike after he starred in the Twilight series, making vampires look cool and millions of young girls root for a blood-sucking boyfriend!

However, the 32-year-old actor is about to achieve new milestones. According to sources, Pattinson is all set to play Batman in Warner Bros’ next, The Batman, directed by Matt Reeves. This makes Pattinson the youngest actor ever to play Bruce Wayne!

Even though WB hasn’t yet given an official confirmation, reports suggest that he is the studio’s final choice and is soon to seal the deal.

Ben Affleck, who previously played Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League, had earlier this year confirmed that he will no longer be playing the role of our beloved Gotham’s saviour.

However, the news didn’t go down that well with DC fans and they have taken on Twitter to express their horror for what’s about to come!
