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!
Robert pattinson for batman?!? That’s why dc is failing

But there are many who claim that Pattinson would make a terrific Batman. The actor sure does have some commendable performances under his sleeve!
Write it down, this will end up much like Ledger’s casting. It’ll be met with a lot of skepticism and then he’ll knock it out of the park. He’ll be the perfect young Bruce/Batman. Let’s hope Reeves’ script does Pattinson’s acting skills justice. https://t.co/NZ7Efs9B9l

All those people complaining about Robert Pattinson being the new Batman clearly haven't watched any of his movies. pic.twitter.com/io6uWgrgO7

EVERYONE WAKE UP, ROBERT PATTINSON WOULD BE A PERFECT BATMAN, like seriously though the man has been on such a great streak with Good Time and High Life. He definitely has the charisma for Bruce, the darkness for Bats, and the overall acting chops to seamlessly blend the two!

I really do encourage the people who are upset about this whole ‘Robert Pattinson as Batman’ thing to go back and check out his work over the past five years or so – he’s more than proved he’s one of the most versatile and capable actors in Hollywood at the minute sooo?? pic.twitter.com/EyvE8Cm8rt
