Robert Pattinson to Play 'The Batman' for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. (EXCLUSIVE)


Sources tell Variety that Robert Pattinson is in negotiations to play “The Batman ” in Matt Reeves ’ forthcoming superhero film, which hits theaters June 25, 2021.


Reeves, the filmmaker behind the last two “Planet of the Apes” sequels, assumed “ Batman ” directing duties from Ben Affleck in January 2017 and has been developing the elusive project ever since.


Affleck and Warner Bros. began discussing the actor-director leaving the Caped Crusader behind following “Justice League,” allowing Reeves to pick his own Bruce Wayne.


A former “Twilight” heartthrob who has successfully turned to arthouse fare, Pattinson, 32, becomes the youngest actor to ever play Batman on the big screen.


Warner Bros., in giving Reeves plenty of time to develop the script, is hoping the latest iteration of the DC icon is done right, following the disappointments of “Batman v Superman” and “Justice League.”


Pattinson is about to shoot another film for WB: Christopher Nolan’s event movie co-starring John David Washington, which is set to open July 17, 2020.
