Is ROBERT PATTINSON Replacing BEN AFFLECK As Batman?

A choice that I never would have thought to try but been hearing some background chatter about Robert Pattinson being looked at, if the talks (source) are true then all of our predictions were wrong 👀😁 This might be your new Bruce #thebatman #batman pic.twitter.com/cNDKeRBzyb— BossLogic (@Bosslogic) February 3, 2019

people: Robert Pattinson should play Batman— ibabysky (@Ibabysky) February 3, 2019
Affleck was originally going to write and direct the film but ultimately stepped down and handed everything over to Matt Reeves who wants a different approach. The Batman will hit theaters in June 2021.
