Entertainment source Deadline confirmed the news, revealing that the Twilight star was a "strong choice" from the get-go. Nicholas Hoult of X-Men: First Class fame was also heavily considered for the role but Warner execs ultimately went with Pattinson.

Entertainment Weekly reports that while the studio has approved Pattinson, "negotiations are not yet finalized".

The project will still be helmed by Matt Reeves, contrary to some rumors that he stepped down. It will reportedly feature two Batman baddies in Catwoman and The Penguin. Batman Returns flashbacks, anyone? 

The Batman is slated for release in 2021.
