Edward Cullen aka Robert Pattinson as Batman would be… interesting
In Matt Reeve’s upcoming reboot of The Batman, we won’t be seeing Ben Affleck on the big screen, but Robert Pattinson will star as Batman.
Although details haven’t been announced yet, the new movie will most likely start filming later this year, and release in June 2021
This will be Robert Pattinson’s biggest role after Twilight.
Holy mackerel! Robert Pattinson to oust Ben Affleck as Batman https://t.co/nL9xIjsYcH

A lot of DC fans have mixed reactions to this news. Many petitions have already started to replace Rob as Batman, while others are saying he might actually fit the role perfectly. Take a look for yourself.
Needless to say, we have a lot of people who just aren’t happy with this casting
“Twilight star Robert Pattinson will be the next Batman”

Just when I thought I couldn’t like Batman any less. I hear Robert Pattinson is playing him in the next film. Yeesh

A lot of Twilight fans, however, are actually quite excited
Fans of the Twilight movie franchise don’t mind seeing Robert Pattinson as Batman, at all. In fact, they’re quite into the idea of Robert doing another broody, mysterious man role.

Robert Pattinson as Batman is phenomenal casting. One of the hardest working actors today. If you've written him off, please watch Good Time and come back to me. pic.twitter.com/ystyLrIuYM

Robert Pattinson is an amazing actor if you don’t solely judge him off Twilight alone.
Many are speaking up against the criticism from some people who don’t like the idea of a Robert Pattinson Batman
Twilight was a long time ago. They cast Beetlejuice and Daredevil as Batman too & both ended up working out. I love this choice and I’m excited to see what he does with the role. Robert Pattinson is one of the most interesting actors working today. https://t.co/a8Ag6cUr7x

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

Wow. I am getting a whole heap of prayers for Robert Pattinson to not be the new Batman.
I got the same prayers for Heath Ledger to not be The Joker. And Gal Gadot not to be Wonder Woman. And Michael Keaton not to be Batman.
So… no. Good luck Robert.

And then, we have Marvel fans who just think this is yet another move by DC to try and compete with the now-legendary MCU

Yes, Endgame was amazing, but c’mon guys, let’s give DC a little air to breathe. A lot of critics spoke up against Heath Ledger being cast as the Joker, and look how that turned out. From a wizard, to a vampire, and now to Batman, the journey keeps getting interesting for Edward Cullen, I mean Robert Pattinson.
What do you guys think of this casting?
