Its official! Robert Pattinson is the new Batman. After we learned weeks ago that Pattinson was the favorite and closing in on the role, we got official confirmation today. Warner Bros did screen tests with Pattinson and Nicholas Hoult recently to help make the final decision on the casting, and Pattinson came out on top! Deadline also reports that it will be a three picture deal, showing all signs of a Matt Reeves Batman trilogy!
Pattinson will have a busy year ahead of him, as he is set to star in Christopher Nolan’s blockbuster ‘TENET’, which has started filming, and is set to release July 17th, 2020. The Batman is expected to start shooting in the early months of 2020, and is slated to release June 25, 2021. Matt Reeves will direct, with Pattinson now in the titular role.
