Collider has just confirmed that actor Robert Pattinson will take up the cape and cowl and play the Dark Knight in writer-director Matt Reeves’ The Batman. This controversial casting is right in line with essentially every DC hero and villain throughout history. The 33-year-old actor will join the ranks of actors like Christian Bale, Ben Affleck, Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, Adam West, and George Clooney.
Warner Bros. has slated The Batman for a June 25, 2021 release.
