Former Twilight star, Robert Pattinson is in talks to play Batman in Warners Bros next film on the caped crusader. According to a report by Variety, the deal isn't done yet but is 'expected to close shortly'.
The untitled Batman project was supposed to be directed by (and starring) Ben Affleck, however the actor hung his cowl after Justice League.
Slated for a 2021 release, the film is being directed by Matt Reeves, the director behind the critically acclaimed Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and War for the Planet of the Apes.
If Robert Pattinson is confirmed for the role, he will become the youngest actor to play the iconic Batman on screen.
