There has been an uproar over social media recently after reports surfaced that ‘Twilight’ star Robert pattinson being seriously considered to play the next Batman. Robert who is the frontrunner to play the next Cape Crusader comes after Ben Affieck stepped out of the role. Ben was supposed to star and direct the next Batman film. Now that he has backed out, Matt Reeves has been roped in to direct the film.
Recently, Robert Pattinson was present at the 2019 Cannes film festival to promote and attended the premiere of his film ‘The Lighthouse’. During the media interaction, Robert was asked about playing Batman in the next film. However, the actor strictly replied that he will be only answering questions about ‘The Lighthouse’.
Robert’s denial to either confirm or deny the reports only adds to the speculations of him playing the next Cape Crusader. The film will most probably begin shooting by the end of this year or early next year.
