Reports: Robert Pattinson to succeed Ben Affleck as Batman

May 17, 2019 | 10:51 IST | CineBuzz |

Matt Reeves is super close to naming his Batman.

Reeves has been working on the script for The Batman for some time, with an eye on a June 25, 2021 release date. He’s still working on the script, in fact, but this news makes it clear things are starting to heat up on the film, which he describes as more of a detective story than a superhero movie.

While most of the reports suggest that Robert Pattinson would play Batman, Matt Reeves mentally isn’t there yet and looks like Nicholas Hoult is also in the hunt.

From being the sex symbol to star in a movie like High Life, Pattinson has come a long way. He’s starring in Christopher Nolan’s next and stars in the Robert Eggers-directed The Lighthouse.

Nicholas Hoult, who stars in Tolkien and is about to open in the X-Men: First Class film Dark Phoenix.

However, things are yet to be confirmed and we will keep you updated.
