Robert Pattinson is approved by Warner Bros. as the star of The Batman.
Matt Reeves will direct the trilogy of films this year, and the filmmaker chose Robert over Nicholas Hoult, according to Deadline.
The studio is said to have been “torn between him [Robert] and Nicholas Hoult,” and after a meeting yesterday and both actors on tape to support a decision, the Warner Bros. DC franchise will officially have Robert as their Caped Crusader.
Negotiations took place today and unCrazed can confirm that a deal was signed for Robert to play Batman.
Our sources say the reason behind their choice boils down to age, and due to the upcoming film tracking Bruce Wayne‘s formative stages of Batman, it was important to “focus on the 30s age bracket,” — but a further negotiation remains unsolved; will he want to stay as the star throughout the three instalments?
The Batman is slated for release in 2021, but details surrounding the future of the trilogy are unclear. Other Batman hopefuls included Jack O’Connell, Lucas Hedges, Jesse Williams, Jake Gyllenhaal, Oscar Isaacs and many more fan-favourites.
