For now, Twilight star Robert Pattinson seems to be the top choice to replace Ben Affleck as Batman amongst fans. And now new art has given us an idea of how Robert Pattinson would look as the Batman.
Twilight Star Robert Pattinson as Next Batman?
The name of Robert Pattinson sprung up amongst other contenders like Ansel Elgort, Noah Centinho, Jack O’Connell, Kit Harrington, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Logan Lerman and Armie Hammer. Affleck bid farewell to the role last month.
Plot Rumours For The Batman
We don’t know much about the plot details of Matt Reeves’ Batman yet. However, rumours suggest that a younger version of Batman will be in focus in the film. Reports even suggest that the studio is hunting for an actor in his mid-twenties ranging to early 30s. The film is also rumoured to have The Penguin as the villain. The film, however, will not be based on Frank Miller’s Batman Year One comics. It will focus on Batman as the world’s greatest detective.
The latest bit of fan art features Robert Pattinson and place him in a Christian Bale costume. Check it out:

Aquaman is now playing in theaters. You can find its official synopsis below:
From Warner Bros. Pictures and director, James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be… a king.
