Robert Pattinson Frontrunner to Play Batman in Matt Reeves’ DC Movie

While a deal has not yet been made and it is unclear if there is an offer on the table, Robert Pattinson is a top contender play Batman in Matt Reeves’ upcoming DC movie for Warner Bros., according to a report in THR.

It is also unclear who else is on Reeves’ short list, but other names that have been floated alongside Pattinson’s over the last month have been Armie Hammer, Nicholas Hoult and Aaron Taylor-Johnson.


Reeves, who was behind the recent Planet of the Apes trilogy, took over directing duties on the superhero stand alone after Ben Affleck dropped out of the project from the director’s chair in 2017. Affleck would later step down as the Caped Crusader altogether, a situation which allowed Reeves to revise the script for a younger Bruce Wayne.

The Batman is set for a June 25, 2021 release.
