Robert Pattinson is officially the new Batman.
Variety reports Warner Bros. has closed a deal for the “Twilight” actor to play “The Batman.”
Pattinson became a star following the breakout success of the five‑film “Twilight” franchise, in which he portrayed the vampire Edward Cullen opposite Kristen Stewart’s Bella Swan.
No official start date has been set for filming “The Batman.”
Ben Affleck starred as Batman in two titles directed by Zack Snyder: 2016’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and 2017’s “Justice League.”
Both films received mixed reviews and were a disappointment for Warner Bros. in its efforts to compete with Marvel Studios in the superhero realm.
