Director Matt Reeves has found his Batman.
According to Variety, Robert Pattinson, best known as the sparkly vampire in the "Twilight" franchise but more recently renowned for a series of adventurous independent features by renowned filmmakers like David Cronenberg, James Gray and Claire Denis, will be donning the cape and cowl for the tentatively titled "The Batman," set to open June 25, 2021.
Not much else is known about the project, besides it being an (obviously) fresh take on the character, most recently played by Ben Affleck in a series of middling DC efforts and before that Christian Bale in the iconic Christopher Nolan-directed "Dark Night" trilogy. (Pattinson is starring in Nolan's new, untitled film.)
