Robert Pattison Confirmed To Play Batman

Former Harry Potter & Twilight star Robert Pattison has tonight been confirmed as taking over the role of Batman. The actor along with fellow Brit Nicholas Hoult have been the two frontrunners for the role, with both taping for Warner Bros and now Robert Pattison has closed a deal for the role.

Having played the starring role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League, Ben Affleck made the decision to step away from the famous role, and that presented for Batman to be revised into a younger character. For iconic properties such as Batman, Superman and Doctor Who, recasts and new takes on the characters are fairly common & seen as a way to keep the story fresh and bring a new audience to the story.

Robert Pattison of course starred in Harry Potter & The Goblet of Fire before rising to worldwide fame as Edward Cullen in the Twilight movie saga. Since that wrapped Pattison has been keeping busy, albeit with smaller budget movies and the upcoming Christopher Nolan movie.
