According to Variety, Robert Pattinson is the new Batman, and will be taking over for Ben Affleck in the Matt Reeves directed The Batman. The film is set to hit theaters on June 25, 2021, and is rumored to be the first film in a new Batman trilogy.
Production should begin this summer, but a shooting date hasn’t been announced yet. Reeves took over directing duties from Affleck in 2017, and will work on the film with Planet of the Apes collaborator Dylan Clark.
The Pattinson casting will surely rile fans up, just as Batfleck did, but in the end we should all calm the fuck down and just wait and see how the project turns out. We have far greater things to petition and get crazy over than who the fuck is playing Bruce Wayne.
