After months of speculation as to who will succeed Ben Affleck as the next cap crusader, rumours suggest that 'Twilight' star Robert Pattinson has been cast as the lead in Matt Reeves' upcoming, 'The Batman'. Affleck played the sullen superhero in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” “Suicide Squad,” and “Justice League”; the two-time Oscar winner was also originally set to helm “The Batman” in addition to starring.
Along with Pattison's role in Christopher Nolan’s untitled new project, it marks a major return to big-budget fare for the “Twilight” star after several years of collaborating with revered auteurs on movies like “Good Time” and “High Life.”Meanwhile, with talks of the ''Twilight'' star being the new crusader, Twitter is filled with reactions of fans expressing their delight.
After Ben Affleck retired from the franchise, another Hollywood actor volunteered to take on that role and it was none other than singer-songwriter Nick Jonas. As incredulous as it sounds, Jonas actually commented his name in an Instagram post that was debating on who should play the next Batman. Taking to the photo-sharing platform, he simply commented, "First name Nick. Last name Jonas."
