After months of speculation as to who will succeed Ben Affleck as the next cap crusader, 'Twilight' star Robert Pattinson has been cast as the lead of the upcoming 'Batman' venture. Director Matt Reeves' who is helming the project was recently given a heads up by the Batman fans during the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con.
During a panel discussion at San Diego Comic-Con 2019 (SDCC), fans extended a message to the director warning him to not mess up his new film on the Caped Crusader. In a video message, recorded by music composer Michael Giacchino, the audiences can be heard screaming out loud: "Hey Matt! Don't screw up our Batman movie."
"You heard them. Don't screw it up," Giacchino says in the video.
Sharing the same clip on Twitter, Reeves wrote in the caption, "Nothing like a little encouragement."
Take a look:
After Ben Affleck stepped down as the film's director in 2017, Reeves boarded the project. Affleck, who took on the role of Batman for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" and "Justice League", will be replaced by the Twilight star this time. The iconic role is previously played by several other actors including Michael Keaton, George Clooney, and Christian Bale, among others.
Meanwhile, Reeves is critically acclaimed for his films like 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' and 'War for the Planet of the Apes'. Not many details about the Warren-DC project is revealed yet.
