After Ben Affleck chose to step down as Batman from the Matt Reeves directorial on the Cape Crusader, several names were being speculated to play the next Batman. From Spider-Man: Far From Home star Jake Gyllenhaal to Game of Thrones actor Kit Harington, several names were making the headlines. However, more recently, speculations were high that Twilight star Robert Pattinson will be donning the cape. And now, it has been confirmed that the actor is in talks to play the Batman in Matt Reeves in the new Batman movie. Yes, you read it right! Robert Pattinson could officially replace Ben Affleck to play the next Batman. 

Sources told Variety that the actor is in the negotiation to play the next Cape Crusader. While the insider hasn't revealed many details about the negotiation yet, they have confirmed that Robert is the top runner for the role. If the deal is sealed, Robert will have some big and heavy shoes to fill. The actor will become the second youngest actor to play Batman. The 33-year-old star stands behind Christian Bale, who was 31 when he joined the Dark Knight series. The announcement is expected shortly. 

Meanwhile, the project has been in the headlines for months now. Matt Reeves, who was last helming the previous two Planet of the Apes, will finally get down to making The Batman. The movie fell into his lap after Affleck chose to opt out of directing and later starring in it. The movie is expected to enter its pre-production stage this summer. 

The Batman is expected to start filming by the end of 2019 or early 2020. What are your thoughts on Robert Pattinson replacing Ben Affleck as Batman? Let us know in the comments section below.
