The Twilight Saga fame Robert Pattinson is in negotiations to play Batman in Matt Reeves' upcoming superhero film, jointly produced by Warner Bros. and DC Comics. The film, titled The Batman, is slated for release in June 2021.

While sources say that the actor is yet to sign on the dotted line, Pattinson seems to be the front runner for the role.

Reeves, the director of the last two Planet of the Apes sequels, assumed The Batman directing duties from Ben Affleck in January 2017, and has been working on the project ever since.

Affleck was the last actor to play Batman on the big screen in 2016's Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and 2017's Justice League.

If Robert Pattinson is cast, the Damsel star will become the youngest actor to ever play Batman on the big screen.

The film, which is currently in pre-production, is expected to go on floors in late 2019 or early 2020.

Pattinson, meanwhile, has Claire Denis' High Life, Robert Eggers' The Lighthouse, Netflix's The King, and Ciro Guerra's Waiting for the Barbarians.
