The Batman - Robert Pattinson IS Bruce Wayne

Robert Pattinson has apparently been cast as Bruce Wayne in Matt Reeves' upcoming The Batman.

http://collider.com/the-batman-robert-pattinson/


Cue the breaking of the internet...

Not a fan of the Twilight flicks, but he's been pretty decent in everything else I've seen him in, & I have a lot of faith in Matt Reeves' track record so far.

I will judge it when I see the movie. I just hope they try and do something different and focus of Batman being a detective.

Not sure you can judge him based on something he has been in, he's an actor, it was work. I have no strong feelings about the guy one way or the other, it isn't his fault my wife made me watch some god awful sulky vampire movie which wasn't a horror film.

I don't recall him acting badly.

I guess a Batman movie has about a 55% chance of being decent, I like Batman and always nice to see a new film.

They've gone away from a universe haven't they? So this is just a standalone Batman movie, hope they can dispense with an origin movie.

He's more than made up for Twilight with all the odd ball indies he's done over the last decade.

Guess,he needs a big hit to keep funding the indie films.

Well the internet hate seems to be that he was in twilight, something he did years ago, not really fair IMO

He is not a Batman, now as the Riddler he'd have a good chance or making it his own so we can forget Jim C's hammy performance.

Well with only one episode of GoT left, the internet needs to get heated up on something...

Could be worse, we were lucky all the whining on the internet stopped Hugh Jackson being cast as Wolverine!

Lesbian is far too narrow!

A gender fluid pansexual ethnic person.

Person.....person.

Won't anyone think of the vegetables, or how about a Batman Car movie where the car is shown as the true hero, obviously a gender fluid pansexual car with some kind of disability as well.

Of course they'd have to paint the car a different colour or possibly have it multi-coloured or able to switch colours. At no point should it be shown doing anything with any negative connotations while being entirely of one colour or gender in order to not offend anyone, or vegetables.

I hope they don't re-do the done to death (no pun) showing of the Wayne's murder again. Maybe mention it or have Bruce look at a photo but the audience knows the scene
