Following those first rumors that Pattinson would take up the role, there was an online call for Kristen Stewart, Pattinson’s Twilight co-star, to play Catwoman in The Batman. (This, simply judging by the side-by-side images of Stewart and Selina Kyle in the original Batman comics that circulated on social media earlier this month, would be stellar casting. ) Then, all they've got to do is find a bit part for Taylor Lautner, who has languished since starring as Jacob Black in the later Twilight installments, and they've got themselves a spiritual Twilight successor.
It seems almost rude to instruct Nicholas Hoult to put on the batsuit, only to tell him he did not land the role of Batman, but here we are: After two weeks of rumors that Robert Pattinson had been tapped to succeed Ben Affleck in the role and would star in the forthcoming The Batman, and after both actors screen-tested for the role (including, potentially, in the batsuit, according to The Wrap’s Umberto Gonzalez), Warner Bros. has finally selected Pattinson for real.
