Robert Pattinson is officially our new Batman.

Warner Bros. has closed a deal for the actor to play the Caped Crusader in “The Batman.” film which is set for release around June 2021.

Affleck starred as Batman in two titles directed by Zack Snyder: 2016’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and 2017’s “Justice League.”

Both films received mixed reviews and a disappointed fan base which lead to unsettling feelings for Warner Bros. These two movies were Warner Bros efforts to compete with Marvel Studios in the superhero realm. Although the outcome of both films were not what Warner Bros wanted we still had Ben Affleck play a amazing role of Bruce Wayne and Batman. What was the fall for Ben Affleck playing the role was I believe the editing and the Character attitude change between the two movies.

So why a change? Why reboot the actor that plays Batman? With the success of Wonder Woman, Aquaman and Shazam why change it all now? To be honest I don't know... Rushing to compete with Marvel maybe? Who knows?

If you recall a while ago Henry Cavill was told to step down as the role of Superman due to contract agreements. So is this Warner Bros way of saying this is the punishment if your film doesn't do well? I don't know anymore. When you feel Warner Bros has their shit together they just go and make silly and rushed decisions.

NOW before everyone thinks this is a hate article against Robert Pattinson you are wrong! I think we should give an actor or actress a chance to play a role before passing judgment on someone due to their past films.

I think that this Batman movie is set in the future and Robert Pattinson is playing the role of Batman but as Batman Beyond, Terry Mcginnis.

Think tho, this is only a thought not a confirmed source

"If you want to know more about Batman Beyond keep an eye out for our Terry Mcginnis Origin story coming out soon!"

Even if Robert plays the role of a young Bruce Wayne I will still be fine about it and give the movie a chance. Will really will only know once the trailer drops to give us an idea whether it will be successful or a flop.

But before people start jumping up and down saying they don't want a "Sparkly Batman" just remember everyone hated the idea of Heath Ledger as the Joker and look at the masterpiece we received in the Batman film The Dark Knight. Heath Ledger was amazing even tho people were doubting his skill to play such a chaotic character. So before you start burning your Dc Comics in anger give Robert a shot, you never know what might come out of the 2021 Batman film.

On that note that's it for this article don't forget to check out our range of Batman statues and comics in our store!
