However, there are some fans, who believe that Pattinson would make one hell of a Batman. He certainly has acting chops for it.
Write it down, this will end up much like Ledger’s casting. It’ll be met with a lot of skepticism and then he’ll knock it out of the park. He’ll be the perfect young Bruce/Batman. Let’s hope Reeves’ script does Pattinson’s acting skills justice. https://t.co/NZ7Efs9B9l

EVERYONE WAKE UP, ROBERT PATTINSON WOULD BE A PERFECT BATMAN, like seriously though the man has been on such a great streak with Good Time and High Life. He definitely has the charisma for Bruce, the darkness for Bats, and the overall acting chops to seamlessly blend the two!
