There have been rumors that Robert Pattinson would be replacing Ben Affleck as Batman. I think one thing wrong with thinking that is, he is in no way replacing Ben Affleck. Robert Pattinson would be a completely different era of Batman’s life. If you want to replace Ben Affleck, find someone closer to his age. This is my personal opinion.
I came into the Batman franchise with Christian Bale. Yes, I’d consider him “my Batman”. Prior to that I didn’t watch many of the movies that came before them.
One noticeable feature that Batman has in the films is his mouth. I’ve always noticed that the way he speaks, the way he looks when he speaks sticks out from other super heroes. Robert Pattinson has that type of uniqueness in his mouth that he could possibly wear the mask and be a believable Batman.
Robert Pattison also has the looks to be a solid looking Bruce Wayne. Of course, a younger Bruce Wayne. Now don’t get me wrong, at one point in my life I was an absolute die hard Twilight Fan. Robert Pattinson will always be Edward Cullen. We know that about him. Yet we as a viewer cannot block them into a certain character. People grow older, franchises end. New ones begin. If he is truly being considered, I will give him a chance. Robert Pattinson, if you have had a chance to watch his other films, is a solid, believable actor and can fill many roles. Batman would be no different.
Only time will tell who will end up playing Batman, if they are going for the younger, he is a good choice. True fans will give him a chance or whomever they chose to cast. Along with the casting, a great storyline is necessary to make it work.
