Rob Pattinson as The Next Batman, Yes or No?

Known always for his romantic role, now the handsome actor Robert Pattinson is rumored to be acting as the black-robed superhero, Batman.

According to Variety, Robert Pattinson is in negotiations to play in Matt Reeves’s superhero film, ‘The Batman’, which will be screened in theaters starting from June 25, 2021.
Although there is no official agreement yet, Variety also says the ‘Twilight’ star is predicted to be the main choice to act as Bruce Wayne’s alter ego. This news was immediately welcomed by various reactions from netizens. Some have come to support this but there are also those who disagree that Pattinson is going to be the new Batman. Let’s go through some pros and cons of him being the next Batman and it’s all up to you to take any side you want.
Pros:
  1. He’s going to be a good change for the role of Batman with his youthful charisma, since we all know Batman with his stiff character.
  2. He already has the potential to own a superhero role with just the look of his face, his height and also the shape of his body, it’s about time.
  3. Rob could carry the emotional character that Bruce Wayne has, which we can see from his past movies.
  4. If true, Rob Pat would be the second youngest actor to play Batman after Christian Bale, which means we can get to see the younger version of Bruce Wayne yet again.
  5. It’s going to be a chance for him to redeem his stereotype character as Edward Cullen, since the Batman movie is surely a big hit.
Cons:
  1. Batman is usually portrayed as mysterious, the cool guy, but Rob is too flamboyant.
  2. Rob always known for his boyish roles, so it doesn’t match the mature character of Batman.
  3. Robert’s career has already overshadowed by his character in ‘Twilight’ and he couldn’t seem to surpass it.
  4. People already think that Rob is too mainstream. This year he already booked for so many projects so it’s hard for him to dedicate himself to portray such a beloved character.
  5. Having competitions as Nicholas Hoult and Armie Hammer, Rob’s portfolio is not as convincing as theirs, since the two have way more positive reviews for their acting skills compared to Rob’s.
