Robert Pattinson, 33, is said to be in deep negotiations to play The Batman in Matt Reeves' new superhero film, according to our sister site, Variety!

Deadline reports that the role of The Batman remains uncast, but that both Robert Pattinson and Nicholas Hoult (Beast in the current X-Men trilogy) are the frontrunners to star.

Matt Reeves' long-gestating, out-of-continuity Batman film has been in development hell for quite some time.

The Batman: Is Robert Pattinson taking the title role?

Variety reports that the deal is not yet done but Pattinson is the "top choice".

But there is also plenty of support for Pattinson, with some pointing out there was similar hoopla surrounding Heath Ledger's selection as the Joker in "The Dark Knight".

The last we heard of the script, Reeves' plan was to veer away from rehashing the superhero's origin story - something sure to please fans who've grown exhausted of seeing it redone over and over again on the big screen.

Reeves, who worked on the last two Planet of the Apes sequels, took over Batman directing duties from Ben Affleck at the start of 2017. Robert Pattinson could officially replace Ben Affleck to play the next Batman.

Warner Bros. has yet to comment on the speculation.

"It's fun to watch the Pattinson backlash and think back to the 90s when us cinema fanboys talked the same shit about those two up and coming pretty boys, DiCaprio and Pitt", Cargill wrote on Twitter. In his post-Twilight career, Pattinson has nearly exclusively filmed weird, ambitious, lower-budget movies, and if he winds up playing Batman, he'll have even more industry clout to get those movies funded.

According to whispers from the USA overnight, he is the hot tip to replace Ben Affleck as one of the most iconic superheroes of all time.

Could Robert Pattinson be your next Caped Crusader? The film, which is expected to begin pre-production this summer, is tentatively scheduled to hit theaters June 2021.

Well, fans will just have to wait and see what casting decisions are made.
