Robert Pattinson, 32, and Nicholas Hoult, 29, are on a short list to play the Caped Crusader, Deadline reported on Friday, May 17. According to sources, Pattinson is all set to play Batman in Warner Bros' next, The Batman, directed by Matt Reeves. Beginning with 2011's X-Men: First Class, Hoult has portrayed Hank McCoy, a.k.a. Beast, in the rebooted Fox X-Men series, which comes to an end with Dark Phoenix in June.

In addition to the Twilight movies, Robert Pattinson is known for a plethora of good roles in smaller indie films including Good Time and High Life.
