  • Robert Pattinson at Cannes Film Festival

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.

What's more, Christian Bale played the character in Christopher Nolan's trilogy, "Batman Begins", "The Dark Knight" and "The Dark Knight Rises".

Matt Reeves is no stranger to blockbuster films either.

Already petitions have been launched calling for Pattinson to be replaced before he's even been officially cast.

While the insider hasn't revealed many details about the negotiation yet, they have confirmed that Robert is the top runner for the role. Who do you think the other four villains could be?

When Batman returns to the big screen in 2021, the face behind his trademark cowl will reportedly belong to the Twilight star, sources told Variety.

Robert Pattinson became a major heartthrob after he made an appearance in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

If the news is true, it will make Rob the second youngest ever actor to play the coveted role - with Variety explaining that makers of the show wanted to focus on a "younger Bruce Wayne". Let us know in the comment section below!
