Robert Pattinson is going from one bat to another bat, but this time as Batman.
The “Twilight” star is in talks to play the role of Batman for Matt Reeves in his upcoming superhero film, “The Batman”.
But let’s not get to ahead of ourselves, according to Variety, who broke the news “it’s not yet a done deal, Pattinson is the top choice and it’s expected to close shortly. Warner Bros. had no comment.”
Pre-production for the Warner Bros.-DC Comics pic is set to begin soon.
The news of the 32-year-old actor becoming the new face of Batman, is sparking debate and discussion on twitter.
Here are some of the Twitter reactions:

Watch Robert Pattinson in other movies than Twilight, everyone. He can play Batman. He's a great actor. I miss Batfleck too, but deal with it. pic.twitter.com/1w3ZviWMhg
