Variety reports Pattinson is in talks to play the dark knight in Matt Reeves’ new film “The Batman.” While still under negotiation, insiders say they are close to closing a deal.

Pre-production will reportedly begin this summer, and filming could start later this year or in 2020.

Pattinson has some big shoes to fill. Past Batmans include Ben Affleck, Christian Bale, George Clooney, Val Kilmer and Michael Keaton.
