With the news that Robert Pattinson has been officially confirmed as our new Batman, there were a lot of fanboys and girls who were unhappy with the casting because they only see RPatz as Edward Cullen in the Twilight films.
Deadline reports it was between Nicholas Hoult and Pattinson and the studio was so torn as to who should get the role they decided to conduct screen tests in the Batsuit to help make their decision.
While most people remember Pattinson from his Twilight days, the man has made seriously good choices with roles in challenging indie films since finishing up as Edward Cullen in 2012.
Pattinson received rave reviews for Good Times, with the Hollywood Reporter comparing his performance to Al Pacino’s in Dog Day Afternoon.
For every one fanboy who doubts Pattinson can pull off the performance as Batman, there are so many more who have faith in the star, because they’ve actually seen his recent work.
If you need more convincing check out these films:
The Rover (2014)
The Lost City of Z (2016)
Good Time (2017)
High Life (2018)
Pattinson is currently receiving rave reviews and Oscars buzz for his latest film The Lighthouse, which was recently shown at the Cannes Film Festival.
I don’t know about you, but I’m very excited to see what RPatz does with his newest role.
