After Ben Affleck opted out The Dark Knight franchise, there have been some eyeballs eyeing the Bruce Wayne character. From Nick Jonas last week teasing fans that he will be the next Batman, to now Robert Pattinson, fans are all the craze for the next Batman replacement. And this surprise choice for the bad-ass millionaire of Gotham from fans this time it is our very own vampire, Robert Pattison aka Edward Cullen. While many are not much a fan of witnessing Pattinson as the new Bruce Wayne, some new fan art that has surfaced online proves otherwise.
Artist Bosslogic, who very regularly does renditions of various actors in rumoured or newly cast roles, recently decided to give his art a touch of Pattison as Batman and fans are convinced. The rendition shows the actor against a wall in a polished fancy suit, with his shadow taking the form of his alter ego's silhouette and had this to say about it in his caption.
‘’A choice that I never would have thought to try but been hearing some background chatter about Robert Pattinson being looked at, if the talks (source) are true then all of our predictions were wrong. This might be your new Bruce #thebatman #batman’’.

With rumours that the filmmakers are deciding on a younger actor stepping into the role, and with DC being able to convince Joaquin Phoenix to join their Todd Philips directed Joker movie, the possibility of Pattinson becoming the next Bruce Wayne should not be erased. Apart from Pattinson, some other celebs who are reported to be a Bruce Wayne replacement are Armie Hammer, who already has a history with the role. In 20018, he was chosen by director George Miller to play the character in cancelled blockbuster Justice League: Mortal which he later confessed he’s glad it didn’t happen since he feels he was too young to do the character justice.
