A new piece of fan art imagines Twilight alum Robert Pattinson replacing Ben Affleck as Batman with a DC Rebirth-inspired Batsuit with a white-eyed cowl.
Robert Pattinson is officially confirmed to replace Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne in The Batman, which is being written and directed by Cloverfield and War for the Planet of the Apes helmer Matt Reeves. Although Ben Affleck announced his exit from the role in February of this year, production on the project is not expected to begin until 2020 as Robert Pattinson is currently working on Christopher Nolan’s Tenet. It still may be some time before we see the new Batsuit for Robert Pattinson’s Batman, but that’s not enough to stop fans from imagining what the 33-year-old actor could look like as Ben Affleck’s Batman successor.
Thanks to artwork by digital artist Jaxson Derr, we can get an idea as to how Robert Pattinson could look replacing Ben Affleck as Batman with DC Rebirth-inspired Batsuit featuring the classic white-eyed cowl. Check out the artwork below.

Plot details for The Batman are being kept under lock and key. Previous rumors once pointed to an earlier version of the script featuring Ben Affleck bookending the movie as his current Batman while it introduced a younger version of the iconic character, played by Robert Pattinson. But with Ben Affleck retired from the role, Robert Pattinson has officially replaced the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League star as the DC Extended Universe’s Bruce Wayne.
While details are slim, The Batman helmer Matt Reeves has confirmed that the Robert Pattinson movie is not based on Frank Miller’s acclaimed Year One comic and will emphasize the hero as the world’s greatest detective more than previous films have in the past. It is expected to be the first chapter in a new movie trilogy with Robert Pattinson as Batman.
Last month, Greig Fraser joined The Batman as its new cinematographer. His previous work includes Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Lion, and Zero Dark Thirty. He also shot the 2010 remake of Let Me In, which was written and directed by Reeves.
Matt Reeves’ The Batman is one of the many projects currently being developed by Warner Bros. and DC. These projects include The Flash standalone film, Green Lantern Corps, Black Adam, Cyborg, Supergirl, New Gods, and Nightwing.
Stay tuned for the latest news on Robert Pattinson, Ben Affleck, The Batman and the future of the DC Extended Universe!
