An impressive new concept design imagines The Batman star Robert Pattinson as Daniel Craig’s James Bond successor after No Time To Die.
With Daniel Craig saying goodbye to his time as James Bond after Cary Joji Fukunaga’s No Time To Die, fans have been debating for years over who should take over the mantle for the next era of the series. After one artist saw Christopher Nolan’s Tenet, they saw one choice: The Batman star Robert Pattinson. Although it could be easily argued that John David Washington could also make an excellent version of the spy, Pattinson is also perfectly suited for the role. However, he might be a bit busy with his commitments to The Batman.
The Batman star Robert Pattinson played the enigmatic operative called Neil in the Christopher Nolan science-fiction epic, and the actor masterfully brought the spy’s tactical and militaristic capability to the screen in charismatic fashion. But in the concept design from dogotal artist ‘Barrett.Digital’ on Instagram, Robert Pattinson dons a sleek white suit jacket and wields the iconic Walther PPK to become the next James Bond after Daniel Craig. The actor would definitely fit the role and his Tenet performance is a perfect example of that. And from what we’ve seen in The Batman trailer, Pattinson has the range to completely lead a franchise by himself. Take a look at the fan edit below.
