A new concept design shows The Batman star Robert Pattinson as Daniel Craig’s James Bond replacement for the next wave of 007 movies.
Although audiences will next see Robert Pattinson as a vigilante crime fighter guarding Gotham City in Matt Reeves’ The Batman, a cool piece of fan art pictures him as the next James Bond to replace Daniel Craig after he finishes up with the franchise after No Time To Die eventually arrives in theaters. Pattinson’s repertoire of roles so far has really shown off his acting range, with performances in projects like Cosmopolis, Good Time and The Lighthouse displaying just how far he can go.
The artwork comes from Instagram user ‘barrett.digital’ and puts Robert Pattinson in a Sean Connery inspired look with the white jacked and red lapel pin. The Batman star can also be seen sporting James Bond’s iconic pistol, the Walther PPK. It’s a much more clean-cut and suave look than what we’ve seen from Pattinson’s Bruce Wayne in the first trailer for The Batman. He’d definitely be an interesting choice to follow up Daniel Craig’s James Bond, that’s for sure. You can see the Robert Pattinson design below.
