Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League director Zack Snyder seems to have blessed Robert Pattinson’s casting as the new Batman.
Since his departure from the DC Extended Universe, Zack Snyder has become one of the favorite personalities for several DC fans. Since his sudden and shocking exit from Justice League due to a family tragedy, Zack Snyder has been working on his own production company, The Stone Quarry. The filmmaker has also been teasing parts and bits of what many people have dubbed the Justice League Snyder Cut.
Nevertheless, Zack Snyder has been very supportive of the content that comes out for the DCEU, praising directors like James Wan and Patty Jenkins for Aquaman and Wonder Woman, respectively. This time around, Zack Snyder did something that Snyder Cut fans maybe won’t get. For those of you who don’t know, Zack Snyder almost exclusively uses the social network called Vero to engage with fans. After a user shared the news the Robert Pattinson was cast as Batman, Zack Snyder liked the post, seemingly approving Warner Bros. and DC’s decision.

What do you think about Zack Snyder’s blessing on Robert Pattinson’s cast as Batman? Sound off in the comment section down below!
Robert Pattinson has reportedly been cast in the Bruce Wayne/Batman role as Ben Affleck’s replacement. However, Warner Bros. has yet to formally announce its new Caped Crusader. Robert Pattinson’s reported casting as Batman was met with largely mixed reactions from fans. Some want to see other actors cast instead of Robert Pattinson, mainly because of his past as a vampire in the Twilight series. Others want to give Robert Pattinson a chance to show he’s worthy of the part. The truth is that Robert Pattinson’s career as an actor has taken him far away from his role as Edward Cullen and he has shown his acting ability time and time again in the past few years. In any case, we’ll have to wait and see if Robert Pattinson ultimately gets to be our new Batman after Ben Affleck’s exit from the role.
Plot details for Matt Reeves’ The Batman are still under wraps, though the project seems to be centered on a younger Caped Crusader as he tackles several of his more traditional enemies such as The Penguin and Catwoman. While Warner Bros. is set to restart the character’s story on the big screen, Matt Reeves has confirmed that his film will not be directly based on Frank Miller’s Year One comic. Matt Reeves’ The Batman is also allegedly a full trilogy, much like the one Christopher Nolan directed with Christian Bale as Batman.
Stay tuned for the latest news on Zack Snyder, Robert Pattinson and the future of the DC Extended Universe.

The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be… a king.
