Robert Pattinson is making the full transition from vampire (ah, Twilight) to bat.
According to Variety, Warner Bros. announced the 33-year-old actor has officially signed on to play Batman in the upcoming film—wait for it—The Batman.
Now, Pattinson joins the ranks of Batman alums Christian Bale, Ben Affleck, George Clooney, Adam West, Michael Keaton and Val Kilmer. The Batman is an interesting choice for Pattinson, who has been digging his feet into trippy independent films like High Life and the gritty prison thriller, Good Time.
Preproduction on The Batman is slated to begin this summer, but no official filming start date has been set. Why? Well, the film isn’t due out until 2021, so there’s still plenty of time for Pattinson to perfect his Batman voice and find his perfect Alfred Pennyworth.
