The Race To Be THE BATMAN May Now Be Down To Robert Pattinson And DARK PHOENIX Star Nicholas Hoult

While Robert Pattinson was recently named as the frontrunner to play Bruce Wayne in The Batman, a new report reveals that he may actually be competing with Nicholas Hoult to suit up as the Caped Crusader.

Matt Reeves' The Batman will introduce a new Dark Knight to the DC Extended Universe, but it may not be Robert Pattinson who dons the cape and cowl. According to The Wrap's Umberto Gonzalez, The Twilight star and Dark Phoenix's Nicholas Hoult are currently doing screen tests, which points to Warner Bros. and Reeves having not yet made a decision.

Both actors would bring something different to the role, and this would certainly be an upgrade for Hoult after playing a werewolf version of Beast in the X-Men franchise for the past few years.

In the past, actors have missed out on superhero roles because they didn't look right in the costume, so Reeves' decision could come down to who looks better suited up as Batman. It's also possible that there are actors in the mix we don't know about, but as of right now, it seems Pattinson and Hoult are the frontrunners to become the new Caped Crusader. 

It's previously been reported that The Batman will feature as many as six villains, but if production isn't starting until early next year, we likely won't find out who is playing The Penguin and Catwoman for quite some time (those two have been named as being among the six according to reliable sources).

Who do you think would be the best batman?
