Unhinged BATMAN "Fans" Have Already Started Petitioning For Robert Pattinson Not To Play The Next Dark Knight

Well, that didn't take long! Just hours after Robert Pattinson was named as the frontrunner for the lead role in The Batman, some so-called "fans" have already started petitioning for him to be replaced.

Well, this is sad. It's only been hours since we learned that Robert Pattinson is seemingly the front-runner to take on the role of Batman in Matt Reeves' upcoming reboot, and the "fan" petitions are already flooding the internet. While the actor is an unexpected choice to play a young Bruce Wayne, he's spent the past few years receiving critical acclaim for a number of award-worthy performances.

Despite that, one petition pleads with Warner Bros. to not "make the Batfleck mistake again," while another suggests that fans should attempt to thwart the studio's plans by calling Pattinson a "complete joke" and "the worst casting ever" for the Caped Crusader. The deal hasn't even been made official yet, of course, but another petition already wants to "replace Robert Pattinson as the new Batman."

Armie Hammer has been named as a possible frontrunner as well, and considering the fact he's been a fan-favourite choice for a while now, it's no great surprise that one of the petitions out there says, "To cast Robert Pattinson or anyone other than Armie Hammer at this point would be a joke."

With Nicholas Hoult and Aaron Taylor-Johnson's names also in the mix, casting for The Batman isn't over just yet, but it's shocking to see that there's already so much negativity surrounding Pattinson - especially when the same was once the case for Ben Affleck and he's now credited as being one of the best big screen Dark Knights of all-time (despite some questionable creative decisions). 

Who are you rooting for to become the new Batman in the DCEU?
