When Robert Pattinson was first cast as the new Batman, fans were intrigued. Ben Affleck has been playing the Dark Knight in both 'Batman vs. Superman' and 'Justice League' which has been met with underwhelming success and overall disappointment from fans. It was time for a change-up.
Audiences were pleasantly surprised and are generally optimistic about Robert Pattinson's casting. Ever since he starred in the popular 'Twilight' series, Pattinson has preferred doing independent films of his choosing, so there must be something special about this upcoming Batman movie.
