Oh, sure, people:
The former Twilight Saga stud as been solid in the function of Batman.

It’s most likely extra correct to say he sky-rocketed to fame, actually.
As the lead male on this world sensation, Pattinson was on the cowl of journal covers round the world and was one in every of the most talked-about celebrities on the planet.

Would you moderately see Nicholas Hoult, who has additionally been thought-about a front-runner for the function?
And what is going to Stewart about all this?!?
So many questions. Only a number of solutions proper now.
But secure to say this casting as the Internet buzzing… and that is one thing, proper?!?
