He’s going from sex symbol to bat symbol. Sources tell Variety that Robert Pattinson is in negotiations to play “The Batman” in Matt Reeves’ forthcoming superhero film, which hits theaters June 25, 2021.

While sources say it’s not yet a done deal, Pattinson is the top choice and it’s expected to close shortly. Warner Bros. had no comment.

Pre-production on the Warner Bros.-DC Comics pic is expected to start this summer.

Reeves, the filmmaker behind the last two “Planet of the Apes” sequels, assumed “Batman” directing duties from Ben Affleck in January 2017 and has been developing the elusive project ever since. Affleck and Warner Bros. began discussing the actor-director leaving the Caped Crusader behind following “Justice League,” allowing Reeves to pick his own Bruce Wayne.

Reeves will produce “The Batman” with his “Planet of the Apes” collaborator Dylan Clark.

Pattinson was cast even as Reeves continues to polish a final version of the script.

A former “Twilight” heartthrob who has successfully turned to arthouse fare, Pattinson, 32, becomes the youngest actor to ever play Batman on the big screen.

Warner Bros., in giving Reeves plenty of time to develop the script, is hoping the latest iteration of the DC icon is done right, following the disappointments of “Batman v Superman” and “Justice League.”

No official start date has been set for “The Batman.” Insiders tell Variety filming could start in late 2019 or early 2020.

Pattinson is about to shoot another film for WB: Christopher Nolan’s event movie co-starring John David Washington, which is set to open July 17, 2020.

Pattinson has a total of four films opening this year, beginning with Claire Denis’ “High Life.” He also appears in Robert Eggers’ “The Lighthouse,” which bows at the Cannes Film Festival, “The King” for Netflix and “Waiting for the Barbarians.”

When he came by the Deadline studio with High Life director Claire Denis and his co-star Mia Goth, Robert Pattinson found it hard to articulate how much he enjoyed working with the acclaimed French director. Praising her for risk-taking as well as her humor—the movie drew gasps for its explicit nude scenes—Pattinson said the shoot was “like going to another country”.

‘High Life’ With Robert Pattinson & Juliette…
The collaboration came partly at the actor’s own instigation, he said. “I’d been pursuing Claire for ages,” Pattinson recalled. “We met in LA, and I just really liked her in the meeting. [But] it was just one of those really long processes—I think it was four years later or something when we did the movie, and it’s probably been an eight-year process [in all].”

Luckily, Pattinson was a little less tongue-tied when it came to describing his character. “I play a guy called Monte,” he said, “who is a convict who’s serving a really long sentence for a crime he committed when he was a young boy. Like everyone in the crew, he’s given an option to serve science by exploring black holes and also being kind of a human guinea pig.”

But even though High Life is set in space, and involves black holes and rocket ships, the director refutes the term “sci-fi”. “It’s a story I had in mind for a long time,” she said, “of people who are so far in space, outside the solar system, that there is no return possible to earth. It is not sci-fi. It’s just human people, people from Earth, sent so far [away] that going home is not even thinkable, and the idea was that something that is not obvious would happen—something that would be a taboo [on Earth] would happen, because the situation is very different.”

Pattinson, who stopped by the Variety Studio presented by AT&T to talk about his new sci-fi film “High Life,” joked that he “stopped mentally progressing around the time when I started doing those movies.”

“Whenever anyone says [‘Twilight’]’s their guilty pleasure, it’s like, you say guilty, what you really mean is just pleasure,” he said.

Pattinson continued that he doesn’t feel that he made a conscious choice to switch from a massive franchise to more arthouse films: “It’s just the stuff that appeals to me.”

He added that he doesn’t make choices flippantly. For “High Life,” Pattinson said it took him three years to get a meeting with director Claire Denis and then another four years passed with him attached to the film before shooting began.
“Pretty much everything I’ve done are these massive processes…I’m just hoping that these things happen and there’s ton of circumstances that come into play.”

He said the only factor that really affects his decision-making is that he likes to take roles that are the opposite of the last one he had.

When it comes to a “Twilight” reunion, Pattinson joked that “the amount of time I’ve spent moisturizing, I am ready to play 17 at a moment’s notice. Ready!”
