Back in May 2019, when it was reported that Robert Pattinson has been roped in to play the Batman in the upcoming film directed by Matt Reeves, the internet went all crazy! Let’s not forget that when Michael Keaton was cast as Batman for Tim Burton’s 1989 film, fans were not happy. The same happened with Head Ledger for his role as The Joker in Nolan’s film. Pattinson wasn’t spared either and history repeats itself!

Fan or not, everyone had their own opinions regarding Robert taking on the mantle of the Caped Crusader. Robert played Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and his most notable role as Edward Cullen in the Twilight series.

Of course, he has been part of many movies and he has worked with James Grey, David Michod, Werner Herzog, and Claire Denis, a few to name.

The movie is releasing this week at your nearest cinemas and we are sure Robert is going to prove his haters wrong with his power-packed performance. But his casting was questioned by many and supported by few!

His previous work didn’t stop fans from taking over Twitter to be blunt about their opinions! Let us look back at some of the reactions which we just can’t forget

1. Marvel doesn’t feel threatened

2. It was Predicted

3. Everyone Needs To Respect His Talent

4. Just Concentrate on that strong sharp chin

5. Stop Calling Him Out for Twilight! He hates it more than us.

6. They know his true potential!

7. Let’s Not Underestimate him, we did that mistake with Heath Ledger!

8. Let’s Not Forget How Talented He Is

9. Erm…

10. It’s A Party
