Earlier, Ben Affleck reportedly pulled out from the project in January while the principal photography of the film is expected to begin this Summer. Even the negotiation for the main lead role has not arrived at any conclusion, Robert Pattinson still considers as the top choice for the role. And if he could take the role, the Twilight actor will be the second-youngest actor who ever stars Batman in the silver screen. The youngest Batman is Christian Bale who appeared on Batman Begins in 2005.

Talking about Ben Affleck, he first appeared in DC Extended Universe as Caped Crusader in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016 and then Justice League in 2017.
