Edward Cullen could never.

Break out the black rubber 'cause it looks like ol' mate Robert Pattinson will be the next Batman.

Variety report the former Twilight star is in serious negotiations to play Batman in director Matt Reeves’ forthcoming film, currently slated for June 25, 2021.

Sources have told the publication that while execs have yet to cross the 't's and dot the 'i's, Robert, 32, is the top choice.

Which, ah... ain't going down too well across Twitter:

If officially cast, RPatz will be one of the youngest actors to play Bruce Wayne and will follow in the footsteps of nine men before him including big names like George Clooney, Ben Affleck, Michael Keaton and Christian Bale.

Only some of whom wore pants.
