Former DC Comics artist and the creator of Cyberfrog Ethan Van Sciver reacted to the news of Robert Pattinson being reportedly cast as Batman in Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. upcoming The Batman film.

Van Sciver took to Twitter to post multiple images of what Pattinson could look like as Batman in the film. Prepare to laugh.

Fans were quick to react to the images with a number of Sparkling Batman references clearly making fun of Pattinson’s role in Twilight, where the Vampires sparkle.

Pattinson known for his portrayal of Edward Cullen in the Twilight series has gone on to star in a number of films attempting to distance himself from being typecast. He starred in Maps to the Stars, The Lost City of Z, Good Time, and High Life. The actor is expected to star in an untitled Christopher Nolan project. He can most recently be seen playing Ephraim Winslow in The Lighthouse. He will also appear in The King as The Dauphin of France, The Devil All The Time as Preston Teagardin, and Waiting for the Barbarians as Mandel.

What do you make of Van Sciver’s imagining of Robert Pattinson? Do you think Pattinson will make a good Batman? Or has Warner Bros. made a massive mistake?
