There have been rumors about ROBERT PATTINSON possibly being the next Batman for months . . . and now, he’s reportedly the FRONTRUNNER for the gig.  Edward???  Really? I’m gonna need a minute to sit with this one.

The “Hollywood Reporter” says Robert is a “top contender,” but it’s unclear if there’s an offer on the table.  It’s also unclear who else is on the shortlist.

Other rumored contenders have included Armie HammerNicholas Hoult, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson.
