The funniest memes about Robert Pattinson in ‘The Batman’ suit
When Robert Pattinson was announced as the new Batman, many were skeptical. Some still associate Pattinson with his role as sexy vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight movies. Since Twilight, Pattinson has proven he’s a talented actor who should be taken seriously.
During DC Fandome, a panel on The Batman movie gave fans a two-minute teaser showing Pattinson as Batman. The reactions toward this trailer have mostly been positive, but the internet still wanted to have some fun with it. Take a look at some of the funniest memes about Pattinson’s upcoming role in The Batman.
It’s not lost on folks that Pattinson, who played a vampire, is now playing a man who dresses up like a bat. This is how his Batman suit would look in the Twilight universe.

Don’t make fun of Pattinson

Fans are comparing Pattinson to Gerard Way, lead singer of My Chemical Romance, best known for their emo-rock songs. The idea of the Caped Crusader singing lead vocals in an emo-rock band strangely does make a lot of sense.

Nirvana brings a moody atmosphere
“Something in the Way” by Nirvana is a perfect song choice for this trailer. However, it does have viewers feeling a certain way.

People will do whatever it takes to get one-on-one action with Pattinson as Batman.
Cedric is Batman
Cedric may not have the best timing when it comes to telling somebody he’s Batman. Harry’s a bit busy battling Voldemort.
Emo Bruce Wayne looks like emo Peter Parker
Someone compared Pattinson’s Bruce Wayne look to Tobey Maguire’s emo Peter Parker from Spiderman 3. Now it’s hard to unsee it.
A surprising reveal
Turns out Edward Cullen isn’t actually a vampire – but actually Batman himself.

Saving people from cars
Pattinson is seen in the trailer saving someone from an oncoming car similarly to how he saved Bella in Twilight. Old habits die hard.

Batman’s music choice
Pattinson’s use of eyeliner makes him look full of angst. Also, the idea of Batman using his butler, Alfred, like Alexa is hilarious.
Proving people wrong
Spongebob may have had his doubts about Pattinson as Batman, but that trailer proved him wrong.
Whether people make fun of Pattinson’s Batman or not, there’s no denying The Batman trailer surprised a lot of people with how awesome it looks. There’s still a lot of time left before the movie comes out, so hopefully even more memes come to satisfy our bloodthirsty meme hunger.
