Is Robert Pattinson a Downgrade From Ben Affleck's Batman?

DC has been scrabbling to remain relevant in the shadow of Marvel for years, their ownership of major characters like Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman continuing to keep them afloat, but just. The Batman torch has been passed to one deserving actor to another for decades, and the mystery around who gets it next is up there with the competition for the James Bond role (still TBD). Well, we have an answer: Robert Pattinson, of "Twilight" fame. The man can barely hold an American accent and seems a little too lanky for the suit, but maybe we'll be pleasantly surprised.
