Pattinson will be on test playing a role which only legends have played
This is the generation who has seen many superheroes movies with life-like VFX effects. Marvel and DC comics have created some characters that have become a part of our life. Be it the Avengers or the members of the Justice League, people have always gone to theatres in big numbers to watch them. Superheroes movies hardly fail at the box-office unless it is directed by Remo D’ Souza.
Batman character has a large amount of fan following worldwide
The Dark Knight Trilogy is still the favorite superhero series for many fans. Helmed by our favorite Christopher Nolan featured Heath Ledger, Liam Neeson, Christian Bale and Tom Hardy in pivotal roles. Joker played by Heath Ledger is still the best villain character we have ever come across.
Ben Affleck was to play the Batman again
The ‘Batman’ character has been played a number of legends. Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney, Christian Bale, and Ben Affleck has earlier donned the role of Cape Crusader. The one thing which is common in all these actors is when they played this role they were senior actors. Young Robert Pattinson has been cast as the new Batman at the time when has lost his grip with the audience. He is the youngest to play Batman which was earlier scheduled to be written, directed and played by Ben Affleck.
The failure of Justice League, Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice led Affleck dropping from the series. We all loved ‘Cedric Diggory’ in Harry Potter and ‘Edward Cullen’ in Twilight but Twitterati are not sure if the handsome actor will be able to play ‘Batman’ to conviction.
Here are some reactions:

Certainly not the Batman I'd imagine, but maybe he'll pull it off. IMO after Affleck, it's not like he's following a great performance.
