3 Reasons Robert Pattinson is an Inspired Choice to Play Batman

While nothing is finalized yet, all signs point to Robert Pattinson donning the cape and cowl to become the next Batman. Pattinson would play the Caped Crusader in Matt Reeves‘s The Batman, a fresh start to the character not connected to Ben Affleck‘s most recent incarnation. This casting is excellent, and many seem to agree. But there’s already some backlash.

Welcome to the Land of Lawlessness – Tombstone Arizona

Welcome to Tombstone Arizona, the Land of Lawlessness.
