A fan has transformed Robert Pattinson’s Caped Crusader into the DC Comics villain, The Batman Who Laughs in an awesome new image.
Last year fans were shocked and intrigued to learn that Robert Pattinson of Twilight fame had been cast in the role of Batman. This had come off a trickle of news that saw Ben Affleck gradually step away from the role of Batman before leaving it altogether. But, it seems, that some fans have another Batman-related role in mind for Robert Pattinson. Specifically, that of The Batman Who Laughs.
Created by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo The Batman Who Laughs is an alternate universe version of the Caped Crusader and served as one of the primary antagonists of the Dark Knights Metal storyline. Specifically, the character is from Earth -22 and was one of many negative universes that were doomed to die. In some of these doomed universes, Batman had gone mad and did anything he could to survive. In The Batman Who Laughs case, Bruce Wayne was exposed to a more pure form of Joker’s gas, turning him into a warped version of himself, retaining all of his strength and intellect but also giving him the Joker’s lack of morality and warped sense of humor. Now some fans want to see Robert Pattinson take on the role of this version of Batman as well.
In a recent post, digital artist spdrmnkyxxiii shared his version of Robert Pattinson as The Batman Who Laughs. You can see the full image below:
