Matt Reeves directorial The Batman, which was released last year, introduced Robert Pattinson as the new caped crusader. His appearance as DC’s vigilante was one of the biggest talking points last year, But it seems that all going to change when Jensen Ackles will take over.

Gunn has been recasting multiple roles including that of Superman. Many have been asking who will be taking over as the DC Universe’s Batman, and some fans now fancy the idea of Ackles taking over the role.
Jensen Ackles even dressed up as Batman one Halloween, proving just how perfect he would be for the role. Not just that. He even hinted at Misha Collins, who is a cast member of the series, to even propose the idea of him taking up the role. As reported by CBR, Ackles once said, “Let’s be clear about that. I have gotten to do the voice, so why not get to play the Bat? Maybe someone at Gotham Knights can put in a good word for me if that role ever comes up.”
Fan art was also shared on Instagram by artist @horrific.heroics with a caption that read, “While I feel like I couldn’t exactly capture the likeness of Ackles, this is as close as I could get it! I hope y’all enjoy.”
