AFJ's Take: Let's give Pattinson a chance. Instantly we think of Michael Keaton's casting in Tim Burton's film and Heath Ledger's casting in Christopher Nolan's. The majority of fanboys may not appreciate or like Pattinson's early vampire films, but he is an actor, it's his job to take roles and play parts. Let us save our collective judgment for June 25th, 2021.
If this really bothers you, don't see the film. Don't comment on his casting. Don't click any link between now and then involved with the film. Show Warner Bros. you don't care for this casting by not so much as giving it a comment, like or share... let alone your money. #AFJ4LIFE
