Tom Holland is excited to see Robert Pattinson play Bruce Wayne in Matt Reeves' upcoming Batman film.

In a Q&A with GQ, Holland scoured the internet to answer some of his fans' most pressing questions. When one fan suggested he should play Batman, Holland responded by praising Pattinson. "I wouldn't be as good as my friend Robert Pattinson. He's gonna kill it as Batman," he said.

"He's gonna kill it," Holland continued. "And I would not want to go up against him because he's a bit of a beast."

Pattinson was cast as the new Batman in late May, following Ben Affleck's departure from the role. While some were happy with the casting announcement, others were displeased and even started petitions to get Pattinson removed from the role.
