In the next two years, we will be witnessing many superhero, fantasy, sci-fi movies. Whether it is a Marvel or DC, or Star Wars, every franchise has shows or movies coming up. Robert Pattinson, popularly known as the Twilight guy, will don the cap in Matt Reeves’ The Batman.
Last year, we saw the teaser of The Batman. People who had apprehensions about seeing Pattinson play the iconic superhero were blown away by his acting. While fans are supremely excited to see him as the Caped Crusader, the actor seems to be not taking it in a good way.
In an interview with Cinemabland, Robert Pattinson talked about the pressure he feels with being a part of The Batman. The actor says that he is offending the superhero’s fan. The Tenet actor said, “I mean, I’ve got a lot of thoughts. Well, it’s funny, like, I’ve done so many movies where, you know, I play these sort of partially monstrous characters. And whenever I’ve been promoting them, you know, normally, no one cares what you say about it.”
The actor further added, “And I’ve just noticed every single time I say one sentence about Batman, there’s this massive, I’m offending swathes of Batman fans. But, I mean, it’s kind of, I mean, the interesting thing about Batman itself is that you can basically… it’s been played in so many different ways.”
“The comics cover so much ground. The movies cover so much ground. I mean, if you’re going on the kind of… if you’re trying to play a historically accurate Batman, I mean, you could literally play anything. So I guess it’s kind of what Matt Reeves is directing and kind of wants to go for,” stated Robert Pattinson.
Well, the teaser has impressed the fans already. Many people have appreciated the extremely dark tone it sets, and fans feel it is accurate to the comics. The actor already won hearts with his acting in Christopher Nolan’s Tenet and Antonio Campos’ The Devil All The Time. So we think the fans have full faith in Robert Pattinson’s potential as an actor.
In recent years, Robert is the third actor to play the Dark Knight after Christian Bale and Ben Affleck. Earlier, Matt Reeves stated that his Batman is set in the other multiverse (Earth). As Ben Affleck is still the Batman in the DC universe (he will appear in The Flash movie), fans are hoping for a crossover between them.
Meanwhile, Matt Reeves’ The Batman also stars Zoë Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as Riddler, Colin Farrel as Penguin and Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon. The film is slated to release on March 4, 2022. The film’s release date got delayed several times because of the pandemic.
