This Was The Exact Moment Robert Pattinson Learned He Is Going to Be the Next Batman
Unlike Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man, Chris Evans’ Captain America, and Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow, you can’t really attach one name to Batman. For years, we have seen many actors take on the role of the Caped Crusader and the latest addition to the long list is Robert Pattinson, much to the delight of the brooding star’s fans.
Everyone will see him play the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman,’ which is slated for a 2021 release. Robert is next to play the role after Ben Affleck, who played the hero in two films, 2017’s ‘Justice League’ and 2016’s ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.’
The public is excited to see how Robert will give life to the comic book protagonist because he has quite a huge role to fill in. So how did the hunk feel when he first heard he got the part?
Hearing the Good News
In an interview, the 34-year-old revealed the exact moment he received the good news. Apparently, Robert was still filming for ‘Tenet,’ directed by Christopher Nolan, when he learned he was going to be suiting up.
The ‘Harry Potter’ star remembered that he had just had an intense weekend doing work with the director when he got the news that he will be the next Batman. Meanwhile, because of the Covid-19 pandemic, it pushed back production for ‘The Batman,’ with Matt claiming they had already shot 25-percent of the picture before they took a hiatus.
It was in May 2019 when rumors began swirling that he was cast as Batman. He feared for himself at the time because he thought he would be receiving hateful comments once more.
Other stars who played Batman in live action films were Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney, Christian Bale, and Ben. Now, it’s Robert’s time to shine as the Caped Crusader, and much to his surprise, the announcement about it was well-received than when he was tapped to play Edward Cullen, the sparkling vampire in the ‘Twilight’ franchise.
The films that were based on Stephenie Meyer’s novels catapulted him to unimaginable fame. In another interview, Robert revealed that fans of the books were outraged when he was announced to play the lead role in the fantasy films.
He hinted that he got death threats from angry fans who didn’t approve of him becoming Edward. Others simply said Robert’s appearance wasn’t in line with how the author described the vampire while some even said he was ‘revolting’ – this was something the actor didn’t quite get.
However, when fans saw the first film, they warmed up to Robert and in fact, he gained throngs of followers. He admitted that ‘Twilight’ has been the springboard for him since he had stints in the past that didn’t make him as big as he is now.
