Robert Pattinson hoping for fans to forget Twilight after Batman

Robert Pattinson

Best known for roles as dark, quiet anti-heroes in recent years, Robert Pattinson was awarded the role of Batman after Ben Affleck left the film that Matt Reeves was set to direct. Matt Reeves had been toiling away at the script for quite some time, making it as ideal as he possibly could. Pattinson says that whenever someone calls Batman a "superhero" he balks at it. "I'm like, 'It doesn't count, you need to have like magical powers to be a superhero.'" When it was pointed out that Batman wears a cape, Pattinson responded, "I'll give you that one".

"Batman's not a superhero..." I think it's because one of my eyes is smaller than the other. Batman's not a hero.

"It's weird, I always baulk at it". That's when Pattinson waded into complicated character waters. He's not the golden boy, unlike nearly every other comic-book character'. "I just think I'm kind of boring and old now".

Very few performers have ever gotten to experience the type of instant, astronomical fame heaped onto Robert Pattinson when he starred in the Twilight Saga.


Pattinson's last acting gig was Robert Eggers' "The Lighthouse", which released in the United States in October.

Pattinson says a part of him thinks that it's impossible for history to repeat itself because what happened with Twilight was so sudden. I'm hoping it won't be people hanging out outside my place.

Acclaimed actor John Turturro has also been cast in The Batman, joining the likes of Zoe Kravitz and Paul Dano in Matt Reeves' adaptation of the DC franchise story. The Lighthouse star believes that Matt Reeves has a very good direction for the DC movie. There are also rumors swirling that Colin Farrell is in talks to play Penguin.
