Here are a few quotes from Robert Pattinson — who plays Batman in THE BATMAN — from the upcoming TOTAL FILM feature article…
I was aiming for quite different stuff. Obviously it’s basically the jewel in the crown, of the parts you can really get as an actor. But I’d never really thought I was anywhere close to doing it, especially with the other parts I was attracted to at the time. I just kept obsessively checking up on it for the next year or so. Even my agents were like, ‘Oh, interesting. I thought you only wanted to play total freaks?’ And I was like, ‘He is a freak!’
On being a lifelong Batman fan…
Out of all the comic-book characters and that kind of movie, I’ve seen every single one of the [Batman] movies in the cinema, which I can’t really say I’ve done for any other series. I was always really looking forward to them coming out. There was the combination of just being so attracted to it, but also feeling like it’d had a lot of movies made about it, and none of them are bad movies. People kind of shit on some of them, but they’re not actually bad. They all kind of completely achieve what they set out to achieve, and they’re all really interesting, according to their time and place. I don’t know. I just had a weird instinct about it. But I’ve always loved the character.
There’s something cool about both the director and star of THE BATMAN being huge Batman fans. Not a requirement, but it’s cool nonetheless.
ICYMI, tickets for THE BATMAN will go on sale starting February 10, 2022. You’ll be able to get them from Fandango here at BOF, FYI. – Bill “Jett” Ramey
