Robert Pattinson: Batman’s Not a Hero, He’s Complicated


Here are the latest Batman/THE BATMAN comments from the new Batman on film, Robert Pattinson, via an interview with THE NEW YORK TIMES

On playing a here when RP once said he didn’t want to play a hero…

Batman’s not a hero, though. He’s a complicated character. I don’t think I could ever play a real hero — there’s always got to be something a little bit wrong. I think it’s because one of my eyes is smaller than the other one.

On what about playing Batman excites him…

I love the director, Matt Reeves, and it’s a dope character. His morality is a little bit off. He’s not the golden boy, unlike almost every other comic-book character. There is a simplicity to his worldview, but where it sits is strange, which allows you to have more scope with the character.


I just fear that when I say anything about “Batman,” people online are like, “What does this mean?” And I don’t know! I used to be very good at censoring myself, but I’ve said so many ridiculous things over the years, so I’m always curious when I’m promoting these movies how many times I can mess up. It feels like with every movie that comes out, there’s always one quote from me where it’s like, “How? What kind of out-of-body experience produced that screaming nonsense?”

Interesting stuff!  Post your thoughts in the comments below.  AND…
