In a recent “Actors on Actors” feature on VARIETY featuring Jennifer Lopez and Robert Pattinson, here’s an exchange between the two regarding RP being cast as Batman…
Lopez: Why “Batman”?
Pattinson: With “Batman,” there was something — I was very focused on it. It kept coming back into my head.
Lopez: So you sought out the part?
Pattinson: Well, not sought it out directly. But I was interested in it. I don’t know what it is, which happened inside of me, but I was like, “I kind of want to do it.” I like doing something which an audience doesn’t know that it wants, and try to get it out of them: “Oh yeah, you want to play Batman.”
Lopez: You’re going to be Batman.
Pattinson: And that’s crazy! Let me tell you something. Whenever I see that little action figure, I still haven’t really got my head around it yet.
So there you go. Not much, but a little something to get you all excited for THE BATMAN as much as Robert Pattinson obviously is! (Thanks to BOF’s Ryan Lower for the heads up.)
