There’s been a lot of chatter recently about Robert Pattinson’s take on Batman.
Well, maybe not his take on the DC Comics character, but what’s been going on between his and the film’s director Matt Reeves on set.
It was reported by YouTuber Overload DVD that there were issues between Pattinson and Reeves.
According to the YouTuber who likes to spouting nonsense about the Star Wars movies usually, Reeves wasn’t happy with Pattinson’s physique.
Overload DVD – otherwise known as Doomcock – claimed that Reeves told him to leave the set to get in better shape.
There was so much that sounded untrue about this rumour that I decided to do some digging.
Well, according to my sources, this is a load of nonsense.
There was never any issue between Reeves and Pattinson and his physique hasn’t been brought up once.
In fact, I was told that it was a deliberate choice to have Pattinson’s Batman be leaner and less bulky than the Christian Bale and Ben Affleck versions of the character.
Robert Pattinson was never asked to leave The Batman set to ‘bulk up’
Reeves’ vision for the character, I was told, was a fighter who used his brain and agility to cripple his enemies, not his bulk.
This sounds like a really interesting version of the character as far as I’m concerned.
I enjoyed Bale and Affleck’s more brutal versions of Batman, but it is time for something a bit different.
Anyway, I was also told that Pattinson did actually contract COVID-19, but that he’s in good health now and is no longer contagious.
This is brilliant news, and Pattinson’s actually been seen on set recently, which is good.
Finally, and this is the really interesting bit of news I was told, my sources informed me that Warner Bros. Pictures has been really impressed with the early rushes of the movie.
They were especially pleased with Pattinson’s performance.
The higher-ups at Warner Bros. have been so taken with Pattinson and his take on Batman that they’re trying to get him to sign onto a four-picture deal.
As it stands, we still don’t know how many movies Pattinson will play the Dark Knight in.
Warner Bros. wants R-Pats in at least four more Dark Knight movies
It was reported that the idea was to have him star in a trilogy, however. Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment might be thinking of expanding that even further.
Pattinson is young, so he could star as Batman for years to come.
Reeves will also reportedly be involved in at least three of these Batman movies, including The Batman that is.
I’ll let you know if I get any more information regarding Robert Pattinson and The Batman.
What do you make of this news?
Do you think that Robert Pattinson is the perfect choice to play Batman?
