Robert Pattinson Talks About Batman’s No Kill-Code


Robert Pattinson, who’s going to be playing Bruce Wayne/aka Batman in the upcoming The Batman movie, has been chatting about the character’s no-kill code.

Pattinson was talking to French magazine Premiere about his upcoming Batman movie.

During their conversation, Pattinson talked about the DC Comics’ superhero’s psychology and his no-kill code.

Here’s what he had to say about it all during their interview:

There is this rule with Batman: he must not kill. It can be interpreted in two ways. Either he only wants to inflict the appropriate punishment, or he wants to kill and his self-control prevents him from doing so. I imagined it that way from the rehearsal of the first fight, I thought it was funnier: something in him just wanted to slit the guy’s throat! I told myself that if he spends his nights chasing criminals, it is impossible that he does not take pleasure in it. He suffers and it is a desire that overwhelms him.

Pattinson then went on to add:

And by dint of knocking, his mind clears, he calms down, he reaches a state close to plenitude. I’m sure in this first fight, he manages to convince himself that every guy in front of him is the one who killed his mother (Laughs.) And so that allows him to vent all his rage.

Pattinson then went on to talk about Matt Reeves’ upcoming movie, and he revealed that this version of Batman, “practically lives in the gutter”.

Pattinson then added:

He’s nowhere at home except on the street when he’s wearing the suit. He lives a criminal life, but without committing crimes! I felt like I could get something out of that. Anyway, I could only play a superhero if he was really dirty!
