The Batman’s Robert Pattinson May Be Having Issues Bulking Up For His DC Comics Role
OK. So, when an actor gets cast in a big superhero role, they tend to go through what’s now been called the Marvel diet, yet it’s not just Marvel actors that have to do this, DCEU actors do too, and that’s the case with Robert Pattinson as Batman.
In order to actually look like someone who would go out at night dressed as a man-bat, then you’ll have to have a certain amount of muscle to protect yourself against enemies.
That is supposed to be the case with Batman, yet there are now rumours that he’s having issues getting ‘swole’.
Now, this comes from YouTuber Beyond The Trailer, and she can be very much hit and miss, yet she’s adamant that this is the case.
Here’s what she had to say about Robert Pattinson’s Batman workout routine in full:
I’ve also heard that Robert Pattinson is having a little bit of trouble bulking up. I think it’s probably impossible for him to fully bulk up because he just has a slight build, but I think it’s hilarious they are like, ‘Maybe if we gave him a few more weeks, he might bulk up’. If he hasn’t bulked up by now, he’s not going to bulk up. Just accept you have skinny Batman and deal with it.

It does seem as though her sources are a little vague, so I’m not too sure how reliable her information is.
Warner Bros. would have made sure that Pattinson has the very best personal trainers in order to get to be the right size to play Batman.
That said., he is quite a slight guy, so maybe he really is just finding it difficult to bulk up, and to be honest, it seems like a really tough thing to do, and not great for your personal health.
Remember how big Ben Affleck got to play the role in the DCEU, and then once he stopped he found it tough to shift the extra pounds.
Hopefully, it’ll all turn out OK for Pattinson and his version of the Batman might be a more agile one, a bit like in Batman Beyond, which I think would be quite cool.
What do you think of this? Are you worried about Pattinson not being able to bulk up for Batman or do you think it doesn’t really matter that much? Let me know in the comments below.
