Twilight star Robert Pattinson, who is all set to take up the role of iconic Bruce Wayne in the upcoming Batman movie, says that he does not consider the Caped Crusader as a hero. The actor during a recent interview said that Batman is a complicated character but not a hero. Robert Pattinson also said that he thinks he can never play a real hero because the characters he plays must have some flaws in them.
The actor further revealed that he said yes to the project because of director Matt Reeves. Robert Pattinson said he loves the director, and it’s a dope character whose morality is a little bit off. Describing Batman, Robert Pattinson pointed out he is not the golden boy, unlike almost every other comic-book character. There is a simplicity in the character and his views of the world which distinguishes him from any other superhero.
Meanwhile, in a previous interview, Robert Pattinson has opened up about how he cannot believe to have gotten the role of Batman. While fans are divided over him portraying the Caped Crusader, he said that he himself never thought it was a realistic prospect.
Robert Pattinson reportedly said, "It's kind of insane, I was so far away from ever thinking it was a realistic prospect. I literally do not understand how I've got it, at all"
"It's much more fun when you're an underdog, there's no expectation of you." ANI further quoted him as saying.
Filmmaker Matt Reeves, who was behind the last two films in the Planet of the Apes franchise, is set to direct the trilogy of Batman films starring Robert Pattinson in the lead. After Ben Affleck stepped down as the film's director in 2017, Reeves boarded the project. Affleck, who took on the role of Batman for Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League, will be replaced by Robert Pattinson this time. The iconic role is previously played by several other actors including Michael Keaton, George Clooney, and Christian Bale, among others. The first in the trilogy is expected to be released on June 2021.
