Robert Pattinson Opens Up On The Mental Difficulty Of Filming The Batman

Robert Pattinson has opened up on the mental toughness needed to play Bruce Wayne in the highly anticipated The Batman.


The 35-year-old actor has taken on the role of the caped crusader and despite being grateful for the role, Pattinson has confessed to having some difficulties on set.

He told GQ that the set, on the outskirts of London, was a 'bubble within a bubble'.

He said: "And the nature of the shoot was so kind of insular, always shooting at night, just really dark all the time, and I felt very much alone.

"Even just being in the suit all the time. You’re not really allowed out of the studio with the suit on, so I barely knew what was going on at all outside."

The studio opted to build him a small tent where he could go to unwind.

He added: "I’d be in the tent just making ambient electronic music in the suit, looking over the cowl.

"There’s something about the construction of the cowl that makes it very difficult to read books, so you have to kind of almost lean forward to see out of the cowl."

By the cowl, he was referring to the mask.

He said: "I kept calling it a mask. But I learned, no, no, it’s the cowl."

After completing the filming in April, the actor went on to say: "I mean, I was really, really, really dead afterward. I just looked at a photo of myself from April and I looked green."

Director Matt Reeves recently revealed he wrote his version of Batman specifically for Robert Pattinson.

Many gawked at the idea of Edward Cullen from Twilight beating up baddies in Gotham and speaking in that harsh accent.

However, Reeves looked at the British actor's other work and was hopeful he would accept the offer to play the Dark Knight.

"From the beginning, I was imagining the character in my head," he told Movie Maker.

"I watched movies of actors in the age range and he really captivated me. I started writing for him. I had no idea if he'd ever want to be in the movie."

Robert agreed that he had never considered auditioning for comic book movies before, however one thing led to another and now he's at the helm of one of the biggest names in superhero lore.

The Batman release date will be 4 March 2022.
