The Batman star Robert Pattinson speaks out on new role “Batman’s not a hero”

The Batman will see the world’s most favorite caped crusader return to the screen. But Robert Pattinson, who’s taking on the part, says ‘he’s not a hero.’ 

Following the near-disastrous flop of the DC Extended Universe, Gotham’s dark knight is placed to emerge once again alongside a roster of new faces.

In his post-vampire profession, Pattinson has avoided blockbusters, instead opting to refine his acting chops with indie directors – too often dazzling effect.

In a recent interview with The New York Times, Pattinson told: 

Batman’s not a hero, though. He’s a complicated character. I don’t think I could ever play a real hero – there’s always got to be something a little bit wrong. I think it’s because one of my eyes is smaller than the other one.

I love the director, Matt Reeves, and it’s a dope character. His morality is a little bit off. He’s not the golden boy, unlike almost every other comic-book character. There is a simplicity to his worldview, but where it sits is strange, which allows you to have more scope with the character.

Reeves is a fabulous producer– his previous productions include Cloverfield and War for the Planet of the Apes. 

He’s a perfect choice to bring a new take on the dark knight – and he’s assembling a completely unreal character. Big Little Lies’ Zoë Kravitz will star as Catwoman, while Paul Dano was recently declared to be playing The Riddler.

Pattinson added: 

Maybe I’m just used to abuse by now. At least I didn’t get death threats this time — that’s a plus! It’s funny that people are so very angry about Twilight. I never particularly understood it.

The Lighthouse does not hit UK theaters until January 31, 2020 – however, there a few select cinemas before then.
