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.’
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.
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.
