Robert Pattinson sounds like he's well up to the task of playing Batman
This movie is shaping up to be a cracker.
Robert Pattinson is next up to play the iconic role of Batman, and he is well aware of the fact that he has quite big shoes to fill.
Following in the footsteps of names like Clooney, West, Affleck and Bale, Pattinson has admitted that he is going to find it difficult to make the role his own, but says that he feels he is well able to do so.
In a recent interview with GQ, the former Twilight heart throb said: "I was watching the making of Batman & Robin the other day. And even then, George Clooney was saying that he was worried about the fact that it’s sort of been done, that a lot of the ground you should cover with the character has been already covered. And that’s in ’96, ’97?
"You’ve seen this sort of lighter version, you’ve seen a kind of jaded version, a kind of more animalistic version.
"And the puzzle of it becomes quite satisfying, to think: Where’s my opening? And also, do I have anything inside me which would work if I could do it? And then also, it’s a legacy part, right? I like that.
"And also, do I have anything inside me which would work if I could do it? And then also, it’s a legacy part, right? I like that. There’s so few things in life where people passionately care about it before it’s even happened. You can almost feel that pushback of anticipation, and so it kind of energizes you a little bit.
"It’s different from when you’re doing a part and there’s a possibility that no one will even see it. Right? In some ways it’s, I don’t know… It makes you a little kind of spicy."
Sounds like he's up to the challenge.
The rest of the cast for the movie includes Zoe Kravitz, Paul Dano, Andy Cerkis and Colin Farrell, so you see why our expectations are high...
Although the movie is supposed to land on our screens in July of 2021, the fact that production has been currently been shut down implies it may be somewhat delayed.
