Comic fans remain skeptical dusk Star Robert Pattinson portrays The Batman in Matt Reeves’ upcoming version of the DC superhero favorite. Well, his recent comments will certainly not help these doubters feel better, as Pattinson recently revealed that he barely trains while living under a homeless order.
“I think if you train all the time, you’re part of the problem. You set a precedent. Nobody did that in the 70s. Even James Dean – he wasn’t exactly torn.”
While the actor is correct that film icon James Dean was “not exactly torn apart”, it may be worth noting that Dean was not asked to defeat the criminal underworld of Gotham City with one hand. According to Pattinson, the film studio hired a trainer who left the actor with a bosu ball, a single weight, and a sincere request to use both. Pattinson has none of that at the moment and says so when he was the star of that dusk Franchise, “the one time they told me to take off my shirt, I think they told me to put it back on”. It is currently unknown whether this is due to the fact that it was simply not sparkling enough.
Pattinson also says he spoke to another actor in The Batman, Zoë Kravitz (who will be playing Cat woman) and that she told him that, unlike him, she trained the turnstile five days a week during this time. Pattinson’s reaction to Kravitz’s clear commitment will surely cast a spell on Batman fans.
“I literally hardly do anything.”
Now it’s worth noting that Robert Pattinson has a reputation for being a bit of a comedian and enjoys playing around with people. So it could well be that the actor trains more than Kravitz, but cannot resist the opportunity to fool around and irritate fans. Even if he has decided to rest and try to enjoy this time of self-isolation, is it really that important? Batman doesn’t have to be the muscle-bound giant Ben Affleck was with The Batman Perhaps a smoother, ninja-like version of the Caped Crusader, where Pattinson wouldn’t have to look like he could lift a car over his head. As long as he doesn’t show up with two arms and a beer intestine, of course …
