Getting the role of a superhero in a film is a wonderful oportunity. But this also means lots of work from actors and actresses to add or lose body mass in order to match up to their comic book counterparts.
Few have managed to get into the right shape. Examples include Chris Evans as Captain America, Christian Bale as Batman, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and the list go on. Despite this, not all human bodies are that accepting to the transformation, as Robert Pattinson found out.
The Brit, who is set to play the new Batman, has been hard at work training in preparation for the role as seen here. Nevertheless, a new report claims that the star is having trouble bulking up to play the Gotham Dark Knight. It is believed that the 33-year-old is finding it difficult building up muscle even with his intensive training.
This troubling report has left many questions hanging over at the new “Batman” film. One of which, is whether this trouble in muscle built may cause for delays for the film? Especially since it has been reported that filming will start late 2019 or early 2020.
“I’ve also heard that Robert Pattinson is having a little bit of trouble bulking up. I think it’s probably impossible for him to fully bulk up because he just has a slight build,” Randolph told We Got This Covered.
“But I think it’s hilarious they are like, ‘Maybe if we gave him a few more weeks, he might bulk up’. If he hasn’t bulked up by now, he’s not going to bulk up. Just accept you have skinny Batman and deal with it,” she later added.
Hopefully everything will turn out well for “The Lighthouse” star and we do hope that fans will accept Pattinson’s Batman, even if he turns out skinnier than what was drawn in the comic books.
