Robert Pattinson has done very well in breaking off his Edward Cullen image from “Twilight”. However, the upcoming “Batman” film might prove to be his biggest challenge yet, with high expectation already being set for his role as the Gotham saviour.

While it’s true that the 33-year-old is no stranger to major franchises, none of his roles in “Twilight” and “Harry Potter” are at the caliber of Batman.

In a recent interview with The Guardian, the London-born actor discussed his part in the upcoming films “Tenet” and more specifically “The Batman”. He revealed that he was the one who sought out the superhero role because, “I felt a connection to it, I don’t know why, I just really wanted it.” Pattinson described the Dark Knight as having some kind of unidentifiable power that is super attractive.

Regarding the expectation, “The Lighthouse” star said, “I’m already remembering what it’s like to talk about a movie where there’s an expectation” before adding, “whenever you say anything, people are like, ‘Argh! You idiot!’ Like, dude, I haven’t even started yet!” However, the Brit stated that, “there is no harsher critic of myself than myself, so I don’t need to worry about anyone else.”

The interviewer, Alex Moshakis, then jokingly asked in the interview whether the “High Life” actor has any back-up plan if the actor’s worst case scenarios for the film were to play out and that he failed to stick the landing for the “Batman” role? It took “The King” star a minute but he eventually came up with an answer. “Porn,” he said with a huge giggle, “but art-house porn.”

The “art-house” part of the answer was a perfect acknowledgement and nod to his independent films since his departure from “Twilight” in 2012. “Tenet” was the first tent-pole film he had done in a while, with it being directed by visionary director, Christopher Nolan.

Matt Reeves’ “The Batman” is slated to appear in the cinema on 25th June 2021, with production set to begin in early 2020.
