Future Batman actor Robert Pattinson is hoping that the attention he receives from playing the DC superhero won’t be like the obsession that surrounded him during his Twilight days.
Before becoming an indie darling for roles in films like Good Time, The Road, and Cosmopolis, Robert Pattinson was well-known for his role as vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight franchise. Maligned by critics for poorly written dialogue, incoherent storytelling, and wooden acting, the Twilight franchise was the butt of the joke in Robert Pattinson’s career for almost a decade. However, the Twilight role made the future Batman star one of the most popular actors on the planet for a brief period of time.
In a recent interview with TODAY, Robert Pattinson was asked if he was nervous that the fame that playing Batman will bring onto him will be the same as his Twilight days. Robert Pattinson shrugged it off, hoping that the Batman fame wouldn’t be as bad as Twilight. You can check out the interview featuring Batman actor Robert Pattinson below.

Robert Pattinson also hopes that people don’t sleep and hang around his house, something that happened during his Twilight days. During the height of his Twilight fame, Robert Pattinson was being stalked by a woman who would hang outside his apartment. Batman actor Robert Pattinson eventually took the stalker out to dinner, eventually boring her when he started talking about his problems. Hopefully, Robert Pattinson won’t be boring any stalkers when he joins Matt Reeves in bringing the Caped Crusader to life in the upcoming The Batman.

Full plot details for The Batman are currently under wraps, though the film will center around a younger Bruce Wayne and features a Rogues’ Gallery of villains that includes Catwoman, The Penguin, and The Riddler. The Matt Reeves film will follow Batman during his formative years as Gotham City’s protector and will make use of the Dark Knight’s detective skills to a greater extent than previous DC films. It is expected to be the first chapter in a new trilogy with Robert Pattinson as Batman.
Directed by Matt Reeves from a script he co-wrote with Mattson Tomlin, The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner James Gordon, Jayme Lawson as Bella, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, and Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth. Recently, Colin Farrell was reportedly in talks to play the Penguin.
The Batman will be released in theaters on June 25, 2021.
