Former Green Lantern star Peter Sarsgaard has teased at an intense role the upcoming DC superhero Robert Pattinson film, The Batman.
One of the bigger mysteries surrounding The Batman is that of Peter Sarsgaard’s role in the film. In it, he is currently credited as Gil Colson who is said to be the current District Attorney of Gotham. The name, however, is not that of any character in DC Comics lore but did appear in an episode of Batman: The Animated Series where he was a pawn of Two-Face’s attempted takeover of Gotham. Whether or not this will factor into the plot of the film is currently unknown but Peter Sarsgaard seems dedicated to the part.
While speaking to Observer, Peter Sarsgaard talked a bit about his role in the upcoming film and how he shot intense scene after intense scene:
“My part is very intense. On a big show like that my main concern was that I would have to do it 150 times—this intense scene and then that intense scene. My character is at nine out of ten for a lot of it. That was going through my head a lot, like ‘How do I maintain this?'”
