I'm kind of old and boring now: Robert Pattinson

Robert Pattinson hoping for fans to forget Twilight after Batman

Robert Pattinson Hopes Playing Batman Won't Lead to Twilight-Level Fandom

Robert Pattinson will portray Batman in the upcoming Matt Reeves-directed film The Batman, but the actor says the caped crusader is "not a superhero".

Pattinson also teased that Matt has got a really good direction for The Batman and that he's very eager to get started on the superhero flick. 'It's weird, I always balk at it.

The Lighthouse actor, who is a shoo-in for his first Oscar nomination in 2020, shared that he loved the history of Batman as well as every variation of the DC superhero, essayed by all the actors, before him. That's when Pattinson waded into complicated character waters. I think it's because one of my eyes is smaller than the other. "I just think I'm kind of boring and old now, so it's fine".

'His morality is a little bit off.

Very few performers have ever gotten to experience the type of instant, astronomical fame heaped onto Robert Pattinson when he starred in the Twilight Saga.

The actor also said that he doesn't think Batman to attract the same level of attention as the Twilight movies. It's a very, very special part and I think it's been very carefully - I feel like everyone's really looked after the character and its history and there's a lot of reverence for it. But, he hopes that fans won't be hanging out outside his home because he is just "boring and old" now.

Pattinson's last acting gig was Robert Eggers' "The Lighthouse", which released in the USA in October. Jeffrey Wright will take on the role of Commissioner Gordon, and Andy Serkis has been cast to play Alfred. Tentatively titled The Batman, the film will arrive in theatres in 2021, and is meant to be the first in a trilogy. There are also rumors swirling that Colin Farrell is in talks to play Penguin.
