The new Batman, Robert Pattinson, has discussed his casting process, what it felt like to put on the batsuit, asking Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight Trilogy) for suggestions, and a meeting he previously interviewed of Marvel Studios Since he was with Caped Crusader at the end of May. But the most exciting nuggets for many comic book fans are the part that has been left out of the interview, which deals with clown star Joaquin Phoenix. For some, it has been conceived naturally to be a Batman-Joker alien to the right cue, enhanced by the fact that both films are not part of the DC Comics film universe. Warner Bros To say anything officially.
Towards the end of the Variety cover story with the Batman star, author Ramin Setoodeh says: “At one point in our conversation, [Pattinson] offers a mundane comment about Joaquin Phoenix, who stars in The Joker (a film he just released Have not seen), before asking to take it back. “Oh s ** t, ‘he says, that he is not accustomed to think of spoiler. ‘I should not say that. I am so used to beautiful art house films, where you can watch the movie three times and still do not know what it is about. There’s not much to go on here, but the fact that Pattinson felt something is needed to take back his “Mundan comment.”
If the two films were indeed surpassed, then Batman might not currently be given The Joker set in the ’80s Gotham City. Batman writer-director Matt Reeves said in January that it would be a “no Batman story” with Bruce Wayne in a more “detective mode,” but no official word has been made on the period. In March, there were rumors that Batman would be set in the 90s, which would allow Pattinson and Phoenix characters to co-exist, but they were never confirmed. Meanwhile, the Joker has already laid the foundation, with Batman’s father Thomas Wayne present in the film.
Pattinson also revealed that he had tried pitching Reeves himself before the role ever came his way: “I had Batman in my mind for awhile. It’s such an absurd thing to say. I kind of like It was an idea to do, and I went prodding Matt. He didn’t accept any prods. I kept telling him to meet. Luckily, the director came calling later, though Pattinson was worried he wouldn’t cast after There was leaked: “When he spoke leaks, I was furious f-ing. Everyone was distracted. Everyone was getting nervous with my team. I thought the whole thing was blown away. “
But as we now know, it was not. The final bit of the casting process was taking place in the batsuit. Here’s how it went, per Pattinson: “I put it on. I remember saying to Matt, ‘It feels quite transformative! He was like,’ I hope it does! You’re really in the batsuit! ‘ Ho.’ […] You immediately feel very powerful. And it’s so amazing, something that is incredibly difficult to get into, so the ritual of getting into it is very outrageous — got to try to push in. Once you’ve gotten over it, it’s like, ‘Yes, I feel strong, I fell hard, even though I had someone squeeze my butt cheeks in feet.
With Nolan, Pattinson asked him about the Batsuit, among other things: “I was talking about what to do with the Batsuit. How to get more movement in it.”
Batman Pattinson would be the first comic book role, but it was not the first time the conversation started. He said there was “an information meeting” around the Guardians of the Marvel galaxy, but it went nowhere. That was shortly after the twilight ended and Pattinson said he didn’t know what he was seeing: “Thoughts of trying that transition after Twilight, I’ve never seen a road in that direction.” Why didn’t he feel the same way about Batman? Because he is the only comic book character, he always loves: “That’s an exciting part. I think it’s because he doesn’t have any superpowers.”
Pattinson will appear in Batman on June 25, 2021. Warner bros. For, it is one of several DC films set for release: The Joker on October 4, Margot Robbie in February 2020, led by Prey’s Birds, Wonder Woman in 1984 June 2020, James Gunn-directed Suicide Squad in August 2021, And Aquaman 2.
