Robert Pattinson has revealed that he enjoys the pressure that comes with playing such a well-known character like his portrayal of ‘The Batman’.
The new superhero movie came to a halt for two weeks but earlier this month they confirmed that they are back on track as the English actor has returned to his leading role after he had tested positive for Covid-19.
A Warner Bros. Pictures spokesperson also confirmed: “Following a hiatus for Covid-19 quarantine precautions, filming has now resumed on ‘The Batman’ in the U.K.”
Speaking to Total Film magazine, Robert Pattinson admitted that he enjoys the pressure of the idea that he could ‘mess up’ his portrayal of a leading character as he likes being held responsible if something goes wrong, he relates this to a feeling he experienced when shooting the ‘Twilight’ movies.
The actor said in the interview: “There’s a slightly different feeling when you know loads and loads of people are going to watch something you’re working on.”
“I weirdly enjoyed it during ‘Twilight’ the idea that you can mess it up. I guess I felt confident. I wanted to be on the big stage.” – He added.
Robert Pattinson also discussed why the upcoming reboot is ‘not an origin tale’: “For me, what’s really important about this iteration is that you know a lot of the other stories are about how he had to master his fear and master himself in order to become Batman.”
“I think this interpretation is incredible. I hope what’s different about what we’re doing is try and do it in exactly that sort of manner and then of course the other things that are from the earlier history of the context of him being the world’s greatest detective and how we got there.” – The actor added.
American filmmaker Matt Reeves, who is directing the superhero movie, revealed that Liverpool will play a significant role in ‘The Batman’.
The film executive confirmed during an interview that the English city would be the backbone for Gotham City as they still have to shoot 75 percent of the film.
‘The Batman’ is currently scheduled to be released in theatres in October 2021.
