Robert Pattinson was nervous about losing the role in ‘The Batman’ movie
Robert Pattinson recently revealed that the media attention around his casting as Batman made him fearful of being turned down for the part. In a conversation with “Time Out”, Pattinson said he was worried about missing out on the role of the Caped Crusader because of the questions he received when promoting his picture ‘The Lighthouse’.
Pattinson explained, “I hadn’t even done the audition. It’s just nerve-wracking because I was really excited about it and you think: really, is this how I’m going to lose this role? It’s the most annoying circumstance to lose something”.
He further also added,
“Everyone was like: ‘Is that true, is that true?’ And it wasn’t true at the time, I hadn’t got the job. It was pretty terrifying”.
How Robert Pattinson made ‘The Batman’ fans angry
Earlier, Pattinson made his fans angry when he told the New York Times that Batman was not a hero, putting himself once again back in the spotlight.
Pattinson, a few months ago, said, “Batman’s not a hero, though. He’s a complicated character. I don’t think I could ever play a real hero—there’s always got to be something a little bit wrong. I think it’s because one of my eyes is smaller than the other one”.
After this statement, Pattinson was given some hard times from ‘The Batman’ fans. “I wasn’t educated about the subject”, Pattinson said to Time Out. “People got very angry about it. It’s bizarre. I still can’t understand the argument. Okay, he’s a superhero, I’m sorry! The next headline: ‘Pattinson retracts: Batman is, in fact, a superhero. He takes it back!'”
Additionally, Pattinson previously told “The Times” that he is terrified of offending Batman fans by saying the wrong thing. He said, “I just fear that when I say anything about Batman, people online are like, ‘What does this mean?’ And I don’t know! I used to be very good at censoring myself, but I’ve said so many ridiculous things over the years, so I’m always curious when I’m promoting these movies how many times I can mess up. It feels like, with every movie that comes out, there’s always one quote from me where it’s like, ‘How? What kind of out-of-body experience produced that screaming nonsense?'”
