Recent history has shown Batman generally in damn good shape. Affleck? Jacked. Bale? He can get his body to do whatever he wants. Even Batman from video games and animated series was huge. The next on-screen Batman is played by the eccentric lead actor Robert Pattinson in 2021 The Batman and while Warner Bros. wants to make sure that he joins those who have gathered in front of him, he doesn't feel the moment is just motivating. Indeed, in a new GQ cover story, Pattinson said that he is currently ignoring the trainer provided by the studio – as the children say –
: "I think if you train all the time, you are part of the problem "He says in the story that" you "refers to other actors. "You have set a precedent. Nobody did this in the 1970s. Even James Dean – he wasn't exactly torn. "
Pattinson does everything to make it clear that he was never one for all of that training and buff . He remembered a time on the set of Twilight demanding a possible shirtless scene. "When they once told me to take off my shirt, they told me to put it back on," he said.
The story describes that Pattinson is currently isolated in an apartment in London where the studio set him up – he usually lives in Los Angeles – and his coach (with whom the studio also set him up) just left him a bosu ball and a single weight. The coach desperately wanted him to use both, but he wasn't motivated, and after the sound he thought about everything except training.
Fortunately for The Batman (and director Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. ) this mindset in which Pattinson was stuck did not prove to be a trend. Pattinson recently called Zoë Kravitz, who will be playing Catwoman in the upcoming film – she still trains five days a week while they're not all on set. Pattinson says he just can't keep up with that right now. "In the truest sense of the word, I hardly do anything," he said.
Fortunately, Pattinson got the Batman job for more than physical skills; with his roles in films such as Good Time (by Uncut Gems directors Josh and Benny Safdie) The Lighthouse, and High Life (and a key role in the upcoming Christopher Nolan film) he is surely an inspired choice to play Gothams Dark Knight. He just has to go back to the set first.
