Robert Pattinson must try all the previous combinations except one
The Batman Star Robert Pattinson made every fan’s dream come true: he got to try on all but one previous version of the Batman costume worn by live-action actors. In a new exclusive interview, Pattinson was asked who his defining Batman actor was, and he ended up going on the tangent of how he did his first Batman screen test by doing a comparison sizing with previous Batman actors. It all gets hilarious when Pattinson has to try to describe those test results…
“Strangely, I was able to try on every Batman every Batman outfit for my screen test, to actually see which Batman I was,” Pattison told Fandango.
Pattinson’s The Batman co-star Colin Farell, who was quick to point out the one exception to this costume test: “Not Adam West.”
It was indeed quickly confirmed that Adam West’s costume from the 1960s Batman TV series and movie was not considered. No one (including Pattinson) was interested in getting a glimpse of what a modern day Batman would look like running around in spandex tights…
So which of the previous Batmans is Robert Pattinson most size compatible with? According to the actor:
“My head…the only person who had a head big enough for me to fit in the hood was Clooney, actually. I didn’t realize everyone had heads small enough…So you can tell. judging and the most important thing is the hood, I could only fit in Clooney’s hood, but I couldn’t fit in his costume, so I had a very vulnerable abdomen and kind of a groin area.
From there, the conversation escalates to Pattinson implying about everything from George Clooney’s height to his “groin” height…but luckily the other cast members of The Batman were there. to get the trio back on track!
It’s interesting to wonder which version of previous Batman film actors Robert Pattinson’s version seems most in line with. In truth, it feels like something of a fusion, with elements of the menacing Goth and bulletproof feel of Burton’s suit; the “real-world” DIY aesthetic of the Nolan suit; and the edgy, violent atmosphere of the Batfleck suit. The best of all worlds, and still a design that stands out as unique.
It’s also worth mentioning that director Matt Reeves and The Batman’s marketing team have done an impeccable job of making Pattinson’s Batman look cool as hell in every piece of promotional material, complete with a tough new black tone.
The Batman will be able to leave its mark on the franchise from March 4. Theater tickets are now on sale.
