Robert Pattinson Says He Will Turn to Porn if Batman Fails

The highly anticipated Matt Reeves Batman film has begun rehearsals with Robert Pattinson. The Twilight lead to be playing the titular Batman character in the movie. When asked in a recent interview about what he would end up doing if the role didn’t as per plan, he jokingly said that he would turn to porn! Yes he indeed said that. “Porn. But art-house porn.” – were his exact remarks.

He has been under tremendous pressure considering the magnitude of the expectations associated with the role, and has also been heavily involved in interviewing for the film. This has led to frustration for the star, and he just wants to move ahead with filming and get on with it.

“I’m already remembering what it’s like to talk about a movie where there’s an expectation. Whenever you say anything, people are like, ‘Argh! You idiot!’ Like, dude, I haven’t even started yet,” he said.

When asked whether he would meet the expectations of the role, he replied –

“But there is no harsher critic of myself than myself, so I don’t need to worry about anyone else.”

Robert Pattinson sees the character of the Batman in a unique manner. Contrary to what public opinion is of him being the best hero ever, Pattinson feels that the character is deeper and of many layers or strata. And very complicated.

“Batman’s not a hero, though. He’s a complicated character,” he told The New York Times. “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.”

Batman is scheduled to hit theatres on June 25, 2021 and appears to have a solid cast and director. Pattinson has spoken highly about the director Matt Reeves as well and looks forward to working with him. Is this going to be a normal Batman remake or does this entail a special performance – we will all eagerly await.
