Robert Pattinson Says His Batman Is 'Not a Hero'

Image zoom

Reeves, the filmmaker behind the last two "Planet of the Apes" sequels, took over "Batman" directing duties from Ben Affleck in January 2017. In a new interview, Pattinson opens up about taking on the cape and cowl of the Dark Knight and talks about how morally gray and complicated his Batman will be. The most recent big-screen version of the character was played by Jim Carrey in 1995's Batman Forever, directed by Joel Schumacher. "I think it's because one of my eyes is smaller than the other one". While there isn't a great track record of having too many villains in one Batman movie, we have gotten the same characters over and over again, so it is nice that instead of Joker or Bane, we are getting another go at Riddler. I don't think I could ever play a real hero - there's always got to be something a little bit wrong.

Reeves' story has been described as a character-driven project focusing on Batman's experiences as the world's greatest detective. "He's not the golden boy, unlike nearly every other comic-book character", Pattinson said.

"His morality is a little bit off", Pattinson said. "[Batman]'s a dope character", he said. "There is a simplicity to his worldview, but where it sits is odd, which allows you to have more scope with the character".
