Robert Pattinson in his new interview said that 'Batman is not a superhero.'
Pattinson will don the cape and cowl in an upcoming film directed by Matt Reeves. Tentatively titled The Batman, the film will arrive in theatres in 2021 and is intended to be the first in a trilogy.
“Batman’s not a superhero,” Pattinson said in an interview to Today’s Willie Geist. “It’s weird, I always balk at it. I’m like, ‘It doesn’t count, you need to have like magical powers to be a superhero.’” When it was pointed out that Batman wears a cape, Pattinson responded, “I’ll give you that one.”
In an earlier interview to The New York Times, Pattinson had 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.”
''There's a part of me that just thinks it's impossible to be what happened with Twilight because it was so sudden,” he said. “I'm hoping it won't be people hanging out outside my place. I just think I'm kind of boring and old now.”
