While his version of the superhero looks very dark and violent, Robert Pattinson confessed to having passed tests with Matt Reeves in the outfit worn by George Clooney in “Batman & Robin”.
The story may not be known to everyone, but Robert Pattinson did not hesitate to tell it: it was during the filming of Tenet that he slipped away to participate in video tests for The Batman, claiming a family emergency with Christopher Nolan … who saw clearly in his game and knew where he was going.
What the actor had, on the other hand, never mentioned, until this interview given to ScreenRant, this is the outfit with which he did the tests in question: the one worn by George Clooney in Batman & Robin. Given the dark and realistic atmosphere that Matt Reeves seems to have developed in his reboot, imagine Robert Pattinson in the costume of the opus remained famous (and loved despite everything) for his side “big anything” can make you smile.
But the method is not new, because a video had shown that Christian Bale and Cillian Murphy (who eventually inherited the role of Scarecrow) had tried out for Batman Begins in the costume Val Kilmer wore in Batman Forever.
While waiting to discover, perhaps, the images of the casting of Robert Pattinson, a new teaser published on the YouTube channel Warner Bros. Indonesia gives us some never-before-seen shots of The Batman. And clearly suggests that Bruce Wayne is indeed one of the targets of the Machiavellian plan of the Riddler (Paul Dano).
See you on March 2 in French theaters to find out how Batman will manage to overcome his puzzles.
