Robert Pattinson as Batman is ‘badass’

Jeffrey Wright believes that Robert Pattinson will be a “badass” version of Batman

The 55-year-old actor has been cast Gotham City Police Commissioner James Gordon in Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’, which will see the ‘Twilight’ actor make his debut at the superhero, and believes audiences will be impressed by Robert’s take on the character.

Jeffrey revealed “Robert is gonna do his thing, and we were working within a Matt Reeves vision, so you know, Robert is doing what Robert does and it’s gonna be pretty badass I think.”

The ‘Westworld’ actor explained that he and Robert forged a bond on set to represent the dynamic between Batman and his ally in the police force.

He said: “I loved working with him, I love his take and his energy and the way that he kind of brought different levels to different parts of the story. And we work off of one another.

“I just tried to give him Gordon things, and he did his Batman thing.”

Jeffrey has also reprised his role as Felix Leiter in the ‘James Bond’ movie ‘No Time To Die’ and is pleased to appear alongside Daniel Craig in his final film as 007.

He explained: “I am glad to have been on this little journey. This is the third one I have done, was there at the start when Daniel kicked it off, and I have just really enjoyed watching him take on the responsibility of this thing and just kind of grow into it.

“There was a lot of weird stuff being said at the start when he got this role, about how he would do and what would become of the franchise, and he just rocked it.”

Wright has also praised Daniel for making the role of 007 “his own” and leaving the long-running franchise in a stronger position than when he first took the part.

The star said: “He has just taken it and made it his own, and he has left it in, I think, in a stronger place than it was when he got there, so I am really proud of what he has done, and really proud to have been a part of it, and now to seal it off at the end, is really cool.”

The Batman is being described as ‘radically different’ from past versions of the Caped Crusader, and here’s how different it will be report ukshowbizgossip

Robert Pattinson’s Batman has to be radically different from past versions of the Caped Crusader for different reasons. First off, a different Batman fits Pattinson’s style better, and will surely give a (positive) twist to his career. Pattinson is best remembered for playing Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and Edward Cullen in The Twilight Saga, the latter being a role that marked his career for years, but he has worked hard to shake it off. Pattinson has taken on challenging roles in movies that are far from what Twilight is, as are David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis and the Safdie brothers’ Good Time, getting a lot of praise for his performances. A “radically different” Batman, then, fits with Pattinson’s acting style and will be another challenge for him to take and make his.

Warner Bros. is giving Bruce Wayne another chance on the big-screen in Matt Reeves’ The Batman, with Robert Pattinson now playing the title character, and who has been described as “radically different” – and here’s why. Batman has become one of the most popular and important superheroes in history, and as such, he hasn’t been limited to the comic book pages and has branched out to other media, most notably film. Batman’s history on the big screen began in the 1940s with two serial movies and continued in the 1960s with an adaptation of the TV series starring Adam West and Burt Ward, but the Caped Crusader reached popularity in this realm thanks to Tim Burton’s Batman and Batman Returns in 1989 and 1992.

The Batman are still being kept under wraps, but it’s known that it will feature more than one villain (with Paul Dano’s The Riddler being the main threat) and that it will introduce the audience to a younger Bruce Wayne than in previous versions but without being an origin story. Nolan’s trilogy began with the origin story of Batman, and while the Burton-Schumacher movies weren’t origin stories either, Burton did go back to it in Batman, as his version of the Joker (Jack Nicholson) turned out to be the man who killed Thomas and Martha Wayne. The previous versions were also already mature and experienced vigilantes, while Pattinson will be in his second year of crime-fighting and thus is a much younger Bruce, and his story will also focus on the detective side of the character, which previous versions left aside.

The Batman is released March 4, 2022
