The Batman is already creating a buzz although it is not due to hit theaters until summer 2021. This is in part to its star-studded cast that includes Robert Pattinson, Zoe Kravitz, Jeffrey Wright, John Turturro and more.
He goes on to say that he was not worried about the inevitable backlash he will get from fans who demand very specific things of Batman.
The Twilight star said that he is already remembering what it is like to talk about a movie where there is an expectation. He added that whenever he says anything, people respond, ‘Argh! You idiot!’.
So, what would he do should The Batman tank because of his poor performance? As Entertainment Weekly notes of the interview, Pattinson will (jokingly) let it all hang out in another variety of cinema production. Per The Guardian:
He’s already sick of the questions. He just wants to get on with making the film. “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!”
I point out it’s a lot to live up to. “But there is no harsher critic of myself than myself, so I don’t need to worry about anyone else.”
And what will he do if all of his worst-case scenarios play out? If he never gets Batman’s vibe? He thinks for a minute, then tosses back the head and gives the big giggle. “Porn,” he says. “But art-house porn.”
