Robert Pattinson Hopes "Batman" Role Won't Be As Big As "Twilight"

Speaking to TODAY, Robert Pattinson shared how he's excited to begin working on The Batman. I don't think I could ever play a real hero - there's always got to be something a little bit wrong.

Now that he has returned to the world of blockbuster films and is playing one of the most beloved characters in pop culture history, the 33-year-old actor also told Geist that he hopes the fans of DC Comics don't come at him the way that Twilight fans did a decade ago. "I'm like, 'It doesn't count, you need to have magical powers to be a superhero'". When the casting of the next Batman was announced by Matt, there was a polarising reaction for the Twilight (2008) star as some believed he wasn't the best choice for the Dark Knight while some felt he was an underrated choice. The actor confessed to Sunday Today that you can feel the vibe in the Warner Brothers Studio and that it's a role one can't say no to. That's when Pattinson waded into complicated character waters.

"Batman's not a superhero..."

The revelation came last week, when Eilish stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live . "Do you know who Madonna is?" he asks. All that said, if a Billie Eilish/Van Halen collaboration develops, we'll be the first to let you know.

"I think Matt Reeves has got a really good direction for it". He's not the golden boy, unlike nearly every other comic-book character'. Pattinson played the vampire Edward Cullen in the young adult films, which propelled him and Kristen Stewart to global stardom.

"There's a part of me that just thinks it's impossible to be what happened with Twilight because it was so sudden". Though, he laughed, "I'm hoping it won't be people hanging outside my place". "I just think I'm kind of boring and old now, so it's fine".

Acclaimed actor John Turturro has also been cast in The Batman, joining the likes of Zoe Kravitz and Paul Dano in Matt Reeves' adaptation of the DC franchise story.
