Pattinson is next in a long list of actors to portray Batman on the big screen, following in the footsteps of names like Michael Keaton, Val Kimer, George Clooney, Christian Bale, and Ben Affleck.
There are some serious downsides to playing a character that has been done so many times before, by so many other legendary artists, but Pattinson sees those downsides as benefits, excited by the challenge they present.
“I think sometimes the downsides, which I’ve definitely thought about, seem to be benefits,” Pattinson told GQ in a recent interview. “I like the fact that not only are there very, very well-made versions of the character that seem quite definitive, but I was thinking that there are multiple definitive interpretations of the character. ”
“I was watching the creation of” Batman & Robin “the other day. And even earlier, George Clooney said he was concerned about the fact that it had already been done, that much of the ground that the character should cover was already covered. And that was in 1997 ”.

According to Pattinson, the fun of taking on the role of Batman in 2020 is finding an angle that no one else has explored before. His version of the character has to be something that has not been done in the past, which is difficult when you think of all the different actors who have played Batman over the years.
Pattinson’s version of Batman will certainly be different than any other version that has appeared before, so it makes sense that fans are really looking forward to seeing what he brings to the table.
