Robert Pattinson says that Jennifer Lopez would be an “awesome” Batman… and Lopez herself seems to agree.
Wait… what? Let’s start from the beginning.
In an interview between the two for Variety’s “Actors on Actors”, Lopez told Pattinson that she thought he would be great in 2021’s The Batman.
“I think you’ll be a great Batman. An awesome Batman!” Lopez said. “Seriously, because he’s a dark character.”
Pattinson reflected back, saying “You would be as well!”
The Twilight alum revealed that the idea of him becoming Batman was “a strange one with me,” and said that even his agent second-guessed the idea.
That being said, Pattinson came around to it – but is adamant about not portraying Batman as “someone who’s heroic.”
“I have no interest whatsoever in playing someone who’s heroic,” said Pattinson. “The only time I want to play someone who an audience knows they’re supposed to like is when they really shouldn’t like them. That’s the only time.”
“[Bruce Wayne is] a very troubled person,” the actor continued. “I always found it interesting that Batman is always struggling a little bit, especially in some iterations of the story. He doesn’t know if he’s that great or not, and that’s kind of interesting.”
