Who doesn’t love a good mystery? One that is tantalizing enough to keep us guessing is whether or not Robert Pattinson drove the Batmobile in the movie The Batman. It seems that there is a lot more to this story than meets the eye, and the clues are hidden in plain sight.
There have been numerous rumors suggesting that the 26-year-old actor drove the Batmobile, or one of its variants, in the upcoming superhero film. It has even been suggested that he was responsible for the car’s design. While none of these rumors have been officially confirmed, there are a number of reasons why they might be true. For starters, Pattinson is a very skilled driver who spent a lot of time behind the wheel of a variety of expensive vehicles, ranging from supercars to big rigs. Also, his love for fast cars and his affinity for gadgets would seem to make him an ideal candidate to be the mastermind behind such a grand design. Finally, this is the type of movie in which he could indulge in all of his favorite hobbies and pastimes, such as flying drones, tinkering with electronics, and driving fast cars.
Now, it’s not completely out of the realm of possibility that Pattinson didn’t fly the Batmobile in the movie The Batman, or one of its variants. After all, it’s not like he’s the only actor who could have played the part. However, there is a good amount of evidence that suggests he did drive one of the two cars that appear in the film. First, there is that scene in which Batman (Ben Affleck) races in a very high-speed pursuit through the streets of Gotham. In the video below, you can see that the camera catches sight of the Batmobile at one point, as it comes speeding by in the opposite direction. It then quickly zooms in for a closer look, before speeding off in the other direction. This was most likely a CG addition, but it’s tough to tell for sure.
Another scene that hints at Pattinson driving a Batmobile-like vehicle comes at the end of the film, when Batman and several of his allies are trying to figure out who framed him for the murder of Harvey Dent. After a long conversation, Batman decides to consult an old colleague, Lucius Fox (played by Gary Oldman). At the end of the scene, Pattinson’s character, Jason Bard, is seen getting out of an SUV that might be a modified Batmobile. This leads many fans to believe that he either designed or built the vehicle, and it certainly looks like it could be his work. Furthermore, the way he walks, with that swaggering gait that seems to bounce with each step, is very similar to the way that Michael Jai White’s character, Deadshot, walks. Perhaps it’s a homage to one of the most famous villains of all time?
The Mystery Unclossed
It’s always nice when a mystery is solved, but it’s even nicer when it’s one that we never knew even existed. The case of whether or not Robert Pattinson drove the Batmobile in The Batman goes to show how interconnected the world of entertainment is, and just how much we don’t know about it. Sometimes, all it takes is one little detail to put everything in its proper place. For example, if we knew that Gary Oldman’s character, Lucius Fox, was an acquaintance of Tom Hardy’s character, Bane, it would explain a lot about what’s going on in the movie. Furthermore, if we knew more about Bane and Fox’s past, perhaps we would even understand why Bane targeted the latter in the first place. It would all make a lot more sense than it does now. Perhaps, with more research, we will eventually discover the truth behind this curious rumor.
