It’s no secret that Robert Pattinson is one of Hollywood’s most beautiful men. With his classic good looks, charming personality, and incredible musical talents, he’s a total Hollywood dreamboat.
While most of the world was eagerly anticipating the release of Suicide Squad, the actor was hard at work putting on his performance as The Dark Knight’s (Batman’s) sidekick, Harvey Dent.
Batman fansite Batboost crunched the numbers and discovered that, in terms of muscle definition, Robert Pattinson’s Harvey Dent isn’t actually that much different from the actor himself. Here’s the breakdown:
The first thing you’ll notice about Suicide Squad is that it places a huge emphasis on physical training and nutrition. Taskmaster Rick Flag (Liam Neeson) pushes the men to the brink of death and teaches them to fight and survive in extreme conditions. It’s a gritty portrayal of what it really means to be a superhero.
The statistics for the film’s characters were then used to determine how much muscle they actually have. Batboost‘s resident nutritionist, Heidi Beck, used a formula based on the characters’ heights and weights to determine each character’s body fat percentage. She then used the data to determine each character’s muscle definition. From there, it was just a matter of finding the corresponding images of each character from Suicide Squad and tracing their arms and legs.
It’s no secret that Robert Pattinson is a bit of a meathead. The Twilight actor is known for his love of fast cars, motorbikes, and heavy metal music. Between work and vacation, he doesn’t spend much time in the gym.
It wasn’t always like this. Back in 2011, Pattinson was in the midst of his “twilight madness” and was regularly working out with his trainer, Gunther Von Fulpius. As the years passed, the workouts became less frequent and eventually stopped altogether. Now that he’s a bit older and wiser, Pattinson is apparently committed to changing his lifestyle and is working hard to get back into shape.
Who’s The Fastest Moving Character?
If you came into the conversation with the goal of comparing Robert Pattinson’s Suicide Squad character to the actor himself, you’ll be disappointed to learn that he isn’t the fastest character. That honor goes to Deadshot (Shawn Williamson), who is so quick that he fires two shots (one bullet and one blade) in under a second. In the comics, Deadshot is actually a prodigy, possessing “superhuman speed”. Much like Bruce Banner, the father of the Incredible Hulk, who is able to control the beast that is inside him thanks to his disciplined and controlled exercise routine, Deadshot is able to keep his body in perfect condition by working out regularly.
According to Wikipedia, “Deadshot is a former special operative of the U.S. military.[…] He is a highly skilled sniper and marksman who also happens to be a brilliant martial artist.”
While Deadshot is the fastest character in Suicide Squad, perhaps the most interesting revelation about the film is that it actually focuses on the villainous nature of most of its characters. Other than Deadshot, the other villains are basically two-dimensional stereotypes with no redeeming qualities. But that’s a topic for another article. For now, let’s just marvel at the phenomenal physical transformation that Robert Pattinson is able to achieve.
