It’s pretty well established that Robert Pattinson and Bruce Wayne are two of the biggest celebrities in the world right now. And it’s not hard to understand why. After all, not too long ago, we were barely even aware of their existence. Now, it seems, we can’t look at social media platforms like Instagram or Twitter without seeing their endless supply of glamorous photos and entertaining anecdotes.

These two superstitious individuals have managed to capture the imagination of audiences around the world. And even those who aren’t particularly interested in celebrity culture probably know who Robert Pattinson is and what he’s done. After all, the Twilight Saga made him famous. But did you know that he’s had a longstanding feud with the Batman, which has resulted in some pretty fantastic fan art?

In this article, we’ll discuss what is known about the feud between Robert Pattinson and Bruce Wayne. We’ll go over the juicy details, including the fact that apparently, they both have an unhealthy interest in cutting down trees. We’ll also analyze some of the best (and arguably the worst) pieces of art that fans have produced in their quest to be the best Robin to Batman ever. So, read on and get psyched up for the big game this week!

The Brief History Of Their Feud

If you’ve been living under a rock for the past five years, you might not know that Robert Pattinson and Bruce Wayne have had a longstanding feud. In fact, it all started in 2007 when they both appeared in the film adaptation of D.H. Holmes’s 1911 mystery novel, The Scarlet Pimpernel. For those of you who saw the film, you’ll know that Sir Lionel Léonard, played by Robert Pattinson, is the French aristocrat who helps the real Scarlet Pimpernel, a British secret agent played by Edward Norton, in overthrowing Napoleon and his government. As a result of this, they were both nominated for a Razzie Award for Worst Supporting Actor. It was their only film collaboration to date. 

The following year, they both played major roles in the film adaptation of John Grisham’s The Chamber, which also featured an appearance by J.K. Rowling. Once again, they were nominated for a Razzie Award for being the worst of the worst. And, as with The Scarlet Pimpernel, no award was given out because the nominees were deemed ineligible. However, it seems that this was the last straw. After these two films, they never really spoke to or worked with each other again. Which is a real shame, because they both have so much talent and could have done great things together.

The Reason Behind Their Feud

While it would be great to think that these two superstitious celebrities just hate each other and never got along, that simply isn’t the case. Behind the scenes, they actually got along pretty well. In fact, they even had a laugh at the expense of their feud. In an interview with Stephen Curry of Men’s Journal, Bruce Wayne discussed their relationship in the following manner:

“We’ve known each other for a while,” he said. “We were in the same theatre class at university, and we’ve kind of just stayed friends. Even though we aren’t working together anymore, we still kind of see each other as competitive friends. We always have bets on which one of us can catch the most trout, or if one of us can throw the furthest, or which one of us can run the longest. We’ve always had that kind of rivalry going on.”

It seems that their rivalry is based on a combination of factors. On one hand, they’re both extremely intelligent and successful, and they both come from privileged families. On the other hand, they’re both Type-A individuals who want to prove that they’re the best at what they do. In the end, it’s probably a matter of ego. Either one of them feels like they aren’t good enough, and so they wage war with each other. However, outside of the feud, they’re still friends and keep in contact. Maybe even a little too much contact. There’s even a rumor that they’ll be joining forces in the future to form the Dynamic Duo of Hollywood. But for now, they’re best friends, business partners, and eternal rivals.

The Evolution Of Their Feud, From Movie To Instagram

Over the past decade, the feud between Robert Pattinson and Bruce Wayne has steadily escalated. In fact, it’s almost gotten to the point where they don’t even try to hide the disdain that they have for each other any more. But as previously stated, while they may not get along in person, the internet provides an opportunity for them to show their true colors. This is most notably seen in the form of fan art.

In 2007, the year that their feud started, they both appeared in the film adaptations of D.H. Holmes’s The Scarlet Pimpernel and John Grisham’s The Chamber. For those of you who were around at the time, you may recall that neither of these films were very good. And they certainly weren’t great movies. In fact, they were both nominated for a Razzie Award for Worst Supporting Actor for their roles in these adaptations. This is probably because of their bad boy reputations and the fact that people didn’t know what to expect from them. But that was certainly not the case. They actually turned out to be pretty good films, and the Razzie Awards failed to recognize that.

In 2008, they both appeared in the film adaptation of John Grisham’s The Sum of All Fears. This was another good film, but they both received yet another nomination for their roles. And once again, they were both considered contenders for the Worst Supporting Actor Razzie. Fortunately, this time, the Academy recognized their talent and gave them both a Best Supporting Actor nomination. But it was a bittersweet victory, as they both knew that they wouldn’t be working together ever again after this incident.

In 2009, they once again appeared in the same movie together, this time playing opposing lawyers in the courtroom drama Moneyball. But even though they were on screen together, they were never actually on speaking terms. And that’s probably for the best. They don’t need to be. Moneyball was a critical and commercial success, earning over $25 million at the box office. It also won Best Picture at the 2010 Academy Awards. So, not only was it a great film, it was also a commercial and critical success. That’s gotta be worth something, right? And it’s definitely worth more than the three Razzie nominations that Moneyball received.

In 2010, they both collaborated on the fantasy film, Red, which was a box office bomb. The sequel to 2009’s critically acclaimed Green, which was also directed by Francis Lawrence, was a box office juggernaut. And it made a whole lot more money than its predecessor. But, again, it was a competition of sorts. They were both competing for the role of Reese Witherspoon’s love interest. And though he didn’t get the part, at least he was nominated for a Razzie for being the worst of the worst. It seems that these two intelligent and driven celebrities never quite fit together. Which is kind of sad, because they’re both brilliant and could have done great things together.

In 2011, came two of their biggest projects yet. The first was the critically acclaimed True Grit, in which they both appear as opposing lawyers. It was another box office hit, earning over $35 million at the box office worldwide. It also received many accolades, including three Academy Award nominations, for Best Supporting Actor, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Art Direction. The other big project released that year was The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2. It was the final part of Stephenie Meyer’s bestselling series and the sequel to 2010’s Twilight. While the first part had been an unexpected breakout hit, Breaking Dawn – Part 2 was even more of a phenomenon. It made over a billion dollars at the box office and became the seventh highest-grossing film of all time. Not bad for a couple of nobodies from England who didn’t even have a film school background!

In 2012, they both had a part in the ensemble drama Cloud Atlas. The film was based on the novel of the same name by David Mitchell and was directed by Tom Tykwer. And what a part! They both play pivotal roles in the story, which follows four very different people as they all attempt to stop an apocalyptic hurricane from destroying Earth. All of this is tied in somehow with the Little Prince, whose adventures the novel is based on. The movie premiered to mainly positive reviews but was a commercial disappointment, only making $10 million at the box office. But it’s still available on home video, which is more than can be said for many recent films. It’s also on Prime Video, which is included with an Amazon Prime membership.
