I haven’t been this excited about a Vanity Fair cover since the last time I went to see the Dark Knight Rises.
The cover is a stunning shot of Robert Pattinson as the famous Batman, complete with Batsuit and cape. For years, I’ve been a huge fan of Batman, and ever since I saw Pattinson in that Batsuit, I knew he was the one to play the iconic superhero.
Batman was first introduced to the world in 1939, and since then, he’s become an enduring pop culture icon. Over the past 80 years, he’s been featured on TV shows, in comic books, on the big and small screen, and even voiced by Hollywood A-listers like Jack Nicholson and Kevin Conroy.
I’ve always tried to live up to the legendary hero’s example of courage, justice, and protecting the innocent. While I’ve never had the pleasure of meeting Nicholson or Conroy in real life, I’ve always tried to be the best Batman I could be.
‘The Most Beautiful And Powerful Woman In The World’
The cover features a beautiful and classy Victoria’s Secret Angel alongside arguably the best-looking man in Hollywood. It’s no secret that Victoria’s Secret is one of the most recognizable brands in the world. It’s been around since the 1950s, and its annual fashion shows have become must-see events for fashion lovers around the globe.
The brand is best known for its famous beauty pageant, where it presents its iconic ‘Angels’ at the end of the season. The annual event has been broadcast on TV for decades, and became such a popular platform for the brand that it eventually spun off into its own standalone event in 2016 called the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Since then, it has become the industry standard for celebrating the best in lingerie and swimwear fashion.
Now that Pattinson is gracing the cover of Vanity Fair, it’s guaranteed that not only will everyone know who he is, but they’ll also undoubtedly recognize his incredible good looks.
Pattinson’s Performance Will Revolutionize The Role
When I was a little girl, I always looked up to Batman, and as I got older, he became my inspiration. Batman is the first character I’d role-play, and in my fantasies, I’d often imagine myself in his iconic Batsuit.
What’s more is that Pattinson’s performance as Batman in the just-released Birds of Prey (2020) was, in my opinion, one of the best things I’d ever seen. It was pure genius. I hope you’ll agree.
Birds of Prey tells the story of Barbara Gordon, who after becoming the famous detective, Oracle, eventually takes up the cowl as Batman’s successor and protects Gotham City from crime. A year after its premiere, Birds of Prey is still being discussed as one of the best superhero films of all time; it currently has a 76% on Rotten Tomatoes.
I was lucky enough to see the movie a few weeks ago, and in addition to being an incredible feat of acting, it was also extremely visually stunning. Director Cathy Yan truly knows how to make a movie, and she uses every second of it to maximum effect.
I knew that if I saw Batman in person, I’d finally be able to channel the amazing performance I’d seen on screen, and I was not disappointed. Pattinson embodies the character, and it feels like I’ve been transported back to that dark and exciting time where Batman’s fight for truth and justice is as important today as it ever was.
Pattinson’s Personal Life Inspires The Characters He Plays
It’s been a while since I last checked in with you, but personally, I’ve never been happier or more inspired. While shooting the film, Birds of Prey, in addition to being one of the best superhero films, it was also one of the most important films for me. It’s not often that you get the opportunity to play a character that means as much to you as Batman does to me; if anyone deserves to be inspired by their personal life, it’s Robert Pattinson.
The film is dedicated to the memory of George ‘Georgy’ Pepperman, one of the greatest British detectives of all time. In the early 1960s, Pepperman helped bring down Great Train Robber, Tommy, or the Flying Dutchman. Unfortunately, he suffered a stroke shortly after the film’s premiere, and passed away in 1966. In addition to Batman, Pepperman is also responsible for inspiring the character of Sherlock Holmes, among others.
The film’s plot centers around Barbara Gordon’s (played by Viola Davis) investigation into the mysterious disappearance of her father, Harvey Bullock (John Tuturro). While on the search for answers, she stumbles upon the dark underside of Gotham, where criminals, gangs, and terrifying creatures roam free; it’s up to her and Batman to bring justice to the city, and in doing so, protect its people and shine a light on the darkness.
Throughout the film, we see elements from the 1960s to modern-day Gotham, and even a little bit of Sherlock Holmes. It’s a fascinating mix that makes for an incredibly immersive and captivating experience.
My favorite scene in the whole movie has to be when Batman and Harvey Bullock team up to stop a pack of wild dogs from attacking a young girl. It’s just so wonderfully cinematic, and has this great bit of tension where you’re not sure if the duo are going to be able to save the day, or if the dogs are going to win. It really is a masterpiece of a scene, and an incredible inspiration for my own work. It feels like a scene right out of an old school Sherlock Holmes tale, and it really does fit perfectly with the era of the film, and even makes you question if perhaps the great detective wasn’t actually a creation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the author of Sherlock Holmes.
The film’s soundtrack is also amazing, and was curated by Hans Zimmer. It features music from the 1960s to the present day, and it truly does evoke the era of the film. It will be released on March 25th, and is already available for pre-order.
It seems like every year, Hollywood puts out a new movie about Batman. For those of you who are still dreaming of becoming the next Batman, take heart, because the role has been filled before.
Over the years, we’ve seen many great actors try out for the role of Batman, and while they may have been great in their own right, none of them really stood out amongst the rest. It’s not that they weren’t able to embody the character; it’s just that none of them were able to bring something new to the role that we hadn’t seen before.
Now, with Robert Pattinson gracing the cover of Vanity Fair, and his performance as Batman taking the world by storm, it’s evident that he’s the man for the job. Not only does he have the good looks to pull off the role, but he also has an incredible passion for Batman, something his character is clearly inspired by.
While his performance as the legendary Batman will no doubt excite fans across the world, it’s also important to remember that this is no ordinary mortal taking on such a legendary character. It’s a testament to Pattinson’s incredible talent that he’s been able to bring some of the most iconic characters in history to life, and it’s an honor to have seen him do it. What an incredible achievement.
