Robert Pattinson is one of the most popular and handsome actors currently working in Hollywood. With his chiseled features and athletic build, it’s hard not to look at him and think “damn, he looks like he could play Batman.”

While we await the release of the next installment in the Batman series, The Batman, we can use reliable statistics to predict just how tall and muscular Robert Pattinson would be in real life.

The Stats Don’t Lie

Although the actor has yet to publicly confirm it, we’ve learned a few things about him from his film appearances. The first is that he is a pretty generous individual, as his agent has confirmed that his favorite charities are Children’s Cancer Fund and Teenage Cancer Trust. Additionally, we know that he enjoys eating chocolate and playing golf. Finally, his height and weight have been revealed to be 6’2″ and approximately 245 pounds, respectively.

How Does He Stack Up Against The Caped Crusader?

Based on these numbers, Pattinson would be tall enough to reach the chest of the six-foot-two-inch Batman. However, he would still need a pair of booster seats to fit comfortably in the Dark Knight’s car. When it comes to weight, there is no question that the actor could easily fill up the muscular suit that Bruce Wayne wears on the big screen. In fact, if Batman ever broke into a fast food restaurant, he would undoubtedly serve as the greatest Happy Meal ever designed.

What Does This Mean For The Future of The Batman Franchise?

If we examine the last 10 years of the Batman franchise, it’s easy to spot a consistent pattern. The Dark Knight consistently struggles with his own body-mass index (BMI), which measures a person’s weight in comparison to their height. The franchise began with its prime example of a thin and muscular Batman. In Batman Begins, the actor Lee chiming plays Bruce Wayne, and he is clearly undernourished. Yet, throughout his adventures, we see him consistently eating well and training hard to maintain that ripped look. In fact, at one point, the Joker even refers to Wayne as “the skinny Batman.”

When we compare this to the actor Aaron Paul’s depiction of Jesse the Superhero, who is a few inches shorter and weighs more than 25 pounds less than the former Dark Knight, we can clearly see how the writing is on the wall. The next Batman will most likely have to be considerably taller and heavier to look like a true successor to the Caped Crusader.

Additionally, it’s clear that the movie industry has shifted in favor of men with more muscle and less fat. In recent years, Hollywood has become obsessed with creating blockbusters that are as exciting as they are profitable. One of the great things about the internet is that it has given individuals like us the opportunity to examine the trends and discover what is succeeding and flourishing in today’s world of film and television. For example, Jesse the Superhero and the TV shows Daredevil and The Flash, all of which premiered in 2016, feature much more toned and fit actors than we have seen in previous incarnations of the superhero franchise.

With all of this in mind, it’s obvious that the future of the Batman franchise lies in creating athletic superheroes who are not only exciting to behold but are also able to hold their own against some of the most dangerous villains that the world has ever seen.
