Most people know that Robert Pattinson is one of the most popular British actors currently in Hollywood. In fact, the actor is so well-known that he even has a Twitter account where he occasionally tweets about movies and other pop culture related topics. But did you know that he’s been secretly working on a mysterious new project for the past two years?
Pattinson hasn’t released any details about his new project, but thanks to his decision to go public about his involvement in the DC Extended Universe, we may now know more about his role. Recently, fans have been speculating that he could be playing either Batman or Bane in the upcoming 2019 film Batman vs. Bane. If this is true, it would be yet another incredible performance by the English actor!
Batman Or Bane?
Based on the trailers and the first few photos from the set, it is very clear that Robert Pattinson is putting his heart and soul into the role of Bane. For years, the actor has been playing spoiled rich boys with bad attitudes in a variety of movies and TV shows, and it seems like he is finally stepping out of his comfort zone and exploring a darker character. This might be the reason why Batman vs. Bane has been touted as one of the most influential films of the next generation. With the creative team behind The Dark Knight Rises — including director Christopher Nolan and writer Michael Arndt — currently working on the new Batman solo film, it is very likely that we will see a darker Batman in the future.
At this point, it is not known which of the two iconic villains Pattinson will portray in Batman vs. Bane. In the comics, Bane is often considered the nemesis of Batman, with the two joining forces to destroy him. But over the years, Bane has become a bigger and bigger influence on the Dark Knight, and now that they are both set to appear in the same film, their relationship is sure to be explored. In fact, it is possible that they could become friends after all this time, which would be a shocking turnaround for Batman and his foes.
As for what will become of Bruce Wayne in the 2020 movie sequel, it is unclear. After turning a profit of over $100 million domestically and over $300 million worldwide with The Dark Knight trilogy, director Christopher Nolan may find it difficult to return to the lighter themes of his first two films. In addition, the actor who plays the part of Batman will be 49 years old in 2025, a ripe old age for a comic book movie hero.
What Does This Mean For Robert Pattinson As An Actor?
In a recent interview with Elle, the actor opened up about his decision to play such iconic villains and the potential effects it could have on his career. “I’ve been fortunate in that I’ve worked with some of the best directors in the world. I’ve been able to experiment with different types of roles and try new things,” he said. “Sometimes you know you’re in for something special when it starts out as a small part. That’s usually how it works with small parts – you do a few, and then they want more. When they see how you handle a difficult character, they have trust in you to play a more sensitive or complex part.”
This is quite an admirable position for an actor to be in. Few people are fortunate enough to have the opportunity to experiment with different roles in order to grow as an artist, so it is important to be open to such suggestions from your director and other cast members. Especially since these parts often come with a built-in audience due to their iconic nature. Sometimes all it takes is a little bit of change in order to make the world of cinema a little bit more exciting!
So, what does this potentially mean for Robert Pattinson as an actor? It could mean a significant career boost, as he already has quite a following thanks to his extensive role on the big screen. Or, it could mean that he will be unable to get certain parts due to his infamous bad boy image. We shall have to wait and see.
Overall, it seems like Robert Pattinson is setting himself up for a major career resurgence. Not only does he have one of the most interesting characters to play in the upcoming Batman vs. Bane, but he is also lined up to co-star with one of the greatest actors of all time, Tom Hanks, in the upcoming adaptation of Mayer Hawthorne’s classic The Black Dahlia. As for what this means for the future of Batman, it seems quite clear that the Dark Knight is in for a major resurgence as well, particularly with the upcoming Batman vs. Bane.
