As Pattinson explained, playing Batman requires good level of physical fitness. In any case, it’s unmistakable now that he just didn’t have any desire to strive for the kind of physique that Chris Hemsworth or Dwayne Johnson typically achieve. For their respective comic book characters, the jacked arms check out. For Pattinson in The Batman, it really sounds like a less fatty methodology works better for this Bruce Wayne. Apparently, The Batman’s Bruce is more tormented than most, and if he’s investigating trouble makers as much as he’s punching them, he shouldn’t be ripped.
If anything, this incident shows how quickly things can get dramatically overemphasized these days. Pattinson inadvertently infuriated some fanboys when he kidded with regards to not working out, yet The Batman stands as one of the most anticipated movies of the year. Making a ridiculous controversy out of a throwaway remark doesn’t prompt anything productive. Perhaps Pattinson will be more cautious with his words in later interviews, however in all honesty, he most likely doesn’t need to. We could all use some humor these days, all things considered.
Pattinson clarified what he went through while training for his Batman role. Because yes, he was joking. “That truly caused issues down the road for me,” he admitted prior to going on to explain why he depended on a flippant response. Pattinson also confirmed that he did turn out for the job, and that he’s no stranger to having silly quotes follow him everlastingly, however he can chuckle about it now. He said:
“That truly caused issues down the road for me. I just always think it’s truly embarrassing to discuss how you’re working out. I think it’s like an English thing. Unless you are in the most unbelievable shape, where individuals are just genuinely curious, going, ‘How have you achieved, like, physical perfection?’ or whatever. You’re playing Batman. You need to work out. I think I was doing the interview when I was in lockdown, as well, in England. … I was in a lower stuff of working out.It’s the same thing as saying in an interview when I was like 21 that I didn’t wash my hair. It just sticks for 15 years.
With the Riddler (Paul Dano) confirmed to be the one behind the homicide spree, The Batman is uniquely positioned to dive into Bruce’s detective side more than some other big screen version of the person. Nevertheless, it’s still a superhero movie, and that brings certain expectations. In 2020, when The Batman’s production was waiting because of the pandemic, Pattinson stood out as truly newsworthy when he said he had scarcely started working out. He said at that point, “I think if you’re working out constantly, you’re a contributor to the issue.”
