Robert Pattinson has officially left his beloved Twilight character as the trailer of The Batman released.
The highly anticipated trailer of The Batman was released on Saturday during the virtual event, DC FanDome. Robert made a surprise appearance at the beginning of the movie’s panel before the fans went wild over his new role.
The actor said that they were in the beginning stages of production when the novel coronavirus hit. He revealed he is really nervous to go back to work and continue to play the “beloved” character. “I’ve always been a massive fan,” the 34-year-old star said, which was captured and shared on YouTube by fans.
Robert said he is not really allowed to reveal much and he hands it over to Matt Reeves. He said Matt can determine what can and cannot be said. The actor continued, “But I do know that if you stick around to the end… there’s a cool surprise.”
After the trailer released, revealing that the movie will take place with the iconic superhero. However, Matt revealed that 25 percent of the filming is done. In the short clip, Robert wasn’t the only famous face on-screen. Zoë Kravitz was spotted in her Catwoman suit, while an unrecognizable Colin Farrell transformed into the Penguin.
It is still unclear when the movie will be released. However, the studio cleverly used question marks in a few places of the actual numbers. It is anticipated to be released by next year.
Last year in an interview, Robert opened about his shock of getting the part just like his fans. “It’s kind of insane,” he told Esquire U.K. in October 2019. “I was so far away from ever thinking it was a realistic prospect. I literally do not understand how I’ve got it, at all.”
Obviously now we know why Robert was cast. Watch the trailer below.
