Robert Pattinson recently revealed that his portrayal of Edward Cullen in Twilight nearly cost him his job as Batman.
Twilight’s Robert Pattinson Almost Got Killed The Joker:
Robert Pattinson, the actor best known for his role as Batman, had an unusual method of entering the character during the early stages of his career. Twilight’s Edward Cullen character almost cost him the role that catapulted him to stardom, he recently admitted. As Edward Cullen in the 2008 film adaptation of Stephanie Meyer’s novel Twilight, Pattinson became a household name before he appeared in The Batman. In the years since, the British actor has taken advantage of his newfound notoriety to appear in films like The Lighthouse, The Devil Always Wins, and the eagerly anticipated The Batman. However, he had to overcome many obstacles on his way to becoming the Dark Knight.

Edward Cullen’s portrayal in the Twilight films was a conflict between Pattinson’s vision of the character and how the studio wanted him to portray it, according to the actor in an interview with GQ. However, Pattinson admits that at the time, he had no idea how to portray the character other than to portray it as “emo.” They told him to “do the opposite” of what he had been doing or he would “be fired by the end of the day” because of the tension in his relationship with his manager and agent. The only reason Edward Cullen smiles in Twilight is because of the threat, which is why Pattinson refused to play the character as “lighthearted” because he believes it would have made him appear “even more like a psychopath.” Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire’s Cedric Diggory cemented Robert Pattinson’s early methods of putting himself in the character’s shoes. For his role in a haunted maze, the young actor had read about method acting and thought he needed a physical workout to prepare. “I remember punching myself,” the actor recalls, “and screaming into a pillow.” Pattinson admits he still struggled to get into character without making the character too intense and feeling “infuriated” while filming Twilight. Aside from Twilight and Harry Potter being two of the worst examples of Pattinson’s emo tendencies, the actor’s default intensity may be exactly what makes him the perfect choice for The Batman.
Early screenings of Pattinson’s:
The Batman caution viewers that it is complex and may even cause controversy because of his alleged obsession with the role of Bruce Wayne. Pattinson has a history of portraying characters who are both intense and emotional, making him an ideal choice to play Batman.
There is no doubt that the actor has his own take on the hero:
Calling him “a freak,” and deeming the hero’s storey “really sad.” Pattinson will be able to use all of the intensity and emotion he was prohibited from using in Twilight on this character.
