Robert Pattinson is as shocked as anyone to be playing Batman.
The star of “The Lighthouse” was announced earlier this year as the next actor to don the cape and cowl of the caped crusader in an upcoming film, and he told Esquire that “it’s kind of insane.
“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.”
“The Batman”, which is being written and directed by Matt Reeves, is also expected to star Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon, with Jonah Hill in talks to play a villain.
The film is scheduled for release in 2021.
