Robert Pattinson ‘couldn’t take his Batman costume off’ – Film News |


Robert Pattinson couldn’t remove his costume on the set of ‘The Batman’.

The 35-year-old actor portrays Matt Reeves’ iconic blockbuster character, and the filmmaker was so “a perfectionist” that Robert couldn’t pull off his costume.

The Hollywood star told SFX magazine: “I guess in some great movies people can kind of make a phone call. On that, there’s a legacy of really, really good movies – there’s never really been misses, so everyone brings their A game.

“Plus the way Matt also directs, he’s such a perfectionist. But you’re never really off set from the second you come in in the morning. It’s not like you can go back to a tape -announcement or whatever. Especially me…I could I’m not even taking the costume off!”

The ‘Tenet’ star was screen tested in Val Kilmer’s ‘Batman Forever’ suit in 1995, and he had to be ‘drained of fluid’ because the thick suit made him sweat so much.

Matt once said: “Rob did his first [screen test] on his own and he was literally wearing, I believe, Val Kilmer’s Batsuit.

“Who, by the way, the moment [Pattinson] putting it on was a bit of a crazy time.”

The ‘Twilight’ star thinks it was a combination of a latex catsuit and being “incredibly nervous” that made him sweat so much.

Robert said: “It was crazy. But I remember putting it on and thinking, ‘That’s impossible. It will be absolutely impossible.

“I mean, wearing some sort of two-inch-thick rubber suit, or a latex suit, and being incredibly jumpy and full of adrenaline all the time.

“I remember we did two takes and people were just like, ‘What can we do about the sweat?’ They were like, ‘Nothing! Nothing that can be done.’ I must have been drained of cash.”
