After being a part of the supernatural saga, Robert Pattinson is all set to enter the superhero world. With The Batman, the talented actor will be playing the role of the dark knight. Fans are curious to see how the Twilight actor plays the character.
A lot of actors who play any superhero for the first time take inspiration from other actors who play similar roles. Even Robert Pattinson had looked up to several Hollywood stars who have played or play superheroes. In an interview with Healthy For Men magazine, The Batman star revealed how he admires Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth and The Rock. To help him with physical transformation for his character, Robert looked up to these actors to help him give his best.
The Batman actor said, “In every project I’ve ever taken on, I’ve come into it wanting to learn and achieve new things. That’s usually in the embodiment of a character, and someone who has a different personality to me; but taking on a full physical transformation as well feels even more exciting. Any actor will go through periods where they’ll hesitate and question whether they can live up to a character in a script, or the expectations that go with it. You look at the true warriors of the superhero genre — Hemsworth, The Rock, Downey Jr, Evans — and wonder if you’re putting yourself in the wrong place. And yet, having spoken to a few, I know everyone is nervous when the opportunity comes about.”
Robert Downey Jr is known for playing the character of Iron Man in Marvel films. Similarly, Chris Evans played Captain America and Chris Hemsworth plays Thor for MCU. On the other hand, The Rock will be seen as Black Adam in the DC universe. Now, Pattinson will soon join the DC world with Matt Reeves film.
