• "Twilight" star Robert Pattinson revealed an inside look at his preparation for his role as the new Batman 
  • Pattinson, 33, shared that he has always been drawn to the iconic DC superhero 
  • Although he felt "powerful" when he wore Batman's batsuit, the actor said that the way to put it on was "pretty humiliating"

Robert Pattinson openly shared how he is preparing for his new Batman role, as well as his amusingly awkward way of trying on the superhero suit.

The “Twilight” star is officially taking on the Batman role for the DC Extended Universe. The actor, who will be turning 34 this May 13, revealed his personal views regarding the DC character and talked about his film career in an interview with Style. And although his current part is definitely different from his previous roles, Pattinson shared that he has always had a fascination for the iconic hero’s nature.

“I’ve always found Batman interesting. He’s struggling a bit, especially in some [versions] of the story. He doesn’t know if he’s that great or not. That’s kind of interesting, walking the line,” the “Twilight” star said.

Pattinson feels drawn to the role he was cast to play and also expressed how he “felt a connection it.” In turn, the “Remember Me” star was more encouraged to get ahold of the part.

“The role has a ‘power’ which is why everyone is attracted to it. It’s an unidentifiable thing … I remember watching the Tim Burton 'Batman' movies as a kid … I was obsessed with them,” he added.

Becoming the man behind his idolized DC character definitely seems like Pattinsons’ fantasy has been fulfilled. The actor shared that donning the costume alone made him “feel powerful immediately.”

“You do feel powerful immediately. And it’s pretty astonishing,” he said.

But what the “Breaking Dawn” star did not expect was how that power came with a price — an awkwardly humiliating one at that. Pattinson dished that Batman’s batsuit was difficult to put on and even forced him to succumb to some uncomfortable means.

“You’ve got five people trying to shove you into something. Once you’ve got it on, it’s like: ‘Yeah, I feel strong, I feel tough, even though I had to have someone squeezing my butt cheeks into the legs’,” the actor quipped.

More on Gotham’s cryptic hero guardian, Pattinson’s exploration of the Batman role most definitely came as a no-brainer given his keen interest in the DC character. The actor revealed that it was something that “appealed” to him, emphasizing how “Batman” movies cast adequate leads and are often spearheaded by good directors.

“…it’s got a legacy and lineage to it. It’s never been something that seemed like just a cash-in,” Pattinson stated.

Pattinsons’ “The Batman” was originally slated for release on June 25, 2021. But due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic that has caused several movies to delay releases, filming was forced to halt in mid-March, Cinema Blend reported.

As of late, no recent announcements have been made with regards to when production will once again resume. Yet it was reported that Warner Bros. has planned to push the new Batman franchise to Oct. 21, 2021 instead.
