The character of Batman is known for his many talents, but being a DJ is not one of them. That's where Robert Pattinson steps in.
In an interview with GQ, Pattinson revealed that while he was dressed up in full Batman attire, he would experiment musically to pass the time between shoots.
"I'd be in the tent just making ambient electronic music in the suit, looking over the cowl. There's something about the construction of the cowl that makes it very difficult to read books, so you have to kind of almost lean forward to see out of the cowl."
The cowl you ask? Well he also cleared that up, "The mask thing. The bat mask. The cowl! I kept calling it a mask. But I learned, no, no, it's the cowl"
The 35-year-old admitted that the shoot for 'The Batman' was extremely isolating, especially since it was shot during the height of COVID.
The set in London was a "bubble within a bubble, and the nature of the shoot was so kind of insular, always shooting at night, just really dark all the time, and I felt very much alone."
"Even just being in the suit all the time. You’re not really allowed out of the studio with the suit on, so I barely knew what was going on at all outside."
Pattinson admitted that filming of 'The Batman' took a massive toll on him. "I mean, I was really, really, really dead afterward. I just looked at a photo of myself from April and I looked green."
The actor infamously broke his wrist just as shooting had start back in late 2019. Then when COVID hit, the set was shoot down temporarily. Once shooting began again, Pattinson himself caught COVID, adding to a frustrating few months.
But the new Bruce Wayne said that despite the shutdowns, the role kept him going.
"I just always had this anchor of Batman. Rather than thinking you're flotsam to the news, you could feel engaged without being paralyzed by it.
"Everyone I know, if you had a little momentum going in your career or your life, then stopping, you had to have a reckoning with yourself. Whereas I was so incredibly busy the whole time, doing something that was also super high pressure, by far the hardest thing I’ve ever done…. I was still playing Batman at the end of the day. Even if the world burns down, I’ve just got to get this fucking thing out!"
'The Batman' releases in Irish cinemas March 4.
