Unless you have been under a rock, or vacationing in a place with no WiFi, you would have heard the news that Robert Pattinson is our new cape crusader. This news rattled the internet, and gifted us with tons of glorious memes in the process. Pattinson has stayed out of blockbuster movies since his glittery vampire days, choosing smaller movie projects that allowed him to stretch his acting range.
According to THR, Pattinson’s selection came down to the wearing of the bat suit. It makes sense since the actor playing Batman needs to be convincing in the costume. Bale had to do the same when he was auditioning for Nolan’s Batman. This pivotal moment swung things in Pattinson’s favour, with Nicholas Hoult, the other actor in the running, not quite measuring up.
