Robert Pattinson remembers his promise to do porn if ‘The Batman’ fails

Three years ago, Robert Pattinson didn’t seem entirely convinced that Batman was the success it is today. Apparently, the actor was concerned about the impact of the film, which was then in production. Might as well advertise, while promoting Lighthouse by Robert Eggers, who would “do porn” if the film didn’t succeed. A comment that was part of an interview in Guardian and who is now the subject of jokes on social networks.

The outlandish comment was part of a long conversation with the reporter @alex_moshakis, in which Pattinson expressed his concerns. For the date, the actor had just been chosen as the new face of Gotham. And the reactions couldn’t be angrier. As usual, a considerable number of fans voiced their complaints about the selection. And there was also a wide discussion about whether Robert Pattinson, known mainly for the The Twilight SagaI could play Batman.

For Pattinson, who was celebrating accolades after his performance in Lighthouse, tried to return to a strange space. For years, the actor had to deal with public skepticism, which did not stop associate it with the vampire saga. The new doubts and criticisms surrounding his ability to play an ambiguous and complex character as a DC anti-hero were hard to bear. Thus, in the interview with the British newspaper, Robert Pattinson commented that “he could devote himself to author pornography” if Batman by Matt Reeves did not have the expected success.

A long journey with Robert Pattinson

The actor’s doubts were understandable. After all, Pattinson would have to face the long shadow of the Nolanverse and Christian Bale’s so-called portrayal of Batman. Too, the character’s uncomfortable journey through an irregular saga He had had all kinds of ups and downs.

From Burton’s sinister gothic take on Schumacher’s meltdown, the franchise has proven unpredictable. And if the version of Matt Reeves had not had the expected success? Robert Pattinson made it clear to Guardianin what seemed like a nervous joke: would do porn. Or at best, he would be taken off screen for a while.
