In the new trailer for The Batman, in which he will make his debut as the Gotham City star, Robert Pattinson shows off his action hero moves.
Though he's a long way from Forks, some may argue that the 35-year-old actor channeled his vampiric strength while fighting crime as the dark superhero in Matt Reeves' upcoming Warner Bros. film, which will be released on March 4, 2022.
The new trailer, which was unveiled on October 16 at the DC FanDome event, featured Pattinson in his armored Batsuit fighting The Penguin (played by Colin Farrell, who has completely transformed into the character).
As the Bat-Signal appears onscreen, Pattinson says in a voice-over, "Fear is a tool." "When that light appears in the sky, it is more than just a signal. It's a forewarning."
In flashbacks, he is dodging bullets, throwing punches, and zooming through the city in his Batmobile, saying, "I don't care what happens to me."
Later, Batman and The Penguin appear to engage in a high-speed car chase. "I've got you!" teases Farrell, who is completely unrecognizable in the role.
Playing Catwoman, Zoë Kravitz also stuns in the trailer from the second viewers see her laced up thigh-high boot step out of a vehicle. "I can take care of myself," she says, before donning a red hot wig in another action-packed scene.
"Maybe we're not so different," she tells Batman during an intimate moment. "Who are you under there?"
Pattinson, who recently had a rare date night with Suki Waterhouse, recently told Variety that his audition for The Batman was "probably the craziest thing I've ever done" in terms of his Hollywood career.
During his audition, he tried on the Batsuit, recalling, "I wore it. 'It does feel quite transformative!' I remember saying to Matt. 'I'm hoping it does!' he said. You're literally dressed as Batman.'"
After donning the suit, the Twilight star claimed he felt "immediately" and "very powerful." "And it's pretty amazing, something incredibly difficult to get into, so the ritual of getting into it is pretty humiliating," he explained. "You have five people attempting to push you into something. When you put it on, you think to yourself, 'Yeah, I feel strong, I feel tough, even though I had to have someone squeezing my butt cheeks into the legs.'"
