In an interview last year, Robert Pattison said that Batman doesn't count as a superhero because he lacks superpowers.
“Batman’s not a superhero. It doesn’t count. You need to have, like, magical powers to be a superhero.”
"Batman’s not a hero, though. He’s a complicated character," Pattinson added. "I don’t think I could ever play a real hero—there’s always got to be something a little bit wrong. I think it’s because one of my eyes is smaller than the other one."
But now in a recent interview with Time Out, Pattinson is now a apologizing for these comments in a joking manner.
“I wasn’t educated about the subject. People got very angry about it. It’s bizarre. I still can’t understand the argument. Okay, he’s a superhero, I’m sorry! The next headline: ‘Pattinson retracts: Batman is, in fact, a superhero. He takes it back.'”
The Batman cast includes Robert Pattinson as Batman, Zoe Kravitz as Catman, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, Jeffrey Wright as Jim Gordon, Paul Dano as Edward Nygma a.k.a The Riddler, John Turturro as Camine Falcone, Jayme Lawson for an unknown role and it will be directed by Matt Reeves.
The Batman will premiere in theaters on June 25, 2021.
