The Batman voice. It’s the staple of any Batman performance. I mean, mostly. Let’s be real. Few actors made a huge effort to distinguish between their Bruce Wayne and Batman voices until recently. Sure, he’d be a bit gruffer, but it wasn’t until Batman Begins, where Christian Bale put super gruff voice, that many of us started to pay attention. Or maybe I’m just projecting.
Regardless, we often think about the Batman voice when it comes to who will be taking on the Caped Crusader, and Robert Pattinson is no exception. Speaking with Access, Pattinson discussed his plans for the voice of the character.
“[Willem Dafoe’s] voice [in Lighthouse] in this is quite inspiring for it to be honest,” Pattinson told Access. “I’m kind of –it is pretty similar to the voice I’m gonna do. I think Batman has a sort of kind of pirate-y voice. I think that really suits him.”
So, I’m not going to lie. I’m having a hard time knowing whether or not he’s kidding, as his tone was hard to read. While I do think he was kidding about the pirate-y aspect of the voice, I’m not entirely convinced he wasn’t inspired by Dafoe in some way.
