Taking on any role in a film is a big deal, but when you’re taking on a role that is considered beloved by millions and millions of fans worldwide, you’re talking about a whole other level of pressure altogether. Actor Robert Pattinson dealt with such pressure before on films like Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and Twilight, where he brought Cedric Diggory and Edward Cullen to live, respectively.

Since his time in those blockbusters, he’s spent most of his time wading through more indie fare, and with Matt Reeves’ The Batman, we’ll be seeing him return to the blockbuster fold…so how does he feel about it?

“With Batman, if I’d done it a few years ago, I would have been incredibly nervous,” Pattinson told The New York Times. “But I’ve still got a few months before we start shooting. Plenty of time to have a panic attack!”

Of course, anyone would be nervous if they thought about playing Batman too deeply, but in his response, he dropped a hint of when the film could be getting in front of cameras. A lot of signs in the past have pointed to early 2020, and if we’re to believe this offhand comment by Pattinson, it would appear that is correct.

We know the production is in the midst of casting right now, so they have to get through that before they get any further. What do you think of Pattinson’s comment? Let us know down below!
