The Batman‘s eagerly anticipated debut on the big screen is just a few days away and its lead star Robert Pattinson has opened up on the initial struggle he felt with balancing his preconceived ideas of how he’d play Batman with the reality he faced when donning the Caped Crusader’s famous suit.

“When you’re approaching it, you’re trying to break it down like it’s a conventional job, which is really isn’t,” Pattinson admitted to Digital Spy. “You’re thinking how to play certain scenes and you can’t really imagine yourself being able to convincingly do it until you put on the suit.

“The first day you put on the suit, you’re like, ‘Oh yeah, I’d be scared of this guy if he’s walking down an alley trying to beat me up’. When you’re actually shooting it, there’s a whole host of unforeseen issues that you just can’t predict when you’re trying to imagine how you’re going to play the part. You have to constantly reconfigure your performance at every single hurdle.”

Coincidentally, Colin Farrell suggested the same thing when referencing the makeup and outfit for his character Penguin (Oswald Cobblepot), which sees him completely unrecognizable and feeling a “sense of liberation” because of that.

“Oswald’s not yet fully embodying the recognizable archetype of the Penguin. He’s called the Penguin behind his back by people, but it’s more of a derogatory term. He’s Oz and he’s at an earlier stage of his career.

“I had ideas, but then I saw the design that Mike Marino had created, and when we put that on for the first time, once the make-up went on, I did start moving, speaking and gesturing and just behaving in a way that I hadn’t even considered up until that point. There was something alchemical about the reaction that I had.

“Psychologically I was hidden as well – whatever nervousness we carry as human beings in relation to being seen or in relation to portraying our feelings from our expressions, all of it was gone. I was totally submerged and it was an incredible sense of liberation that I felt.”
