The Batman: Robert Pattinson couldn't tell Nolan anything about his audition

Robert Pattinson reveals he had to keep the secret of his audition for the Batman even with the director of Tenet

The Batman star Robert Pattinson has revealed that he couldn't even tell Tenet live and The Dark Knight trilogy Christopher Nolan anything about the fact that he was auditioning to play the crusader in the cape. DC.

Like any superhero project, The Batman is an extremely secret movie. That was particularly true when Warner Bros and director Matt Reeves were searching for the new Bruce Wayne. While some names were leaked, we will likely never know the full list of actors who tried out for the role.

Robert Pattinson eventually won the role, and he's no stranger to having to keep quiet about the project, especially after starring in Christopher Nolan's mysterious new sci-fi movie Tenet.

Pattinson talks about how he had to lie to Nolan

Speaking to the Irish Times, he acknowledges that Nolan is "secretive about everything that has to do with his films," but revealed that he couldn't even tell the filmmaker responsible for the dark knight trilogy he was doing the tests for the crusader of the cape. "He had to be very secretive about the Batman stuff," the actor explained. "So I had to lie to Chris about having to do a screen test." "I said I had a family emergency," Pattinson recalled about leaving Tenet's set. "And as soon as I said 'it's a family emergency,' he said, 'You're going to audition for Batman, right?'

It makes sense for Nolan to see through that story after working on three movies revolving around Batman, and Pattinson has previously revealed that the character isn't one they've spent a lot of time talking about. At this time, Tenet will launch later this month in the rest of the world and in early September in some cities in the United States. | Movies, comics and series
