The Batman is currently filming, and everyone’s collective focus is pulled together around just what will be the result of Robert Pattinson’s turn as Bruce Wayne/Batman.
While he’s shown that he’s a performer that gives 100% to his performances, a large and crucial part to the character of Batman his raw strength and athletic ability and that meant that Pattinson would be hitting the gym…and HARD.
Now we’ve got our first look at a new ripped up Pattinson in his new shoot for a new Dior perfume campaign.
These stark black and white images show a new leaned up Pattinson who has been putting some time into the gym, but in my own opinion still has a way to go to get fully in shape for the role.
While this campaign was shot well before The Batman entered into production, it’s likely that Pattinson will still be hitting the iron, and he’s starting to put on some noticeable muscle mass. Yes, he’s clearly starting to define his muscles and is showing great gains, but I think he still has some time to go before he truly gets in full superhero shape.
While I’m not expecting him to be as jacked as either Ben Affleck or Christian Bale as he fits more into the ectomorph category and is naturally a skinnier guy, I think we’ll see him get a little bit larger, but he’ll still fit that leaner physique more attributed to say an MMA fighter rather than just being an out-and-out linebacker tank.
I am impressed that Patterson has diligently been training towards his role as Bruce Wayne/Batman and it’s good to see that he’s getting in shape for a serious role. While he’s likely to be a lot more shredded now with filming commencing, we’ll still have to wait a little longer to see his full Batman physique.
The Batman will arrive in cinemas on June 24, 2021.
