Batman is one of the most iconic superheroes in history. The Dark Knight has been a staple of pop culture for decades, and there are plenty of actors who have attempted to portray him on screen. But Robert Pattinson might be the best Batman we’ve seen yet. In this article, I will discuss what makes him so great – as well as his movies, career and life outside of acting.
Why is Batman so Popular?
Batman is one of the most iconic superheroes in history. He first appeared on the cover of Detective Comics #27, and has been a staple of pop culture ever since. His popularity can be traced to his versatility – he’s dark, brooding and mysterious by day; at night Batman turns into an unstoppable force for good who takes on Gotham’s worst villains.
Actors who have played Batman in the Past
Actors who have portrayed batman in the past include Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney and Christian Bale.
Meet Robert Pattinson, the Batman of Our Generation
Robert Pattison is a popular actor who has played a superhero once in The Twilight Saga films – which has now finished. He is now portraying Batman in the DCEU reboot.
Looking at the new portrayal of Batman, Robert is kind of portraying Batman as an intelligent and driven hero with some serious anger issues; however, many people feel that his portrayal falls short because it lacks the dark side necessary to portray Gotham City’s Dark Knight properly.
The film franchise itself is not without its critics, but there are plenty of fans out there who appreciate Rob for giving them their first taste of Hollywood action-heroes in years – especially since they’ve never seen him play anything else (except for Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire).
The Twilight Saga films have also given Robert Pattinson a chance to show off his acting chops as he portrays a conflicted hero who is torn between love, duty, and responsibility. The story arcs throughout the series follow Rob’s character development from an emotionally closed-off vampire in New Moon to a protective father figure at the end of Breaking Dawn Part II–a change that many people feel was for better or worse (mostly due to Kristen Stewart’s portrayal of Bella Swan/Edward Cullen).
While we may not be able to see Robert Pattison play Batman again anytime soon, it seems like this actor will continue with Hollywood blockbusters if they’re willing – which is always good for the sake of our entertainment.
However, it does seem that he has made a much more conscious effort in recent years when it comes to working on projects with meaning–especially those which have deep female leads like The Lost City of Z where he plays David James/Henry Costin) or Good Time as Connie Nikas, who many people believe should have received an Oscar nomination this year – something I can’t disagree with either.
Robert Pattison seems proud of both his work and himself now more than ever before because you can tell there is a shift from “making it” to “being.”
Pattinson is a symbol of what it means to be our generation’s Batman. Someone who has never been more in touch with his own power.
At the same time, he also seems like one of us; a man who doesn’t have all the answers but has found peace with that.
Ultimately, we can always rely on him as much as he relies on himself–a quality which not many men (or women) possess nowadays.
Robert’s Roles in Different movies
The actor was born May 13th 1986 in England and started acting when he was only 11 years old. His most famous role so far would be Edward Cullen from Twilight.
Aside from Edward Cullen in Twilight, Robert has acted in various other roles as well. For instance, he is Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire and Will Traynor in Me Before You . He also appeared alongside Kristen Stewart for their first collaboration since Breaking Dawn – Eclipse with Snow White And The Huntsman where he played Prince William opposite Charlize Theron who played Queen Ravenna. His most recent film so far before this new release is called “Penguins” where he starred alongside Christina Hendricks and Benedict Cumberbatch as king penguin M.
