Robert Pattinson is ready to put his vampiric sucking skills to good use.
Referencing his role as Edward Cullen, Pattinson told The Guardian, “[I already remember] what it’s like to talk about a movie where there’s an expectation.”
He continued, “Whenever you say anything, people are like, ‘Argh! You idiot!’ Like, dude, I haven’t even started yet!”

“But there is no harsher critic of myself than myself, so I don’t need to worry about anyone else,” the 33-year-old British actor explains.
So what will he do if his Batman bombs at the box office? “Porn,” he says, grinning. “But art-house porn.”
Directed by Matt Reeves, The Batman stars Andy Serkis, Zoë Kravitz, Peter Sarsgaard, Jeffrey Wright, Paul Dano, and Colin Farrell.
This isn’t the first time Pattinson has performed in a racy production. He notably starred in the 2008 queer film Little Ashes.
The Batman will premiere on June 25, 2021.
