To craft a new Batman, Robert Pattinson consumed as many comics as possible and found inspiration in some unlikely places.
Typically when there’s a new Batman movie, those involved cite usual suspects like Batman: Year One and Batman: The Long Halloween as inspiration. And sure, some of those comics influenced Matt Reeve’s The Batman, which reboots the franchise without rehashing the titular hero’s origin story. But Pattinson also consulted less obvious fare to find his way into the character, who’s in just his second year as a vigilante in the film. Since The Batman doesn’t depict Bruce suiting up for the first time, Pattinson’s research helped him understand the billionaire’s motivations for donning the cape and cowl.
