No fan might have seen that coming for sure. Since childhood, fans have fantasized about having a utility belt like Batman which has all sorts of gizmos and weapons. But who knew that the caped crusader would need a vape? In his defense, considering how grueling shooting this film might have been and as a smoker, Pattinson made smart use of his utility belt.
Fans and followers were quite amused by the inclusion of the vape pen. Speaking of his performance within Batman’s iconic Bat-suit, He said, “It’s a strange feeling. I had moments when I would look myself in the mirror wearing the suit and be like, am I really doing this, this is absolutely crazy!”
Robert Pattinson Says Playing Batman “Feels Right”
Talking about the difficulties he faced donning the Bat-suit, the star said that it was an integral part of his character. Pattinson said, wearing that suit made it easier for him to slip into the character and develop that voice. According to CBR, Pattinson said, “It suddenly starts to feel right, and it seems to me, I think the more you record in the suit, the more you embody the kind of character,” Pattinson said. “It just started to come out quite organically. I think that’s kind of what I was trying to do with the character as well. I was trying to think… he’s not putting on a voice. It seemed… he puts on the suit, and then the voice just starts happening for him as a person.”
