Robert Pattinson couldn’t take his costume off on the set of ‘The Batman’.
The 35-year-old actor played the iconic character in Matt Reeves’ blockbuster, and the filmmaker was such a “perfectionist” that Robert couldn’t take his costume off.
The Hollywood star told SFX magazine: “I think in some big movies, people can call it. In this case, there’s a legacy of very, very good film – never one that was completely useless, so everyone brought their A’s.
“Also the way Matt directs too, he’s such a perfectionist. But you’re never really out of the way from the moment you arrive in the morning. It’s not like you can go back to the trailer or anything. Especially me… I can’t even get out of the costume!”
The ‘Tenet’ star was tested in Val Kilmer’s 1995 ‘Batman Forever’ costume, and he had to be “drained” because the thick costume made him sweat profusely.
Matt previously spilled: “Rob did his first (screen test) himself and he actually wore, I believe, the Val Kilmer Batsuit.
“By the way, when (Pattinson) put it on, it was a crazy moment.”
The Twilight star believes it was a combination of the latex-like suit and being “very nervous” that made her sweat so much.
Robert said: “That’s crazy. But I remember wearing it and thinking, ‘This can’t be. This would be absolutely impossible.
“I mean, put on some kind of two-inch rubber suit, or a latex suit, and be super nervous and full of adrenaline all the time.
“I remember we liked the double take and people just said, ‘What can we do with sweat?’ They’re like, ‘Nothing! Nothing to do.’ I have to run out of fluids.”
