It seems like the entire world has already watched Joker considering that the film is currently Warner Bros.' most successful movie. However, there is one important person who has yet to see Joaquin Phoenix's take on the Clown Prince of Crime. The Batman star Robert Pattinson admitted that he has yet to see the Todd Phillips film.
Pattinson is currently promoting his new movie The Lighthouse but also opened up to Yahoo! about the upcoming Matt Reeves project. Interestingly, the Twilight star confirmed that his Caped Crusader will not be meeting up with Phoenix's Arthur Fleck anytime soon.
“It’s kind of a different world,” Pattinson said. He then admitted that although he hasn't seen Joker, he has every intention to watch it as soon as possible because he's a huge fan of Phoenix.
“I might watch it tonight! Joaquin is the best — he’s awesome in everything,” Pattinson declared.
Although we have yet to know what Pattinson thinks of Phoenix's movie, there is little doubt that he is already excited about his own Batsuit in The Batman. The Tenet actor confessed that Reeves' plan for his character's costume is going to be amazing.
“Matt has got a really awesome idea about it,” Pattinson said. “I think this thing is going to be very, very cool.”
We believe you, Robert. We might not be seeing the new Batsuit anytime soon but at least we now know that the cast of The Batman is truly star-studded. It was previously reported that Zoe Kravitz will be joining the film as Catwoman while Paul Dano will portray The Riddler.
The Batman is scheduled for release on June 25, 2021.
