Robert Pattinson Keeps Insisting That Batman is Not a Superhero

Most people would probably say that Batman is their favorite superhero. However, The Batman star Robert Pattinson is still insisting that the Caped Crusader shouldn't be considered a superhero since there's nothing really "super" about him.

Pattinson once again shared his opinion about his character on Today when he was asked if he had always wanted to be a superhero.

"Batman's not a superhero," Pattinson stated. "It doesn't count. You need to have like magical powers to be a superhero."


Come to think of it, he does have a point there. Bruce Wayne is just a regular guy who just happens to be really smart, rich, and creative. On the other hand, he is a part of a superhero league so shouldn't that make him a superhero, too?

Although Pattinson doesn't seem convinced that Batman should be considered a superhero because he doesn't have superpowers, Ben Affleck's version of the character pretty much confirmed that Bruce is powerful in his own way. In Justice League, when Barry Allen asks him about it, Bruce tells him, "I'm rich." (And confident, too, obviously).

The Batman will be directed by Matt Reeves. In addition to Pattinson, the film will also star Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as The Riddler, Colin Farrell as Penguin, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Jim Gordon, and John Turturro as Carmine Falcone. The film is scheduled for release on June 25, 2021.
