The fans are eagerly looking forward to seeing Pattinson go up against Dano in The Batman. Well, a simple reason for that is Bruce would be an amateur in his career and the Riddler will surely be having his fun with him. However, it didn’t come easy for him. He has recently revealed that he was scared to play the character because of the fans. When asked if he was scared to play the role, he told ScreenRant:

“Maybe at the outset. I mean, the fans are so passionate, but so are we. I think sometimes those fears are a good driving force. You want to dig into the history, and the iconography, and the archetypes, and all the energy that’s there while charting our path, which was most important for this film. And luckily, Matt and his script brought a true point of view and something that I haven’t seen before in, not only a Batman film but in a superhero film. So, scary, yes. But exciting.”

Delivering your creative aspect for a character to the fans is always a bit tough. That’s because there’s always a high possibility that the fans might not vibe with your take on it and could simply thrash you. But the initial reviews have clearly stated that every character has delivered according to the expectations which makes the 3 hours runtime bearable.
