Batman is one of the oldest and iconic roles of a superhero in the DC universe. It will be a dream for every actor to reprise such a superhero role at least once in their career. Such a wish has come true to the Twilight and Torchlight fame Robert Pattinson.
He has been appointed as the new Batman for the Gotham as Ben Affleck who has played this role excellently has stepped down.
His reasons for stepping down :
After seeing Ben Affleck withdraw from his superhero role all fans were shocked by this news. They all wondered why he had withdrawn from such an iconic role. Ben Affleck has his reasons. After doing many movies he has started hating the blockbuster movies.
He said that ” You know big blockbusters are cool and they’re great. But they’re not that fun to make, just on a very practical level, because they’re very long, they’re very compartmentalized, you’re doing one tiny piece at a time. Often, you’re just feeling like you’re moving your foot a quarter of an inch.
They’re hard to continue to motivate yourself and find your passion. I stepped away from The Batman movie because I felt like it should be made by someone whose lifelong passion it was, you know what I mean? And if that wasn’t me, then I wasn’t the right guy”.
We can see him now play such roles which are more artistic and dramatic. Even his movies are such kind which is also not blockbusters. So his reasoning for stepping out of this so apt. Even his family problems begun.
He said that ” I drank relatively normally for a long time. What happened was that I started drinking more and more when my marriage was falling apart.
This was 2015, 2016. My drinking, of course, created more marital problems”. So with his hate for blockbuster films and personal problems he faced it was a quite good decision for him to step out of the Batman role.
