The Batman team initially considered shaving Robert Pattinson’s hair off for the role. Pattinson told that “I’m glad we didn’t go down that road. The long hair really helped with creating that side of his character.” At last, the team finalized a long hair for Pattinson’s Bruce Wayne.
Pattinson’s Bruce Wayne look is something entirely different from previous Batman films. Back in February, Pattinson told Entertainment Weekly that all the hard work resulted in him being completely exhausted by the time the movie wrapped.
“When I look at photos of myself from the makeup test on the last day, I don’t even look human by the end of it,” he said. “I look like I’m a piece of bubble gum that’s been stuck on the streets for like three years and has just been scraped off and put in a Batman outfit.”
“The Batman” has grossed over $751 million against a $185–200 million budget, making it the highest-grossing film of 2022. The film received good reviews from fans. With the overwhelming response, the studio has already planned two sequels and two spin-off television series in development for HBO Max.
