Christopher Nolan’s portrayal of Batman has been applauded by critics worldwide and still remains a fan-favourite. But the franchise is moving on, with director Matt Reeves now taking reins and actor Robert Pattinson playing the caped crusader on screen. Nolan worked with Pattinson in his latest film Tenet, and the revealed that he advised Pattinson on how to play Batman.

In a new interview with CNA, Nolan shared how he maintained “a respectful silence” on the set of Tenet after he first heard about Pattinson playing Batman. As the film came close to wrapping up, Nolan decided to thaw the silence, and eventually ended up joking and having conversations about it, where Nolan even shared some advice.



“He certainly did not ask me for any advice. We kept a respectful silence around the issue ’til very near the end of the shoot. We said a couple of things and made a couple of jokes. We did have a little bit of a conversation about the various aspects of what he was going to be putting himself through. But I was thrilled that he was cast. I think that he’ll do an amazing job and I’m really excited to see what he does with that character.”

The Batman is set to release on October 21, 2021 worldwide.
