Poll: Do you think Robert Pattinson is a bad actor? (64 votes)

Yes 22%
No 78%

Just polling for opinions on the new Batman. My answer is no, not at all, Good Time and The Rover have shown me that the guy is no joke.

He's not bad at all, he gets a lot of flak because of Twilight.

@detectivesomerset__: I won't judge him as Batman until I see the movie, though I think it'd be unfair to judge him as an actor purely from his performance in the awful Twilight films, he has improved a lot as an actor since, The Rover, Good Time and High Life were all good. The Lighthouse looks sweet and he's going to be in Christopher Nolan's Tenet.

@eri123: That's a weak performance compared to him in Good Time.

@eri123: Watch it, it's good, that's the movie that convinced me that he's legitimately good now.

I don’t want him as Batman , how WB failed again? I like a bit of BvS but why... they have to ruin another terrible casting??

@ghostodoofus2: his role in tenet has a short screentime and won’t be good probabily

He’s gonna be the scarlet Johansson in the prestige , when she didn’t know why she was in the movie compared to others acting

@detectivesomerset__: Your first line makes no sense given his other catalogue of films and tells me that indeed you’ve only seen him in Twilight.

@detectivesomerset__: So...nothing recent then? Yeah he’s a good actor.

Him as Batman is strange to me but I’m not worried.

No. But that doesn't make him a Batman material, why is that so hard to understand? Not every actor fits every role, no matter how good they are. Bale is much more versatile and stronger actor than Affleck, still Affleck was a much better Batman AND Bruce Wayne. There's no ABC ligic in that. It's the magic of cinema.

Nope he is a pretty good actor. People laughs at him because of the Twilight saga (Which Rob didn't like himself)

He could look really good as a younger Bruce Wayne/Batman if he put on a few pounds of muscle.

@beyond_dreams: I'm sure he'll get the best trainers to get big, Christian Bale was even smaller in The Machinist which he filmed not too long before Batman Begins.

@ready_4_madness:

It's not about acting,again. To me it's no different from casting Stallone (in his prime) for the part. They simply equally don't belong here.

Actually, Nic Cage as Superman comes to mind.

@adamtrmm: that’s a bad way to look at it. Nic Cage as Superman is miles away from Pattison as Batman. Cage not only doesn’t resemble the character at all nor does Stallone as Batman, they simply don’t have the range Pattison has. Batman is a multi layered character, so not many actors have the acting chops to do that convincingly.

It’s not about acting? It’s a film, it’s has to be about the acting.

@ready_4_madness:

Point was Cage is good actor that wasn't in his place as Superman. (I know his reputation is shaky nowadays, but he is talented).

It's like you completely ignored that part I wrote about Bale...

Pattinson may kill it in terms of acting, he still won't be a Batman material. Just like Gyllenhaal.

@payneintheass:

1. He makes no sense as younger Affleck, assuming it's still DCEU.

2. Assuming it isn't, he still lacks the attributes I associate with the right pick for the part in terms of physique (not just how well he's built, but everything from stature to visage) and overall appeal. As examples, to me it's as dissonant as Hemsworth playing Spiderman, or Garfield playing Superman, and so on.

@adamtrmm:

Welp, I can´t really disagree on that, since its pretty much very a personal opinion.

On a pure visual way, I think he has potential for a younger Batman, with the right haircut (and colour), bulking up, he could be really good.

Sure he is not the tank that Affleck can portray (height/weight), but for this specific portrait (like, not really DCEU) he should work.

At least give him the jaw, it´s as good as Fassbenders´ lol.

@ghostodoofus2:

He hasn't improved the poor guy actually hates Twilight from the bottom of his heart and we never got to see him actually act there. Look at his interviews he almost got fired for shitting on the movies in interviews

I kinda feel bad for the guy he started off with such a garbage franchise that people don't take him seriously.

Batman is 60% looks 20% brooding 10% charisma

Pattinson with added muscle will be a very good looking Batman brooding isn't difficult and he is very charismatic in others roles ive seen him in

@richubs: Such a garbage franchise that gave him millions and made him popular overnight so that he can act in his passion projects.

Also, he is unprofessional douche if he deliberately did not act in twilight.

Only saw him in Harry Potter, he was fine there. Never really watched Twlight and since then he's been doing indie films that no one but die hard film fanatics would know anything about.

@ghostodoofus2: its been stated that he is at the end of the cast so he will have a short screentime.

Kinda like the detective in TDKR or Yousuf in inception. Like 10 mins at best his role will be like Harry styles in Dunkirk I think.

@payneintheass: Those movies are all average and bale had multiple prestige films before Batman.

Plus bale Batman was a solid 10/10 , perfect for the grounded world.

He’s not passing affleck let alone bale. He will be like Val Kilmer or Keaton at best

@socajunkie: nothing else because he isn’t that good. I am the first Batman dan he’s my fav superhero , and yet I don’t want him.

Bale is the best , affleck was great but what is Pattinson doing here? Keaton was a good Batman but a meh Bruce Wayne imo.

Pattinson will be good as Kilmer , if he does well great then I am happy for it , but I have low really low expectations for this movie after BvS people started to hate on Batman..

The best answer.

Pattinson: kind-good actor in shitty films.

Pattinson is a very good actor, aside from twillight bs which he actually does not like either he is a really good actor. Underrated i would say. Will he be a good batman? idk time will tell, but if he puts on some mass to his frame i could see him doing a job

Other movies he was disappointing , I mean I didn’t like his performance in others

Quantity is a fact here , that’s why Nicolas cage is a joke/terrible even if he did some good acting in a few movies. You understand what I meant?
