UPDATE: 21 December 2021

Empire shared this excerpt from their interview with Rob where he talks about his ‘map’ of where he’d go with the character over two more films” if they were to happen:

“But if nobody is talking about crossovers or specific sequel plans yet, Pattinson has had thoughts about where he’d take his version of Bruce Wayne if future instalments were to materialise. “I’ve made a kind of map for where Bruce’s psychology would grow over two more movies,” he says. “I would love to do it.”

Oh Rob we would love you to do that too.

More excerpts from Empire thanks to Slash Film. Rob talks about the Batmobile:

In the Batman issue, Pattinson confirms that the souped-up Batmobile was a labor of love. “Bruce built it himself,” says Pattinson,” so there’s this kind of tangibility to it.” With this description, the vehicle is a far cry from the militarized Tumbler that rolled its way through Christopher Nolan’s “Dark Knight” trilogy. Squinting at the images released so far from the film, the car appears to be of the late 1960s — last year, Car and Driver offered the possibility that it could be a 1969 Dodge Charger, while Hot Cars suggests that the car, “oozes the Chevrolet Camaro’s style with its elongated front and the fascia.”

For Reeves, the car is more than a fun gimmick in the Bat’s playroom; it’s an extension of the man himself, adding to his intimidating aura. What might surprise viewers is how he leans into the vibe, using a horror icon as inspiration. The director tells Empire: “It has to make an appearance out of the shadows to intimidate, so I thought of it almost like Stephen King’s [possessed motor] Christine. I liked the idea of the car itself as a horror figure, making an animalistic appearance to really scare the hell out of the people Batman’s pursuing. There is absolutely a horror-genre aspect to this movie.”

Empire unveiled their February 2022 issue feature a collectible cover of Robert Pattinson’s The Batman which hits newstands on 23 December 2021 and one for subscribers (see below):

What happens when you take the most iconic comic book character of all time, entrust him to one of Hollywood’s most ambitious directors, and cast a leading actor who reinvented himself from teen idol to screen powerhouse? You get The Batman â€“ a bold, breathtaking new take on a hero you might have thought you already knew inside out. Well, just you wait. Director Matt Reeves and star Robert Pattinson are cooking up something special with their dark, dangerous, detective-centred Bat-flick – a noir-ish, horror-tinged serial killer mystery with a grunge-rock flair. Think you know The Batman? Think again.

This month’s issue of Empire features the world-exclusive full story on the Dark Knight’s radical return – taking a deep-dive with Reeves, producer Dylan Clark, and their stellar cast on their road into Gotham, their very different conception of Bruce Wayne, the Zodiac Killer-inspired reinvention of the Riddler, and the unexpected influences that make for a Batman story unlike any that’s hit the silver screen before. Inside the mag, you’ll find brand new interviews with Reeves, Clark and Pattinson, as well as Zoë Kravitz on Catwoman, Paul Dano on The Riddler, Colin Farrell on The Penguin – plus, plenty of brand-new never-before-seen images from the film. Light up the Bat-Signal: Gotham’s caped crusader is back.

There’s also a collectible cover featuring Catwoman (click on link above). You can also  pre-order a copy online now here. (I understand they do deliver overseas although this could be impacted by COVID).
