Here’s the full interview from Alexandra Jones (who commented to me on instagram that Rob “was really great, very funny!” and 5 new photos thanks to Louie Banks. From Evening Standard:

Though he has a baseball cap pulled down over his eyes having been awake since 4am — it’s now 7pm — when I come face to face with Robert Pattinson he is quick to assure me that he is totally fine. The early rising is just because he is in the middle of shooting a new film: a film about which he is extremely enthusiastic.

‘It’s with Parasite director Bong Joon-ho and it’s like nothing I’ve ever done before,’ he says. ‘The movie is so crazy, it’s a completely different style of working.’ In the film — Mickey 17, based on a dystopian sci-fi novel by Edward Ashton — Pattinson plays two versions of himself (both clones) who team up to work together. ‘It’s so much talking,’ he says. He’s been staying in a little hotel in Bedford near a vast airport hangar where they’ve built the set. In the evenings he has been back in his room, getting increasingly worried that it might be haunted. ‘Anyway, today I just realised that I’m probably not seeing ghosts — it’s probably just because I’ve been drinking about 17 cups of coffee a day.’ So to confirm: Robert Pattinson is not going mad, he’s just very, very tired.

For a long time now, Pattinson has been one of the most consistently interesting character actors of his generation. Most recently he has moved back into blockbuster territory as a pleasingly off-beat Bruce Wayne in The Batman. In the decade before this he honed his craft on the art-house and indie circuits, often playing lowlifes, oddballs and creeps for some of the world’s most respected directors (David Cronenberg and Christopher Nolan among them). My personal favourite is Pattinson as deeply unsympathetic street hustler Connie in the frantic Safdie brothers film, Good Time. You forget that you’re watching a man once regarded as the world’s hunkiest teen heart-throb, which is basically the point. The narrative for many years now has been that Pattinson’s career choices are a reaction against the megastardom that was thrust on him during his time playing Edward Cullen in the Twilight franchise.

But anyway, he’s here in his capacity as a Dior fragrance ambassador as the fashion house relaunches Dior Homme Sport and adds a shaving cream to the best-selling line. He has worked with the brand for 10 happy years, such that now he tells me he’s become close friends with many of the people at the company. ‘I’m not even just saying it to be nice. It’s been one of the most enjoyable work, and personal, experiences that I’ve ever had in my life.’ In terms of fragrance, he says he is bad at identifying what his favourite smells are, ‘but — I mean, it’s kind of cheesy — if you’re in love with someone, their smell becomes very particular to you… so yeah, something like “girlfriend in a dressing gown”.’ His girlfriend is the model and musician Suki Waterhouse. The pair have been together for a number of years though they only recently went ‘red carpet official’ and, given the public interest in his previous relationships (first with Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart, then with the musician FKA twigs), it’s perhaps little wonder that they’ve stayed under the radar for so long.

Rob is featured in the new issue of Blush Dream magazine – there’s nothing new but the author has put in some good research and quotes – I particularly love the Guy Pearce nod to Rob.

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.”

Total Film talks Matt Reeves’ “The Batman” in their Christmas 2021 Issue:

Consider Batman, rebooted and suited under the tantalising watch of director Matt Reeves, whose breakout pics involved monsters (Cloverfield) and vampires (Let Me In). For Reeves’ Robert Pattinson-fronted The Batman, fear is emphatically a tool. “This movie, I think, is probably the scariest Batman that’s been done”, says Reeves, “because the idea o what Batman’s doing – it’s scary”. As for Paul Dano’s Riddler, he won’t just be good at barista skills, as the trailer shows. He’s “very scary” too, says Reeves, who drew on the Zodiac Killer for the puzzler’s homicidal hoopla.

Even with Catwoman (Zoe Kravitz) and Penguin (Colin Farrell) recalling Tim Burton’s Batman Returns, Reeves reckons Batman has “never been done in quite this way”. “It’s a detective story, it’s an action movie and it’s a psychological thriller”, he says. A serial-killer investigation as a deep dive into Bruce Wayne’s psychosis, then? We’ll take that.

Onscreen Magazine also has Rob on the cover and had this to say about Rob’s Batman “Pattinson’s caped crusader is sure to be both the hero we need … and the hero we deserve”.

It also appears that =it was confirmed there is a press junket underway with Nando Rohner confirming he had spoken with Rob and other cast members (see tweet below).
