(Photos) Robert & Zoë Kravitz for Wonderland

Robert and his “The Batman” co-star Zoë Kravitz are on the cover of the Spring issue of Wonderland, and oh my god – Just how well do they look?! We’re crossing our fingers that more outtakes from this beautiful photoshoot will be released soon, in the meantime, you can find some in our gallery and read a sneak peek from the interview below.

” I was in competitive actor mode! I was like, ‘I wonder who else was out for that part?’ I knew a few people who had gone out and tested for it too so I was comparing them to you – as you do [laughs]. And then I felt really comforted by that too because I think you have really, really good taste and I knew The Batman was going to be different from the [superhero] films I’d seen before, and protected from being too… I don’t know, cheesy, you know what I mean? Superhero films can go so horribly wrong in general. But I think [the roles] are what both of us are looking for in terms of art and the artists that we want to be. I think you’ve done a really incredible job at navigating your career and working with up-and-coming directors, writers, and searching for things that interest you – and taking really big risks as you go. You make really bold choices as an actor. I’m honestly blown away by you when I watch your work. I’m like,‘ Oh, my God, Rob’s like a really good actor.’”

Not everyone is willing to scale the roof of The Hollywood Roosevelt hotel or, slathered in lube, slip into a latex bodysuit for the sake of fashion. Luckily for renowned photographer Ellen Von Unwerth, Zoë Kravitz’s and Robert Pattinson’s desire to embrace the stranger things in life is what makes them so hypnotically electrifying. And, in all fairness, donning an unconventional ‘suit’ is something the two actors have become quite accustomed to lately…

Entering Gotham City as the new Catwoman/Selina Kyle and Batman – two of the most iconic fictional characters of all time – Kravitz and Pattinson take on their biggest roles to date in director Matt Reeves’ unique vision of the Gotham underbelly. It’s certainly hard to deny, as Kravitz goes on to mention, that superhero movies often go amiss. And that is probably why, with Batman’s various re-inventions over the decades, extended iterations of the vigilante franchise have often been met with skepticism. But if Kravitz’s and Pattinson’s unconventional oeuvre has anything to say about their taste for picking complex, unexpected roles that captivate, Reeves’ own interpretation of the DC comic book story is set for triumph. Covering our Spring 2022 issue, the two actors talk their first impressions of each other on set, what they look for in new roles, and how they feel about becoming the next Batman and Catwoman.

(Photos) Can Robert Pattinson and Matt Reeves’ rebooted “The Batman” save the box office?

Robert Pattinson and “The Batman” director Matt Reeves spoke recently with Los Angeles Times about the casting backlash, the new take on an old character, and creating a Gotham for our times. YYou can find the photoshoot in our gallery, and read the full article below!

When director Matt Reeves announced he had tapped Robert Pattinson to play Batman in his much-anticipated franchise reboot in 2019, fans from every corner of the internet immediately began sharpening their knives.

Never mind that Pattinson had spent years taking a sledgehammer to his tween-heartthrob image in a series of unglamorous arthouse roles, from a small-time bank robber in the grungy “Good Time” to a lonely 19th century lighthouse keeper in the hallucinatory “The Lighthouse.” For many, the idea of the onetime “Twilight” vampire tackling one of the superhero canon’s most iconic characters in “The Batman,” which opens Friday, seemed like a potential bat-astrophe in the making.

Pattinson took the initial backlash in stride. “I was actually mocked less than I usually am,” the actor, seated alongside Reeves, said over Zoom on a recent afternoon. He laughed. “I was quite shocked. ‘Only 70% negative? A-plus!’ ”

Nor was Reeves, who had stepped into the project after its initial star and director Ben Affleck dropped out, particularly concerned. “When you go into a Batman movie, you just have to kind of harden yourself in the beginning,” said Reeves, who had earned the job largely on the strength of his two critically and commercially successful installments in the “Planet of the Apes” series. “It’s an 80-year-old character. Every time you step into it, you’re stepping into something where everybody already has a preconception.”

Pattinson’s casting is far from the only aspect of “The Batman” likely to shake up preconceived notions. Clocking in at three hours, with a dense narrative and a style that veers from gritty noir to angsty psychodrama to serial-killer horror, Reeves’ movie returns Batman to his roots as “the world’s greatest detective.” Dispensing with the overly familiar origin story, the film tracks Batman’s pursuit, aided by Catwoman (Zoë Kravitz), of the elusive Riddler (Paul Dano), who is sprinkling clues about a sprawling conspiracy of corruption — along with dead bodies — throughout the troubled city of Gotham.

Robert & Zoë for Entertainment Weekly

Robert and Zoë are on the newest February digital issue of Entertainment Weekly to talk all things “The Batman”: from how the movie came to life, to their sweaty first day on set. Our gallery has been updated with not only outtakes from the gorgeous photo session, but also some exclusive new stills and behind the scenes released by the publication. Another note to add is the video, where we can watch Robert and Zoë discuss the movie but also take a behind-the-scenes peek at their cover shoot (and we have added screen captures from it to our gallery as well). You can read the full article below and in our press archive (along with a second article released) and watch the video below!

The costumes created another unglamorous obstacle because Pattinson was, understandably, burning up in the Batsuit. At one point, Batman pins Selina to the top of a table, and during each take, his sweat would trickle down his forehead, between his eyes, and out through the cowl’s nose tip as he hovered above his costar.

“There’s only one place where sweat can be released,” says Pattinson. “And it would drop directly between Zoë’s eyes or nose. I could almost see it quivering at the end of my nose like, ‘Don’t drop!’ It’s like Mission: Impossible.”

“I’d just be trying to do the scene, but also just looking at the one bead of sweat that I knew was about to fall,” says Kravitz.

Just like Batman and Catwoman, Robert Pattinson and Zoë Kravitz have a bit of a history: The stars of The Batman (in theaters March 4), have known each other for more than a decade. You can tell as they tease one another about their flirting skills (or lack thereof) at their EW cover shoot in downtown L.A. in late January, or by how nonchalantly Pattinson drapes a camel coat over Kravitz’s shivering shoulders after they wrap on a chilly rooftop as the sun sets. But their story as the Dark Knight and the most famous cat burglar of all time didn’t begin until their chemistry test on a Warner Bros. soundstage in Burbank in October 2019.

Both actors were feeling the pressure that day. “The chemistry read was really intense,” Kravitz, 33, tells EW. They had to perform one of several intimate exchanges Batman and Selina have in the film, the scene also serving as Kravitz’s audition because The Batman director Matt Reeves chose to meet with her before the Big Little Lies star even read a single line. “Rob was wearing the Batsuit, and it was a proper camera test with the DP there and everything on a soundstage. It wasn’t just reading lines in a room. So it was intimidating, to say the least,” she says. Her first task? The seemingly simple act of taking off a motorcycle helmet. “That totally spun me into a little bit of anxiety,” she recalls. “It’s wildly complicated to take off a helmet and look cool, not have it get stuck on your head, or your hair look funny. I was convinced that was going to be my downfall.”

Meanwhile, Pattinson was experiencing his own bout of anxiety, even though he was already cast. In keeping with Warner Bros. tradition, he had already completed a solo screen test in a classic Batsuit — Val Kilmer’s from Batman Forever, nipples and all — even if it was a tad tight. But he had also yet to utter a word as his character. “The first time I’d even said lines from the script was in Zoë’s screen test,” says the 35-year-old actor. “They had this idea that they wanted me to be taller at the beginning, so I basically had high-heeled sneakers on, and I’m tottering around in this strange Batman outfit. The camera’s not even on me, it’s on the back of my head, and I’m literally having this major panic attack, just looking for emotional support from Zoë, who’s trying to get the part.”

Whatever Scarecrow-toxin-level fears were coursing through the stars’ minds, they weren’t apparent to Reeves. “They really connected,” says Reeves, best known for directing Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and its sequel War for the Planet of the Apes. “Everyone could see there was something really special between them.” And thus, Reeves found his Bat and Cat, a crucial moment because their tortured love story, he says “is absolutely central” to the film.

(Photos) The Metamorphosis of Robert Pattinson

The press tour for “The Batman” has started, with Robert gracing the March cover of GQ magazine! Showing us his chameleon side with various looks, our gallery’s been updated with not only the two covers but also outtakes from the photo session! Along with the photos, you’ll also be able to read the article posted by GQ, and watch a video in which he breaks down his most iconic characters below.

001.jpg001.jpg003.jpg016.jpg

He is exceptionally handsome. Wide, wild eyes. Large facial features arranged where a sculptor might have put them in 16th-century Italy. He is, unlike some actors, taller than people suppose. (“A lot of Batman fans are like, He’s tiny, he’s tiny! I’m not fucking tiny!” he says. “I’m, like, a large person. About half the time, I’m trying to get skinnier.”) He has that ability to look convincingly different, by meaningful degrees, in many different things. It’s not just hair and weight. It’s the way he can lower or raise an internal dimmer switch to dial the eyes and mouth along a spectrum from, like, American scuzzbucket to French aristocrat. It permits him to work effectively as both a leading bat and a 12-minute scene-stealer. “He’s a chameleon,” Matt Reeves, director of The Batman, says. “Recently, Rob was telling me that he never plays a character with exactly his voice. The voice is one of his ways in.”

In London today, his natural accent is crisp and his words are prudent. But his laughter is freewheeling and he can’t help but start things off by saying precisely what he feels: “I’m so fucking jet-lagged!” He is underdressed: “It’s cold! Fuck!” And he is feeling his age (35): “I can’t do anything anymore!” The effect is something like: English art dealer after a weeklong fair in Hong Kong. He looks like he was maybe at his shiniest six days ago.

We’re walking through Holland Park, at the base of Notting Hill. Not 18 hours earlier, the plan had been for us to visit the London Zoo, but he’d suddenly thought better of it. “I was talking to my girlfriend”—the model and actress Suki Waterhouse—“last night and she was, like, ‘You know, people don’t really like zoos.…’ I’d been thinking about a metaphorical thing. But then I was thinking that’s very wrong, a sad bear walking in circles.” He’d talked himself out of it.

“I just can’t help it,” he says. “I’ll do it for every single element, every decision, in my life. What is the worst-case scenario for this decision?

His career to this point has been shaped by a combination of talent, desire, luck, attendant fame, and bold choices. The fame came quickly, with Twilight, the teen-vampire saga that grossed billions of dollars and set Pattinson up for a particular kind of path. The choices—smaller movies with singular filmmakers—came as part of his masterfully planned, decade-long prison break out of that one particular career. “I’m constantly doing risk assessments, which drives everybody crazy, trying to predict every single element that could possibly happen. And then, at the end of it, just being like: Ah, fuck it! I’ll just play a lighthouse keeper who fucks a mermaid! I think this is the right move!
