On approaching the iconic bat-voice (via Forbes):

“It was a lot of trial and error,” replied Pattinson. “I mean, I had a lot of time to think about it. I think I was cast about seven or eight months before we started shooting and so I was experimenting with a lot of different things. And I think the first two or three weeks were kind of doing a variety of different voices, because there’s only a couple of lines in the first few scenes we shot… Me and Matt just sort of settled on something, it just kind of started to sit in a very particular place.”

Pattinson continued, “It felt like progression from other bat-voices, and felt kind of somewhat comfortable to do as well. It’s weird, it just suddenly starts to feel right. It seems to be the more you embody the suit, the more you embody the character, and it kind of started to come out organically. I think that’s kind of what I was trying to do with the character as well, I was [thinking] he’s not putting on a voice, he puts on the suit and then the voice just starts happening for him as a person as well.”

On Bruce Wayne’s backstory (via Collider):

“We discussed it a lot. And it’s funny because you try and everyone wanted to avoid doing origin story, but then you invariably, it’s a new version of the character, and you’re so aware of the origins, but you end up trying to sort of play it in the subtext, in little moments. Because the story is set over such a short period, as well, it’s actually really difficult to kind of shove in as much as you can. The kind of emotional weight that just kind of lies in your body language and on your face, and hopefully it kind of comes across. Also, it’s kind of different to the traditional origin story as well. I mean, he doesn’t go away and train and come back as a fully mastered Batman at all. He’s not the traditional playboy persona as well.”

In other versions of the Batman story, Pattinson said, the residue of the trauma of losing his parents is “still there” for Bruce, “but he’s basically kind of mastered it and turned it into Batman”. It’s different in their interpretation, however. Pattinson said: “Whereas, what I was interested in talking to you (Reeves) about was like, it’s very… When he’s Bruce, it’s still the day his parents died. I mean, he hasn’t gone over it at all, and he’s become Batman, almost in order to survive his present rather than think, oh, I’m going to make a new future. It’s to protect himself as much as anything else. And as soon as he takes it off, then he just goes back to being a 10-year-old boy again, and the pain is still very much real.”

On  Robin being added to the roaster in a – not confirmed – sequel to “The Batman” (via Collider):

“Yeah, but he has to be 13,” the star said in response to the idea of Robin joining the fray. “That’s the only way I’ll accept it. No, I love Death in the Family and stuff, but I think it’d be so cool. Also people are so scared of it, but it’s kind of exciting. I think it would be a really fun addition.”

On the trouble of emoting in Batman’s cowl (via Collider):

“But it was one of these things, I have to say, it’s a true testament to Rob as a performer. And he’s so technical as well as incredibly emotional. I would watch Rob get himself into that state where he would be getting really raw before he would shoot. Then I would be saying like, ‘I think I need to see a little bit more through the cowl.’ I would just be doing that. But that was, it was definitely by design, and it was a huge challenge. And thank God I had Rob to work with.”

They spoke further about a specific moment on set, with Pattinson frustrated by just how much theatrical work he had to do to emote through the mask. “I’d say, one of the things I do when I’m working with actors is, say, ‘Well, come take a look,'” remembers Reeves. “You’d go, ‘Oh, you can’t see my eyes.'” Pattinson continues:

“That was maybe the worst day of the whole shoot, because I really, genuinely thought it was you that was wrong. And then I was like, ‘How can we be doing 40 takes?’ And then you’re like, ‘Just come and look at it.’ And I was looking at it, going like, ‘Wow,’ like I’m, ‘There’s nothing. There’s nothing happening.'”
