    When the actor was recently asked, "Are you starting to buff up for The Batman?" he replied, "I'm early stages. Very, very early."

    Q: are you starting to buff up for Batman? Rob: "I'm early stages, very very early."

    He then said something very, very relatable when asked if he doesn't like exercise: "As I've kind of gotten older, oh god... I'm certainly getting aware of aging. It's like I need to put some effort in, otherwise I'm going to need a hip replacement."

    Um, same.

    While he was doing other interviews for his new film The Lighthouse, Pattinson also talked about how he finds exercise to be calming at this stage of his life.

    Robert on preparing his "Batman" body

    "I used to hate working out. In my 30s, I find it very meditative. It's weird," he shared. "When you feel like someone's not forcing it on you, and you're doing it for yourself, it's a very different experience... I'm weirdly looking forward to it."

    He then added, "The dieting too. I'm an extremist. I'll eat nothing but pizzas for months so by the time I have to diet my body is like, 'Thank god. Please only healthy stuff from now.' ... I've been bulking."

    Tbh, I fully believe in Pattinson's ability to "bulk" up for The Batman.

    As for the rest of his transformation, R. Patz has been role-playing Batman since he was little.

    As he recently told Variety: “When I was a kid, it was the only outfit that I had.”

    Sadly we'll have to wait until June 25, 2021, to see how all of those years of practice paid off.
