Robert Pattinson's casting as the next Batman still has the entire geek and comic book community torn.
Now in his interview with Variety, the Twilight star finally broke his silence about landing the role and the fan backlash that came with it.
Robert said he was "f*cking furious" when premature reports first surfaced as he felt it could've affected his chances of actually snagging the coveted role. "When that thing leaked, I was f*cking furious. Everyone was so upset. Everyone was panicking from my team. I sort of thought that had blown up the whole thing."
"It was terrifying. I was like, ‘Oh fuck. Does that screw me because they are so intent on secrecy?" he added.
Despite the mixed reception, the producers of the film including director Matt Reeves are confident #Battinson will give the role "justice" (no pun intended). The Batman is expected to start production soon.
