Robert Pattinsonprotagonist of the upcoming film The Batmanrevealed that he had some problems with his “Bat-voice“during filming. After trying to do something different than usual, the actor was told that the result was” absolutely excruciating “and that he had to stop.
During an interview with Jimmy KimmelPattinson said, “Everyone does this kind of gruff and hoarse thing. And I said to myself, ‘I’ll do the opposite – I’ll go for whispers.’ And I tried to do it for the first couple of weeks, and it looked absolutely atrocious, and they told me to stop doing it. ”
Eventually, Pattinson found the right Bat-voice, with a deeper, more traditional tone for The Batman character. “You can sense when the sensation is correct. You are wearing the suit and you have to talk a certain way.”
However, it seems that Pattinson is not the first to try something like this. “I found out from Nick, that he put me inside the suit every day, which is just what he did Christian Bale in Batman Begins, “Pattinson said.” And if you listen to the first Batman Begins teaser trailer, you can hear the original voice. I only found out a couple of weeks ago. ”
Previously, Pattinson had already commented on his own voice for The Batman: “It’s weird, suddenly it starts to feel right,” he explained. “It seems like the more you wear the suit, the more you embody the character; it started coming out quite organically. That’s kind of what I was trying to do with the character; I was trying to think about the fact that he’s not faking it. your voice – you put on your suit, and your voice automatically comes out that way. ”
Obviously for us Italians the voice will be different, given that it will be dubbed at the cinema. Those who go to see it in the hall will also have to prepare for a long viewing: the duration of the film will be almost three hours, close to Avengers: Endgame.
