The Surprising Way Batman’s Robert Pattinson Used His Utility Belt Off-Screen
Robert Pattinson apparently made the most of his distinctive costume in ‘The Batman’. In a video shared on Twitter per MovieRankings.net, a member of the film crew is seen removing a Juul vape pen from Batman’s utility belt. Although the short clip lacks the exact context of the moment, the implication seems pretty clear: Pattinson uses his utility belt to stow his vape pen.
While we’re not entirely sure whether or not Bruce Wayne would approve of wasting such valuable real estate on the utility belt for such a device, it’s simply undeniable that Pattinson displays some rather ingenious use of a super suit. -hero. While they often look great, superhero costumes don’t always enjoy the most practical real-world applications, so it’s certainly nice to see this costume gaining some real real-world use.
Of course, an even more interesting question is whether this is the first time a Batman actor has made such use of the utility belt. We already know that Pattinson got some notable advice from ‘The Dark Knight’ actor Christian Bale regarding another key piece of his costume (via Initiated). While we don’t have any indication of similar behavior among previous Batman actors, it’s certainly fun to imagine Adam West or Michael Keaton pulling a cigarette out of their own utility belts.
