Robert Pattinson has a jam-packed line up of big-ticket movies with Tenet and The Batman. In Tenet, he works with Christopher Nolan for the very first time and stars alongside John David Washington. In The Batman, Pattinson has the torch passed on to him by Ben Affleck to play the beloved Caped Crusader. For the latter, Robert had to obviously beef up and got some major assistance from his Tenet co-star Washington. In an interview with Irish Times, the 34-year-old actor recalled the hilarious time when John David helped him get fit.

"When I’m running on screen I’m generally paired with John David who is an ex-NFL player so it was the most unfair thing in the world. The maximum workout I do most of the time is a casual stroll. John David can run all day long," Pattinson quipped to Irish Times and then quickly added, "It was good that I ended up being pretty fit. But definitely, at the beginning, there were days I just could not walk afterwards."

Judging by the teases that have come out so far, Robert Pattinson will surely give his all to play Batman to its highest potential!
