‘The Batman’: Zoë Kravitz Said Robert Pattinson ‘Kept Sweating’ on Her During 1 Scene

Matt Reeves’ The Batman stars Zoë Kravitz and Robert Pattinson as Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman, and Bruce Wayne, aka Batman. Playing the iconic Batman roles and standing out from predecessors like Michelle Pfeiffer and Michael Keaton comes with acting challenges. However, the costumes have their own obstacles for the actors. And Pattinson realized this while on top of Kravitz during one particular scene. During an interview for The Batman, Zoë Kravitz said Robert Pattinson “kept sweating” while on top of her.

Zoë Kravitz said her most memorable ‘The Batman’ scene was a fight where Robert Pattinson was on top of her and kept sweating

Filming for Matt Reeves’ The Batman movie started in 2020, and one of the first scenes Zoë Kravitz and Robert Pattinson starred in was an intense fight scene. Batman, Riddler (Paul Dano), and Catwoman all collide several times in the movie, leading to many brawls.

However, filming through 2020 and 2021, Batman star Kravitz said one scene stuck out to her, but not for the reason you might expect.

“The most memorable scene,” Kravitz told Entertainment Weekly. “Maybe it’s because it was the first day, but I always think about the fight that we do in the mayor’s mansion. Also, it was our first scene together.”

However, Kravitz and Pattinson still had to adjust to their costumes at the time, leading to a hilarious moment between them. Who thought The Batman set could lead to so many laughs?

“It was a major fight, and then you were still getting used to the cowl, and there’s this bit where you’re on top of me on a table, and it’s so hot in the suit, and he kept sweating on me,” Kravitz said to Pattinson, laughing.

Both Zoë Kravitz and Robert Pattinson laughed about filming The Batman scene. Pattinson revealed Batman’s Batsuit can be a bit restricting. 

“There’s only one place where sweat can be released which is directly in between the [eyes],” Pattinson laughed. “It would drop directly between Zoë’s eyes [and] run down her nose.”

While every actor from Ben Affleck to Christian Bale had various difficulties with the iconic Batman suit, few had one as specific as Pattinson.

“We would just be like [on top of each other],” Kravitz said, trying to mime how they were. “And I’d be just trying to do the scene, but also just looking at the one bead of sweat that I knew was about to fall.”

“I could almost feel it quivering at the end of my nose, like ‘don’t drop!’ It’s like Mission: Impossible,” he said. Robert Pattinson compared the moment on The Batman set with Zoë Kravitz to the iconic scene where Tom Cruise’s character had to stop a bead of sweat from setting off an alarm.

‘The Batman’ actor confessed it took a lot to adapt to the Batsuit

Pattinson breathed a sigh of relief when he secured the role. However, he still needed time to adjust.

“That was a pretty rough introduction to the characters,” Pattinson said. “Matt likes to do a lot of takes. And we were shooting the fight, and it’s hard to fight in those suits. And we were doing that for weeks, and then trying to kind of put in … character stuff in amongst punches.”

The Batman stars Zoë Kravitz and Robert Pattinson agreed that their costumes took some getting used to, though. Portraying complex characters with restricted movement gave them plenty of challenges.

Fans can catch the Bat and the Cat when Matt ReevesThe Batman releases on March 4, 2022.
