The news coming from the set of Matt Reeves’ The Batman continues to get more wild, wooly, and downright hard to believe as now there are claims that Robert Pattinson is allegedly showing up drunk on the set.
Robert Pattinson’s alleged behavior is being reported by YouTube personality and entertainment scooper Doomcock, but as he warns about this rumor, as do we, it’s an unverifiable one, so take it with many grains of salt. If you wish to see and hear Doomcock’s news on The Batman, it begins around the 5-minute mark.
Allegedly, Robert Pattinson has been less than cordial on the set, becoming more of a pain than anything. According to Doomcock’s source, it is alleged that Pattinson is difficult to get to the set and when he actually is there, his usual appearance is intoxicated. But the unverified rumor claims that Pattinson’s alleged drinking and appearance on the set is causing a major rift between all factions of the production. The production is way behind schedule and Warner Bros. has added even more pressure on Reeves by telling him he better figure out how to get the movie done.
Doomcock’s source also alleges that there was a supposed Zoom meeting between the beleaguered director and Warner Bros. executives that pretty much ended up in a shouting match. Now, Warner Bros. is said to be sending over reps to help Reeves handle Robert Pattinson and any other issues that may arise. Also, with major concern surrounding Pattinson, the production has purportedly begun to sink a significant amount of money into digitizing Pattinson so they are able to match his face to numerous shots that have of stuntmen wearing the Batsuit. It should be noted, this is not something that is new when it comes to making these types of comic book movies. Most actors use a stuntman to perform stunts that producers (as well as the insurance agencies) deem too risky for the highly paid actor to complete.
This new set of rumors all lead to the big rumor we reported on earlier, one that is even harder to imagine than Robert Pattinson’s alleged drinking. We are referring to the rumored and totally unsubstantiated hook-up between Pattinson and his co-star Zoe Kravitz, a hook-up that allegedly has led to Kravitz being pregnant.
The Robert Pattinson/Zoe Kravitz hook-up allegation came from the imageboard website 4chan. That right there is a major cause for pause. Supposedly, Pattinson and Kravitz decided to enjoy their mutual company on top of a Batmobile prop on the set and from that encounter, Kravitz got pregnant. This report is said to come from a source on the set, who also alleged that Kravitz got a pregnancy test that confirmed the pregnancy, and many believe that Pattinson is the father.
This source claims that he, along with Reeves and a few workers, caught Robert Pattinson and Zoe Kravitz and Reeves was so mad that he interrupted the act. He then allegedly told Pattinson in a rage, “You are the most entitled narcissistic actor I’ve ever worked with, you go back to work, we finish filming in March and then we are done. I don’t want to ever work with you after this film.”
Robert Pattinson’s supposed tryst with Zoe Kravitz is purported to be a poorly kept secret as the two have apparently been sneaking around together since October 2020. It is known, though, that Kravitz recently filed for divorce in January of this year after 19 months of marriage to Karl Glusman.
Scandalous rumors aside, The Batman has been beset with a number of confirmed troubles, most revolving around the pandemic. Shutdowns have plagued the production in such a way that The Batman’s release date has been altered several times. It was first set to premiere June 25, 2021, then to October 1, 2021, and now the delays have pushed the film’s release into next year, hopefully premiering on March 4, 2022. But if these alleged rumors are to be believed, who knows when we’ll see The Batman.
