We run a lot of rumors here at Giant Freakin Robot. The entertainment business is always swirling with rumors. It is the nature of the beast. Many of them are legitimate wheelings and dealings that are floating around out in the ether of this industry. But, every once in a while, we come across a rumor that is so outrageous that we simply have to call it out for its absolute audacity. Today, that involves a rumor that Zoe Kravitz and Robert Pattinson had sex on the set of The Batman and that Kravitz is pregnant with Pattinson’s baby.
First of all, the source for this is the infamous internet imageboard 4chan. That alone should be the biggest of red flags. An anonymous post on the site claims to be from a person working on The Batman. This individual claims that they, some other workers on the film, and director Matt Reeves caught Zoe Kravitz and Robert Pattinson having sex on top of the Batmobile prop being used for the movie. This person also alleges that Kravitz took a pregnancy test and is pregnant, with many of the crew believing that the baby is Pattinson’s. The poster also claims that Zoe Kravitz and Robert Pattinson have been secretly dating since October.

The utter lunacy of this rumor certainly makes it good fodder for those in gossip circles. The luridness of all this makes it sound like the sauciest of Hollywood salaciousness, but it is an almost near-certainty that this is not true. There have certainly been reports of The Batman shoot being stressful – the entire production having to go through the start and continuation of the COVID-19 pandemic has to be soul-crushingly difficult – but the idea that this kind of over-the-top debauchery is taking place sounds like the kind of wild tales you’d expect from a forum whose Wikipedia page’s largest section is “Controversies.”
Is there any shred of possible truth to the story that Zoe Kravitz and Robert Pattinson went at it on the Batmobile? Anything is possible, but such a massively disrespectful, unprofessional, and frankly unsanitary event would be extremely difficult to hide from more reputable outlets. The fact that little to no proof or credible corroboration has appeared to help convict Zoe Kravitz and Robert Pattinson of this story should also speak volumes. If such a bawdy event did take place, you can bet it would proliferate through more reliable sources and means. A single post on 4chan is not enough to actually give legitimacy to such a scandalous tale.
Again, that is not to say that The Batman has had an easy go of things. Robert Pattinson was revealed to have contracted the COVID-19 virus at some point during the production which caused the shoot to shut down shortly after resuming work. The movie has had to be pushed multiple times due to the pandemic and the state of theatrical exhibition across the globe and primarily in America. Originally, The Batman was set to premiere in June of this year. Now, it has been pushed all the way to March 4, 2022. And who knows if it will even be able to maintain that release date? The movie has plenty of problems without trashy gossip about Zoe Kravitz and Robert Pattinson helping to bring it down.
