Robert Pattinson’s Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu instructor for The Batman has shared a behind-the-scenes training photo of the star.

As preparations continue for Batman to return to screens, Pattinson has begun the arduous process of getting himself in physical shape to tackle the role of Bruce Wayne. Pattinson’s trainer Rigan Machado indeed just shared an image of himself and Pattinson in the gym working hard on getting the actor ready for the task ahead. See the image in the space below:

Batman is coming????

In the photo, Rigan Machado is most likely going over some very basic training exercises. Robert Pattinson has only just recently begun prep for The Batman so we can expect to see more footage of him training before the film starts rolling in the coming months.

Indeed, it seems that Pattinson is ready to sink himself all the way into the character of Batman, which should come as no surprise given the actor’s insane level of commitment to roles in other recent films, including The Lighthouse, which is garnering Oscar buzz. Even so, when it comes to physical preparation, Pattinson will have a long way to go to catch up to Christian Bale, who transformed himself into a genuine physical specimen to play Wayne in the Dark Knight trilogy. It will be fascinating to see what Pattinson looks and sounds like when The Batman finally arrives in theaters. Of course, no matter what he does, it will undoubtedly meet with a certain amount of negativity from some circles.
