Robert Pattinson's Bizarre Advice That Actually Made It On-Screen Twice

Given that he's starring as the title character in writer-director Matt Reeves' upcoming superhero opus "The Batman," there's no question actor Robert Pattinson is scaling new heights — and he's doing it in more ways than one. To begin with, Pattinson's turn as Bruce Wayne, aka Batman, is arguably the actor's highest-profile gig to date, and that comes on the heels of one of the lead roles in writer-director Christopher Nolan's mind-bending thriller "Tenet." On top of that, Pattinson is playing DC's famed Caped Crusader, who's been known to take flight via some high-tech contraptions throughout his history in the comics and on-screen. After all, there's a reason he's called "Batman."

Ironically, "The Batman" won't mark the first time that Pattinson will be demonstrating that he has no fear of heights. In fact, in two other franchises that the actor has participated in, the actor made some bizarre suggestions to introduce his character that the directors actually went along with.

Pattinson says he suggested his tree-jump entries in Harry Potter and Twilight

In a video for GQ (via Screen Rant) in which Robert Pattinson reflects on various roles throughout his career, the actor revealed that it was his suggestion that both Hogwarts student Cedric Diggory in "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" and vampire Edward Cullen in "Twilight" be introduced to audiences in the same fashion.

"It was definitely my concept to jump out of the tree at the beginning for my intro, which I then kind of repeated later on in 'Twilight,'" Pattinson told GQ. "For some reason, I always have the suggestion to be like, 'Why doesn't he just appear just jumping out of a tree?'"

While the suggestion to make a grand entrance by jumping out of a tree on its face appears slightly out of the ordinary to suggest once, much less twice, both introductions are within reason given Cedric's and Edward's otherworldly gifts. Whether Pattinson suggested to Reeves that Bruce Wayne, aka Batman, makes his introduction by leaping out of a tree in his latest big-screen adventure is yet to be seen. Audiences will find out for certain when "The Batman" opens in theaters on March 4.
