Before the two stars are cast in the lead roles in the new movie, they must complete a chemistry test in October 2019.
“It’s not just reading lines in the room. So it’s scary to say the least,” Kravitz shared in an interview with Weekly entertainment.
According to Kravitz, she had to wear a motorcycle helmet while looking cool, saying: “I believe that will be my downfall.”
“They had the idea that they wanted me to be taller in the first place, so I’ve basically put on sneakers and I’m stumbling around in this weird Batman costume,” adds Pattinson.
He continued: “The camera isn’t even facing me, it’s at the back of my head, and I’m really having this massive panic attack, just looking for emotional support from Zoë who trying to join.”
Despite the tensions the two may have felt during the audition process, director Matt Reeves said: “They really connected.”
Reeves’ Batman movie will explore the main character as a “symbol of revenge”.
Producer Dylan Clark revealed that both Pattinson and Kravitz, who plays Catwoman, were mentioned as possible actors in the very early writing stages.
“Everybody can see that there is something really special between them,” says Reeves. “The characters are so mythical, and I want to [them] become very flesh and blood. ”
Batman premieres in cinemas on March 4.
