Alas, but Christopher Nolan, he is a man who is wise to deceive. Fool the creator of Memento? Not so easy.

Okay, so maybe Christopher Nolan is not a master genius; he would, in fact, be the man who kept pushing Tenet released during a pandemic. But at least he’s not all that easy to trick, like Robert Pattinson learned when it was time to do a screen test for the nickname superhero in The Batman.

As reported by the Irish Times (fia Entertainment Weekly), Pattinson filmed Nolan’s Tenet during the audition period for The Batman, which meant that one extremely secretive Blockbuster left to go into the growing production of another extremely secretive Blockbuster. So of course he tried to keep it a secret.

It’s funny because Chris is so secretive about everything to do with his movies, “Pattinson said,” and then I had to be really secretive about Batman things. That I had to suffer against Chris over having to go for a screen test – I had said I had a family need. And as soon as I said ‘it’s a domestic emergency’ he said, ‘You’re doing the Batman audition, aren’t you?’ ”

I suppose trying to keep Christopher Nolan’s Batman secrets in and of himself is probably a bad idea. Not that Pattinson’s Batman role has long been a secret.

Also: seriously, “a domestic need”? That’s a terrible lie. Come on, Robert. You can do better than that. you are an actor.
