BATMAN: HUSH Star Jason O'Mara On Batman's Legacy & Why Fans Should Give Robert Pattinson A Chance - <font color=red>EXCLUSIVE</font>

In an excerpt from our interview with Batman: Hush star Jason O'Mara, he reflects on being part of an elite club of actors to have played the Dark Knight and urges fans to give Robert Pattinson a chance...

Batman: Hush is now available on digital and physical media platforms, and we recently had the opportunity to talk to star Jason O'Mara. He's been playing the Dark Knight since 2014's Justice League: War and has now starred in a total of ten animated movies as the iconic DC Comics hero. 

During our conversation, I asked Jason what it feels like to be among the elite group of actors to have played Batman and as well as reflecting on what it's been like to take on the role, he explained why he believes that fans need to give Robert Pattinson a chance ahead of The Batman's release in 2021.

"I've never really looked at it like that to be honest. I've just taken it one movie at a time and it's one potato, two potato and now there now a canon of work seven or eight years later. I'll tell you what, though, it's an absolute honour and privilege to be asked back every time I do get asked. I don't know if it puts me in any sort of pantheon and I don't really look at it that way.

"I think what's key in all of this for any actor playing Batman, including this new fella Robert Pattinson who's got his work cut out, and by the way, I think everyone should give the kid a chance, but at the same time I think what's really important is that we're all just there to serve this character. Batman was around long before I was born and he'll be around long after I'm gone.

"You wear the Bat symbol for a short amount of time and all you can really hope to do is leave it in a slightly better place than where you found it and that's it. You move on and so any opportunity you get, you just do the best work that you can and it's up for others to decide whether it's any good or not."

That's a great answer, and you can read more of his thoughts on this (including why playing Batman is similar to Doctor Who) in our full interview later today.

Most fans have given Pattinson a chance since he landed the role of the Dark Knight, but there are those who are completely against the casting decision despite the fact that they haven't even seen a photo of him decked out in the cape and cowl yet!

What do you guys think about O'Mara's take on the legacy of playing Batman? 

Batman: Hush comes to DVD, Blu-Ray, Blu-Ray Steelbook And Blu-Ray Mini Fig Edition August 12.
