Holt previously spoke about how he also auditioned for the role of Bruce Wayne in the Matt Reeves movie Batman, a part that eventually went to Robert Pattinson. While it was obviously a problem to miss out on the iconic role, Holt later realized it was for the best when he saw how Batman turned.

So I don’t think I would have done as well as him in the end. I don’t think I could have adapted to the world Matt created the way Rob did.”
