New images of Batman Robert Pattinson have surfaced online as the actor went for a jog through a local park while on lockdown due to the coronavirus.
Robert Pattinson was spotted in the UK going for a jog and stretching where we see he looks pretty much normal.
The pics show the 33-year-old actor wearing a baseball hat, listening to music through headphones, and wearing a t-shirt and shorts.

Does Robert Pattinson have to be jacked for Batman?
There was actually a rumor that Robert Pattinson was having trouble bulking up which is said to have delayed filming on The Batman, possibly due to waiting on the right size for the new Batsuit.
These latest pics seem to indicate that Robert Pattinson didn't do much weight training, if any, as Pattinson doesn't look to have packed on the pounds.
Former Batman Ben Affleck got into decent shape for his role as DC's Caped Crusader for Zack Snyder, and Christian Bale also looked the part in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Trilogy.
It should be said the Michael Keaton Batman wasn't at all muscular for Tim Burton, and Keaton was a good Batman, so maybe Pattinson doesn't have to look super jacked, as a lot can be done with angles and shadows to show definition.
We can also add the new Batsuit will probably make Robert Pattinson look a lot bigger, so there is that, and we can probably also add that Batman being a martial arts expert and a ninja doesn't necessarily mean he has to be jacked, as someone like a Keanu Reeves isn't jacked, but still looks cool as John Wick when he performs the techniques.
