HOLLYWOOD star Robert Pattinson has spoken of his love for Glasgow as The Batman premiere took place in London.

The US actor, who is starring in the film, added that he was disappointed the cast wasn't able to film in person in Scotland.

Parts of the movie were shot in Scotland's biggest city, with the Necropolis set as Gotham City in one trailer.

The blockbuster's premiere finally took place in the UK's capital following months of delays due to Covid.

Pattinson is joined on the film with stars Colin Farrell, Paul Dano, Andy Serkis and Zoe Kravitz.

Speaking to STV News at the red carpet event, Pattinson said he was excited to see fans' reactions to the next phase of the Batman franchise.

He said: “It’s surreal. This is going to be the first audience that have ever seen it outside of friends and family or people who won’t tell me the truth."

He continued: "We were supposed to be there for a month. It’s very disappointing. I love Glasgow though.”

Director Matt Reeves added that the crew loved shooting the film in Scotland.

He told STV: “I wish we could have shot there more. It’s such a beautiful place.

“We shot in the Necropolis and we wanted to do some other things. But, you know, because of Covid and the time, it was very targeted what we did. But I hope we’ll be back.”

The Batman will be released in the UK on Thursday.
