Former BATMAN Actor Christian Bale Lauds Choice Of Robert Pattinson As The Next Dark Knight
While promoting his upcoming film with Matt Damon and director James Mangold at TIFF, Christian Bale was asked to share his thoughts on the recent casting of Robert Pattinson as the new Batman.
Rumors are already beginning to surface, starting with the more recent report that Reeves is envisioning his Catwoman to be more Eartha Kitt than Anne Hathaway. There's also been a recent report that Mahershala Ali was Reeves' first choice for the role of Commissioner Gordon before the news broke that he had already signed up to reboot Blade for Marvel Studios.
For now, the only known quantity is that Robert Pattinson will be the latest actor under the cowl, and at this year's Toronto International Film Festival, Variety caught up with former Dark Knight trilogy actor Christian Bale to get his assessment of Pattinson.
"Ah, good...good choice. He's interesting," said Bale as he also agreed with Ford v Ferrari director James Mangold's comment that Pattinson is a good actor.
As for the advice that he would give Pattinson for the role, Bale said it's the same thing that he previously told Ben Affleck, "Be able to pee by yourself. You don't feel much like a superhero when you can't take a piss by yourself."
