When Christian Bale took on the role of ‘Batman’ for The Dark Knight, he had to make drastic changes to his physique due to the weight he had lost for The Machinist. His role as ‘Gotham City’s vigilante was highly celebrated, which led to a franchise with three films.
It has since been revealed that Robert Pattinson will be next to put on the iconic cape in the upcoming Batman film, and Bale is confident of Pattinson’s ability to take on the role and do it justice.
“All the best to him!” Bale told ET’s Ash Crossan at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival, describing the English actor as “an absolutely fantastic actor” who would be a “wonderful choice” to reprise the role.
On Pattinson’s end, the actor spoke about undertaking the role of ‘Batman’ in an interview with Variety earlier this month, and stated that the ‘Batsuit’ felt “transformative” to him and that it made him feel “very powerful immediately.”
Previously, the actor felt anxious about losing this exact role when the leak about his casting became public. However, the position has been secured and we can expect to see Pattinson onscreen as our newly-crowned ‘Batman’ in June 2021. The film will be directed and written by War for the Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves.
