Earlier this summer Ben Affleck’s replacement as Batman was announced as none other than Twilight star Robert Pattinson. The 33-year-old is set to star as the new Dark Knight in Matt Reeves’ 2021 Batman solo outing. The new film is believed to be set in the 1990s and focused on the Caped Crusader in his prime. And now three-time Batman star Christian Bale has shared his advice with Pattinson for playing the superhero, which included a stark warning about his costume.
Speaking with Variety, Bale said: “Good choice! He’s interesting.”
Asked what advice he’d give he said: “Oh, same as Ben [Affleck], just be able to pee by yourself.
“You don’t feel like a superhero when you aren’t able to p**s by yourself.”
Bale was, of course, referring to the restrictive nature of the Batman suit.
Meanwhile, plot details for Pattinson’s solo outing may have leaked.
According to film insider Daniel Richtman, the film is going to be very detective focused, taking Batman back to his roots.
