Once you play an iconic character, you’ve pretty much accepted that you’ll be involved in conversations about that character until your dying day. Such is the case with every actor who has played Batman. It’s been ten years since Christian Bale last played Batman in The Dark Knight Risesbut he is still often asked about the character and any new actors taking on the role.
Robert Pattinson took on the role of the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves’ last year the batter, which turned out to be a huge success. During the recent premiere of Thor: Love and Thunderwas Christian Bale asked by Marc Malkin of Variety what he thought? the batterbut it turns out that the actor hasn’t had time to see it yet.
I still haven’t seen it. I will see. Listen, mate, it’s amazing how few movies I see. Every director I work with has seen a few of their movies and they always look at me and say, “Are you kidding?” I really like movies and I don’t watch too much. But I will, I certainly will. Robert is an absolutely amazing actor. We met, talked about it a bit beforehand and I heard wonderful things.
When Robert Pattinson was attacked after his casting in 2019, Christian Bale came to defend him and offered some advice. †just make it [your] own, don’t listen to the naysayers,said Bale. †That’s about it, everyone protested when Heath [Ledger] was cast as the Joker. Look what an absolutely brilliant performance he gave. Don’t listen to those guys, do your own thing. He is a fascinating actor, he is a good choice.“Give it another year and we’ll check in to see if Christian Bale watched the batter yet.
Christian Bale will next star as Gorr the God Butcher along with Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman and Tessa Thompson. Thor: Love and Thunder† The Marvel movie will be released on 8 July†
