The Dark Knight Christian Bale has more advice for new Batman Robert Pattinson with comparisons to Heath Ledger playing Joker in the Christopher Nolan movies.
Last week while attending the Toronto Film Festival, Extra caught up with Bale and asked if he has anything to say to Pattinson.
"Good for him," Christian Bale responded with a thumbs up when asked about giving advice to Robert Pattinson. "Just make it his own. Don't listen to the naysayers at all. Think about it. Everybody protested when Heath was cast as the Joker and look what an absolutely brilliant performance he gave. Don't listen to those guys. Do his own thing. He is a fascinating actor. He is a great choice."

Christian Bale also previously gave Robert Pattinson the same Batman advice he gave to Ben Affleck.
"Oh, same as for Ben, just be able to pee by yourself. You don't feel much like a superhero when you can't take a p-ss by yourself," Bale said.

Christian Bale reacts to Joaquin Phoenix as Joker
Regarding Joker, Christian Bale also recently reacted to the new Joaquin Phoenix Joker.
"Joaquin is one of the best actors around. You know," Bale said. "Obviously, I worked with Heath. It's a brave thing to follow up that performance. [Joaquin Phoenix] always makes really interesting choices. Dying to see it. Wish them the best with that."
Robert Pattinson spoke with Christopher Nolan about Batman
Interestingly enough, Robert Pattinson found out about being cast as the new Batman while on the set of Christopher Nolan's latest movie Tenet.
“I was like, ‘What a coincidence this is happening. It’s absolutely crazy,'" Pattinson said about being on set with Nolan and finding out about The Batman. "I was talking about things to do with the Batsuit. How to get more movements in it.”
The Batman opens June 25, 2021 directed by Matt Reeves.
