Christian Bale has voiced his approval of Robert Pattinson’s casting as the new Batman.
“Good choice! He’s interesting,” Bale told Variety when asked about the casting at the Toronto Film Festival.
Bale portrayed Batman in Christopher Nolan’s lauded Dark Knight trilogy.
Bale’s Ford v. Ferrari co-star Matt Damon, who was also in the interview, weighed in, “Did you see the Safdie brothers movie he did? He was fantastic,” referring to Pattinson’s 2017 crime drama Good Time where he received critical praise for the portrayal of a bank robber trying to free his brother from prison. IGN listed all of Pattison’s best movies that show he’s got the acting chops to portray Batman, Good Time included.
