There was a lot of chaos on social media after DC and Warner Bros announced Robert Pattinson will be the next Batman. The actor was chosen to don the cape after Ben Affleck chose to step down from the project. Pattinson is the second youngest actor to essay the role of Batman. Fans weren't prepared to accept that the Twilight star would be seen as the new Bruce Wayne on the big screen. Fans took to Twitter to share their reactions. A petition was also floated asking WB to reconsider their pick. 

However, Christian Bale seems to vision Pattinson as the Batman. The actor, who played the Batman in The Dark Knight series, was at the Toronto International Film Festival 2019 when he shared his thoughts on the new Batman casting. Bale spoke with Variety and gave his approval the new Batman. He sounded assured that Pattinson is a good choice for the Batman. He felt that's an interesting casting. 

"Oh, good. Good choice, he’s interesting. I’m sure he’ll come up with something interesting," Bale said. He was asked about a piece of advice he would give Pattinson. He said, "Oh, same as for Ben [Affleck]. Just be able to pee by yourself. You don’t feel much like a superhero when you can’t take a piss by yourself." 

Pattinson recently revealed he was discussing the Batsuit with The Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan. Pattinson is currently working with the ace filmmaker on Tenet. When he learned about his casting, the actor couldn't help but ask him about the Batsuit. "I was talking about things to do with the Batsuit. How to get more movements in it," Pattinson told Variety in a recent interview. 

With Bale's approval, we think fans would give Pattinson a chance.
