Robert Pattinson is receiving all-praise from former Batman Christian Bale. The Dark Knight actor, who handed over the cape to Ben Affleck after the Dark Knight trilogy, has been sharing his reaction to Pattinson playing the new Cape Crusader at the Toronto International Film Festival. Bale is at TIFF for the premiere of his upcoming movie Ford v Ferrari. While he already gave his seal of approval to Pattinson, Bale has now praising the new Batman actor in a new interview. 

Speaking with Entertainment Tonight, Bale was asked his thoughts about Pattinson donning the Batsuit for Matt Reeves' The Batman movie. Bale feels that the 33-year-old actor is a great choice to play the role. He was confident that the Twilight fame star would pull it off the role with ease. 

"All the best to him! You know, I think he's an absolutely fantastic actor. Wonderful choice for Batman!" Bale declared. The 45-year-old gave a handy piece of advice to Pattinson as well. Talking to Variety, he recalled the advice he gave Affleck and said, "Just be able to pee by yourself. You don’t feel much like a superhero when you can’t take a piss by yourself." 

Warner Bros announced the decision of casting Pattinson as the new Batman earlier this summer. The news was not welcomed gracefully by DC fans. Several Batman fans took to social media to express their dissatisfaction over Pattinson's casting. A petition was also started urging WB to reconsider their choice. Reacting to the news, Pattinson recently said, "To be honest, it was less vitriolic than I was expecting. It’s much more fun when you’re an underdog. There’s no expectation of you."
