Hollywood star Christian Bale revealed that he has not yet seen Robert Pattinson’s Batman still. Bale had played the role of the caped crusader in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy. In 2022, Matt Reeves released a new version starring Robert Pattinson, Zoe Kravitz, Paul Dano, and Colin Farrell, among others.
Bale, who is in the middle of thor love and thunder promotions, told Variety, “I haven’t seen it yet. I’ll see. Listen mate, it’s amazing how few movies I watch. All the directors I work with, I’ve seen a couple of his movies and they always look at me and say, ‘Are you kidding me?’ I really like to savor movies and I don’t watch too many. But I will, I certainly will. Robert is an absolutely wonderful actor. We met, talked about it a little bit ahead of time, and I heard wonderful things.”
In Thor Love And Thunder, Bale plays Gorr the God Butcher. He mentioned that the deciding factor in joining the Marvel movie was his two sons. “I always look at who is directing it, who are the people involved, is it a good story, am I going to get something out of it,” Bale said. “With this one, it was my kids saying, ‘By the way, are you doing this,’ and I said, ‘Am I really?’ And they said, ‘Yes, you are,’ and I said, ‘Okay, yes, I am.’” The film, directed by Taika Watiti, stars Chris Hemsworth reprising his role as Thor, along with Tessa Thompson and Natalie Portman.
Previously, Bale had told TotalFilm that he didn’t even know what the MCU term was. “That never even crossed my mind. He would read it and people would say, ‘Oh, look at this! He’s entered the MCU!’ And I was like, ‘I’ve done what? I didn’t go into sh*t, thank you very much.’ I’m like, ‘The MCU?’ I had to ask what that was.”
Thor: Love and Thunder opens on July 7 in India.
