- Is Christian Bale’s Bat Symbol fake?
- Fans missed out on a major difference between the mask of both Batman
Whose Bat Symbol is real? Bale or Pattinson’s?
Pattinson’s bat emblem was not only larger than Bale’s. But it could also be detached and used as a sharp weapon, similar to a Batarang. His character used the bat symbol to cut a cord near the end of the film.
When it comes to Bale’s Bat symbol, it was more of an artistic symbol. But it was undeniably more elegant than previous live-action Batman outfit adaptations. It could only mean that Pattinson’s Bat symbol holds more power than that Christian Bale’s.
Did you notice this difference in their mask?
There was also a difference in their masks that you might have missed.
Christian Bale’s face mostly got hidden beneath his Batman mask, with only his mouth and a small portion of his chin visible. On the other hand, Pattinson’s mask exposes almost the entire lower half of his face, including his cheeks, mouth, and chin.
Bale’s mask was also considerably more polished than Pattinson’s. It appeared to be sculpted to suit Bale’s face flawlessly, whereas Pattinson’s mask had visible stitching, which appeared to be made of leather, and had a hand-made aspect.
Who has better fighting skills: Bale or Pattinson?
Robert Pattinson’s Batman is more acrobatic and has greater fighting skills than Christian Bale’s Batman. On the other hand, Bale’s Batman was great with gadgets but sloppy in combat.
However, this could be because the choreography in Matt Reeves’ film was far superior, making Pattinson appear faster. Due to the improved technology, the battle scenes in the film got shot in a much more professional manner.
How different was the portrayal of Bruce Wayne?
One of the most noticeable distinctions between the two Batman depictions is their Bruce Wayne identities. Bruce Wayne and Batman, as played by Pattinson, are almost identical in appearance. They’re both dark, bleak, and melancholy people.
On the other hand, Christian Bale’s Bruce Wayne is quite different from his Batman. His Bruce Wayne is charming, dressed in high-end suits, socialising with supermodels, and driving high-end sports vehicles. It was a treat for the fans because they got to see completely different aspects of the same person. This could be the reason why many people prefer Bale’s pleasant Bruce Wayne over Pattinson’s dark Bruce Wayne.
Who had a better social life?
Despite being a billionaire, Robert Pattinson’s Batman character is uninterested in socialising. However, in the first two films, Christian Bale’s Bruce Wayne made a few appearances in social situations, largely to help his Batman character rather than anything else. It also helped him hide his superhuman identity because no one in Gotham could make the connection between him and Batman.
But Robert Pattinson’s Batman was perceived as a recluse, to the point that we could see that the sunlight hurts his eyes, indicating that he was rarely out during the day.
