Christian Bale, who is reprising his role as the caped Crusader for the third and final film in Christopher Nolan’s Batman series, The Dark Knight Rises, has revealed that he will miss wearing the “f**kin’ cool” Batman suit.
Although the famous black costume was uncomfortable at times, the actor has fond memories of the iconic outfit.
“For all the discomfort and the heat and the sweat and the headaches and everything from it, when you sit back and watch the movie at the end of the day, you go: ‘Well, that’s f**kin’ cool.’ I will miss that, I liked the good bit of rubber,” Stuff.co.nz quoted him as telling Collider.com.
The 38-year-old star is also sporting longer hair in the new flick.
Bale explained that he was asked to grow his locks to show how his comic book character has evolved since the last movie, The Dark Knight.
“Yeah, a little,” he admitted when asked if the longer hair has any significance.
“But we’ve always had to mess around... Every single movie that we’ve done for the Batman stuff has always had hair that we’ve had to be able to adapt to different looks throughout. So the longer you keep it the more you can do with it,” he added.
