Robert Pattinson’s Batman was introduced to us in The Batman (2022), as a Batman who has been watching over Gotham for a while now from his dark and gritty “Batcave.” The film lands itself with a strong social message and cinematic shots. The use of social media and metaphors from the bible are woven into the story making it more complex and layered.
After Pattinson’s Batman performed well among DC fans; the debate about Bale vs Pattinson grew louder each day. Even today after nearly one year of release Pattinson’s Batman has people’s support while some side loyally with Nolan’s Batman played by Bale.
Fans argue that Robert Pattinson’s Batman would annihilate the Dark Knight
Crime fighting hero played by Pattinson lurks under the shadows waiting for his enemies to weaken so he can take them. In the first film, the hero is living two lives that create an inner conflict, this inner conflict is flued by external circumstances like Riddler and his highly intellectual tricks.
Along with this he also has the physique to fight off the bad guys chasing him, bombing him, and shooting him. Bale’s Batman was better in terms of acting performances and story but Pattinson’s Batman would beat him any day. Fans tweeted supporting Robert Pattinson’s Batman,
And to be fair Pattinsons Batman moves a lot faster than bales Batman.

Also doesn’t Bale’s suit like stop knives at best? Wasn’t that mentioned? Vs Pattinson being able to walk through storms of bullets

I'm glad someone else points out how AWFUL the fight choreography was in Nolan's trilogy.
Nothing felt intense or hard hitting. He just puts his elbows up and taps them with the worst sounding punches.
