Robert Pattinson has Christian Bale to thank for the fact that he was able to relieve himself during scenes where he was wearing the Batsuit. Phew.
The latest actor to don the Caped Crusader's famous cowl was informed by previous incumbent Bale to make sure he was able to use the loo while donning the ensemble - the same tip-off he gave to Ben Affleck when he took on the role.
Now, Batman director Matt Reeves has revealed that the design team tackled the obstacle head on.
Speaking during the DC FanDome convention at the weekend, Reeves explained: "One of the big things that Rob actually talked to Christian Bale [about]... [Bale said], 'Just make sure you're going to be able to relieve yourself,' so that was actually part of what was important to build into it.
"Like okay, he needs to be able to put it on. He also needs to be able to live as a human being."
And though the 56-year-old largely remained tight-lipped about what we can expect, he admitted that the film will be more intense than others that have gone before it.
When asked whether fans were right to expect a 'darker, broodier' Batman, the Lord of The Rings star laughed: "I would say that's not far from the truth. It's very much about the emotional connection between Alfred and Bruce. That's really at the centre of it. And it is a really exquisite script that Matt has written."
As well as being eager to see Pattinson, Serkis, Colin Farrell and Zoë Kravitz bringing the popular characters to life in the film, fans are also excited to watch how Paul Dano will fare as The Riddler.
Taking to Twitter in a mad rush, one person wrote: "BRO THE RIDDLER IS GONNA BE SO F***IN SICK OH MY GOD #TheBatman." Another added: "#TheBatman will seemingly feature 'a version of the Riddler' that is unlike what fans are used to. I can't wait for this. Paul Dano's an awesome actor, he's going to kill it."
A third commented: "Paul Dano as the Riddler is perhaps the most excited I've been for any casting in such a long time. GOD DAMN I'M SO STOKED."
Just to psych up fans a whole lot more, director Reeves also offered an opinion - sharing the movie's trailer at DC FanDome, he took the opportunity to praise 36-year-old Dano's performance, saying that he's going to 'blow people's minds'.
The Batman is set to hit cinemas in October next year.
