Christian wants Batman to have sex

Christian Bale wants producers to make two versions of the next Batman movie - so the Caped Crusader can have sex.

The Batman Begins star, who will play Batman again in any sequel, would like one film for kids and another aimed at over 17s.

He told the Sun: "I do think there is a lot of room for, like, an R-rated Batman. It's a little bit tricky to broach the sex aspect of the story when you want kids to come see this as well.

I mean, we still like for a 12-year-old to come see it and enjoy it. I think it would be very interesting, myself, to do two different cuts of it.

"The (Batman) graphic novel certainly dove into his private life because it's fascinating. He's got to do something sexual at some point.

I think it could be an interesting storyline to take somewhere."
