What if Christian Bale reprised his iconic role as Bruce Wayne for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice? According to the noughts’ Batman himself, he was jealous of Ben Affleck’s casting as the Dark Knight, and admits he may have wanted to portray the character again.
Speaking to Empire Magazine, Bale gave his account of hearing the news of Ben Affleck being cast as Batman, and recounts,
“I’ve got to admit initially, even though I felt that it was the right time to stop, there was always a bit of me going, ‘Oh go on… Let’s do another.”
Bale goes on to describe the moment of regret he felt when he realized the Gone Girl star would replace him as cinema’s Caped Crusader, saying, “So when I heard there was someone else doing it, there was a moment where I just stopped and stared into nothing for half an hour.”
How do you feel about the idea of Christian Bale’s Batman meeting Henry Cavill‘s Superman? Could we see this play out someday in a Crisis On Infinite Earths movie?
