It seems Christian Bale may have been pretty close to doing a fourth Batman movie as the actor admits he wanted to play the role again.
Bale also recounts hearing the news about Ben Affleck cast as Batman for Batman Vs. Superman and was envious of the decision.
Speaking with Empire Magazine, Bale said, “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.'”
It has been rumored that Bale was offered an obscene amount of money for a fourth Batman film, which may have been the case, but obviously the decision was made to go with Ben Affleck.
“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,” Bale said.
Christian Bale stars in “Exodus: Gods and Kings,” out December 12th.
