In the interview, Bale talks about his reaction to seeing Ben Affleck announced as the new Batman. Check out the actor's candid remarks below.
“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.’ 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.
“But I’m 40,” he said. “The fact that I’m jealous of someone else playing Batman…I think I should have gotten over it by now. I haven’t spoken with Ben, but I emailed him offering bits of advice that I learned the hard way. I would imagine he is doing everything he can to avoid anything that I did.”
When news surfaced that Warner Bros. was making 'Batman v Superman' I was pretty sure Bale would return as the Dark Knight one more time. However, I think Affleck was a smart choice to take up the role. Do you wish Bale had signed on for the superhero team-up or was it a wise decision to let someone else have a chance at Batman?
