Christian Bale’s Reaction to Ben Affleck as Batman

Christian Bale as Batman

In a recent interview with Empire Magazine the actor was asked how he felt when he first learned about Ben Affleck being cast as the new Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Keep in mind it was Christian Bale who said he won’t do any other Batman movie after The Dark Knight Rises. Now he being shocked as Ben Affleck being Batman is very unsettling. He might want to have a one last go as Batman.

“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. 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.”
