Christian Bale Wanted To Play Batman Again

Posted by Photo Boy

Before the Internet collectively shat itself over Ben Affleck being cast as Batman, there was fleeting hope that Christian Bale was going to return for a Justice League movie until he effectively shot that shit down. But now, to the gnashing teeth of nerds everywhere who already decided to pretend that Batfleck isn’t going to suck balls even though Daredevil, it seems the hero they deserved, but not the one they needed right now really needed to be deserved after all. (I have no clue what I’m talking about anymore.) via FilmDrunk:

“I’ve got to admit initially, even though I felt that it was the right time to stop, there was always that 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 doing anything that I did.”

You mean he’s trying to not completely turf the last act of a trilogy after immediately making probably the most iconic super-hero movie of all time? Yes, that’s a given, but I’m sure he’s mostly just trying to keep Zack Snyder away from the slo-mo button in the edit bay. “Quickly Jennifer, he’s licensing an Evanescence song for the soundtrack, you know what to do!” *roundhouse kicks head off*
