Does Christian Bale Hate The Batman? Actor Reveals He Hasn’t Watched The Movie Yet

Christian Bale will soon be seen as Gorr The God Butcher in Thor: Love and Thunder. Though it was something we hadn’t expected, Taika Waititi somehow managed to convince the actor. And the director claims he is going to be the scariest villain. He has finally joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe but it’s not the first time he is acting in a superhero movie. He was Batman in Christopher Nolan’s  Dark Knight trilogy. It is said to be one of the best superhero movies ever made. But the actor hasn’t watched The Batman yet, and it makes us wonder why?

In an interview with Variety, the actor butchered the Batman fans’ hopes by saying he hasn’t watched the Matt Reeves movie yet.

He said, “I still haven’t seen it. I will see it. Listen, mate, I—it’s amazing how few films I see. Every director I work with, I’ve seen a couple of their films, and they’re always looking at me going, ‘Are you kidding?’ I like to really savor films, and I don’t want to watch too many. But I will, I certainly will. Robert [Pattinson] is an absolutely wonderful actor. We bumped into each other, talked a little bit about it ahead of time, and I hear wonderful things.”

Actors tend to put the franchise behind them after leaving it

It has been a common trend among the actors to put the franchise behind them and not revisit it after they leave it. Chris Evans hasn’t watched any Marvel projects after his tenure as Captain America ended. In fact, he did not even watch his onscreen partner carry the shield as Captain Carter (Hayley Atwell). But it is not a strict rule as some do watch the movies.

But all Batman fans want the actor to watch Robert Pattinson play the Caped Crusader as he could see how his legacy is being carried forward. He might also have some words of advice for the Twilight actor. Also, one of the Dark Knight writers called it a “rewarding” reboot.

Thor: Love and Thunder is releasing on July 7, 2022.
