Hollywood actor Christian Bale is arguably one of the best actors around today. Fans around the world love the star for his amazing acting talent and the many fantastic roles that he has played. However, many fans believe that Batman was the best role the actor has played in his career, and hence, they want him to return as the Caped Crusader. In a recent interview, Christian Bale has confirmed that he is willing to return as the DC Comics superhero on one condition.
Christian Bale Confirms He’s Willing To Return as Batman
In a recent interview with ScreenRant in the backdrop of Bale’s upcoming MCU debut film, Thor: Love and Thunder, the actor opened up about the possibility of him reprising the Batman role. He said that he is willing to return as the Caped Crusader if director Christopher Nolan helms the project. He said:
I had a pact with Chris Nolan. We said, “Hey, look. Let’s make three films, if we’re lucky enough to get to do that. And then let’s walk away. Let’s not linger too long.” In my mind, it would be something if Chris Nolan ever said to himself, “You know what, I’ve got another story to tell.” And if he wished to tell that story with me, I’d be in.
Fans Want Christian Bale To Return as Batman
Fans were overjoyed with Bale’s comments and many want a Batman film along the lines of the 2017 film Logan. Where an older Logan ( Huge Jackman) comes out of retirement. Many speculate that such a film would be a blockbuster and has all the things fans want.
Nolan should make Batman 4, Logan style, and co-directed by Sam Raimi
