Christian Bale is Jealous Of Ben Affleck Playing Batman

Christian Bale finally gives his thoughts on the casting of Ben Affleck as Batman in the upcoming film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice!

“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,’” the 40-year-old actor shared to Empire (via ComicBookMovie). “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.”

He added, “The fact that I’m jealous of someone else playing Batman. I think I should have gotten over it by now.”

In case you didn’t know, Christian played Batman from 2005-2012 in the films Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises.

    he’s still my favorite batman.. i don’t even understand why they made ben the new batman. he’s so overrated!

  • Mercyneal

    Bale is hot; Affleck is a dullard and bad actor.

    Also, Affleck is OLDER than Bale. Why did Bale drop out?

  • G’Zilla

    Please! Keaton is Batman…Bale is the 2nd Batman…And I bet after Ben is Batman, people will say “Wow! Ben is Batman!”

  • jcamachott

    Whoever had to play Batman in Batman v Superman would have had to do it in multiple movies after. Bale would not have been up for that.

    Christian Bale might have wanted to do “one” more Batman film (probably only with Nolan), but DC envisions a much longer engagement, so it’s a good thing he decided to drop out. He’s just starting to miss those juicy paychecks.

  • The Truth

    The movie is going to flop big time. First they go and make one of the most stupid decisions ever by hiring Ben Affleck to play Batman who is 2 years older then Christian Bale might I add. Second they have the same guy who not only wrote but directed that awful Superman movie that many people hated. If it wasn’t for Henry Cavill it wouldn’t of flopped

    I feel for Bale, I’ve had moments of realization unveil themselves to me way too late, i hate it when that happens. On the flip side, its ok Bale, don’t beat yourself up about it, they probably would’ve contractually forced you to be in more than one of these franchise films- once they’ve gotcha’ they won’t letcha’ go- lots of love to ya’ Bale *BIG HUG*💙

    i wish it would still be Bale

    Bale will always be Batman. He was the best actor to play that role. I do not know why he bailed on that project to play Batman again
