Why Christian Bale Is Unhappy: 'I Just Stopped and Stared Into Nothing...'

BATMEN

Christian Bale on learning that Ben Affleck would play Batman in the next Superman movie:

“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,'” he told Empire magazine, according to Comic Book Movie.

“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,” Bale added.

“I’m 40,” he said. “The fact that I’m jealous of someone else playing Batman … I think I should have gotten over it by now.”

I’m 45 and I’m jealous of them both.

Hell, I’m jealous of Adam West.
