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.
