Christian Bale says he would return as Batman if Christopher Nolan is directing the film.
Bale famously rejected a very large pay cheque to continue playing Bruce Wayne in Nolan’s Batman trilogy, but has admitted that there is the possibility of his return, under one condition.
Speaking to ScreenRant, Bale 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.’
‘Nobody’s ever mentioned it to me though. No one’s brought it up.’
‘Occasionally people say to me, ‘Oh, I hear you were approached and offered all this.’
‘And I’m like, ‘That’s news to me. No one’s ever said that’.
