Christian Bale, who essayed the role of DCs caped-crusader in Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, and happens to be the most loved Batman till date after Adam West, would like to don the bat suit again provided Nolan takes over the reigns for directing the film if ever it is made, reports DeadlineThe Batman: Christian Bale Admits Not Watching Robert Pattinson’s Film, Calls Him an ‘Absolutely Wonderful Actor’.

Bale told Screen Rant, "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."

Deadline, however, noted that the actor also mentioned that he and Nolan spoke about the trajectory of the Batman films before filming even started.

The plan had always been to create a certain amount of movies in this universe. "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," he added.

Meanwhile, Bale is set to play Gorr the God Butcher in Thor: Love And Thunder.
