I definitely didn’t see this coming! In a new interview with Yahoo, Christian Bale revealed that he was disappointed with his portrayal of Batman in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy.
“I didn’t quite manage what I hoped I would throughout the trilogy,” Bale told Yahoo. “Chris did, but my own sense of self is like, ‘I didn’t quite nail it.'”
Bale went on to explain his interpretation of Batman, and how he wanted to bring him to life on screen. But then Heath Ledger came along and took a bit of his confidence away.
“Heath turned up, and just kind of completely ruined all my plans,” Bale said. “Because I went, ‘He’s so much more interesting than me and what I’m doing.'”
That’s very honest, revealing stuff from who most fans consider to be the best Batman actor to date. Check out Bale’s full comments in the video above.
