Christian Bale still wishes he hadn’t passed on the mantle of the caped crusader.

Bale will always be known for his roles in The Dark Knight trilogy, but wishes he had one more run.

“I’ve got to admit initially, even though I felt that it was the right time to stop, there was always that bit of me going, ‘Oh go on… Let’s do another,’” Bale told Empire Magazine in the December issue.

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

Bale’s successor, Ben Affleck, will make his debut as Batsy in 2016’s Batman vs Superman.
