Christian Bale, who played Batman in Christopher Nolan's "Dark Knight" trilogy from 2005-2012, said he's open to suiting up as the caped crusader one more time -- providing Nolan was back on board as well.
"I had a pact with Chris Nolan," Bale recently told Screen Rant. "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."
He said no one has asked him about returning though.
"No one's ever mentioned it to me. No one's brought it up," he told Screen Rant. "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.'"
Nolan’s trilogy kicked off with "Batman Begins" in 2005, followed by "The Dark Knight" in 2008 and "The Dark Knight Rises" in 2012.
Currently, Robert Pattinson is set to reprise his roles as the hero in a sequel to director Matt Reeves' hit "The Batman."
Oscar-winner Bale will soon make his Marvel debut, playing the villain Gorr the God Butcher in "Thor: Love and Thunder," opening nationwide July 8.
