When asked in June 2022 if he would play Batman again, Bale said, “No one has ever brought it up to me. No one has talked about it. People sometimes tell me, “Oh, I heard that someone came up to you and offered you all this.” And I’m like, “I didn’t know that. No one has ever said that before.”
Bale also said at the time, “I had a deal with Chris Nolan.” “We said, ‘Hey, look. If we’re lucky enough to be able to, let’s make three movies. After that, let’s leave.
We shouldn’t stay too long.’ I think it would be interesting if Chris Nolan ever looked in the mirror and said, “You know what? I have something else to say.’ And if he wanted to tell me that story, I would listen.”

Nolan switched to Universal for his planned atomic bomb thriller, “Oppenheimer.” “Studios are now looking at a script as a list of events as well as say, ‘This is what the movie is all about,’ whether it’s to save money or keep things in order.

“But it’s a common mistake, even among critics, to think that the size of the tale being told is all that matters.”
Nolan was also asked in the interview if a movie alongside a bigger budget possesses a greater likelihood of doing well at the box office. Nolan said that a movie’s price was “kind of irrelevant.” He said that he is more interested about the “interaction of the topic of matter with the budget.”
Nolan said that his first movie, Following, from 1998, was made with almost no money. But the story was written alongside that in mind, so the price as well as the subject of the matter were both in sync, he stated.
“So, I think that as long as you can keep that balance, your chances of making a good film are the same at any level,” he said. When Christian Bale said that he would like to play Batman again.

He thinks that the companies focus too much on the story and not enough on the sound and pictures.
“People are going to inform you that ‘Star Wars’ was successful not because of its visual effects but because of its outstanding story,” Nolan said. “But, I mean, it’s pretty clear that’s not true. It is a great story, yet it is also a great way to see and hear the world.
So, people are now denying that movies are what they are. People will ask, “Why do you need to see a movie like “Aftersun” in a theater?” But you have to, of course. It looks great on TV, too, but that’s not the point.”
