“I had a deal with Chris Nolan,” Bale said. “We said, ‘Hey, look. Let’s make three films if we’re lucky enough to make it. And then let’s go. Let’s not stay too long.” In my mind, it would be something if Chris Nolan ever said to himself, “You know what, I have another story to tell.” And if he were willing to tell this story with me, I would be in business.”

Bale and Nolan’s bold and visually striking take on the comic book character broke records for the 2008 sequel The Dark Knight Rises by taking the crown as Highest-grossing Batman film ever made.

He continued to praise Pattinson for his talents on the big screen. “Robert is an absolutely wonderful actor. We bumped into each other, talked a bit about it beforehand, and I heard wonderful things.”
