Christian Bale says he was 'tempted' by Han Solo spin-off movie role

Did Liam Neeson Throw Some Real Housewives-Worthy Shade at the New Star Wars Movie? You Can Now Pre-order Star Wars: The Last Jedi Blu-ray At Best Buy And Target

During a recent interview, Bale spilled out the beans on the matter and said, "Yes, [it was] very tempting".

The actor is now promoting western drama Hostiles and recently wrapped on shooting Backseat, Adam McKay's film about former Vice President Dick Cheney. I not only love the films going back to my childhood but also have a very long relationship with Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall because they did Empire of the Sun many years back. "There was discussion. I hope there'll be future discussions".

With such an impressive resume, Bale could probably pick and choose any role he likes, which leads us to his interest in being part of the Star Wars cinematic universe.

The actor, who has shied away from tentpoles since he hung up his Bat cape, admitted that although he's a fan of the "Star Wars" series he isn't so big on blockbusters or superhero movies, generally speaking. It is fitting that Williams, who has scored every Star Wars film with the exception of Rogue One, will provide what we hope will be another iconic character theme.

As it turns out, this isn't just a passing fancy on Bale's part, as he also revealed he is, in fact, a "huge fan", that he still has his Millennium Falcon and AT-AT toys he collected as a child.

Her first love was Darth Vader. "She absolutely adored Darth Maul".

While it appears that Bale is keen to take on a sci-fi movie, it seems unlikely he will appear in another superhero film in the near future. In addition to the Dark Knight trilogy, Bale also starred as John Connor in Terminator: Salvation.

For the record, Bale said he has not yet seen Ben Affleck as Batman, but he said, "Yes I'm interested" in seeing him in the new DC films. "People seem surprised at that, I don't know why. I hear they're very good, but I'm quite happy just hearing they're very good".

Here in the U.S., the culmination of Phase One of the Marvel Cinematic Universe was Marvel's The Avengers, yet due to the popularity of a British television series with a similar name, the film was released as "Avengers Assemble" in the UK.
