Reactions to the news that Ben Affleck would be donning the cape and cowl as the next Batman have been mixed.
But fans aren't the only ones who were affected but the news. Previous Caped Crusaders were as well!
Until now, Christian Bale has kept his reaction to himself, and it may be because he was a touch embarrassed!
You see, the Dark Knight star went through some pretty intense feels over the news! He finally admitted:
"Let me say this in a way you'll understand. No Christian Bale?! NO MOVIE!!"
At least that's how we imagine it went down over at Sony.
After Christian bailed on the project, it looks like the Steve Jobs biopic is no more.
The film, which was written by Newsroom creator Aaron Sorkin and was set to be directed by Slumdog Millionaire's Danny Boyle, has been put in turnaround.
That's a Hollywood euphemism for "not being worked on anymore."
The movie sounded like a winner, so who knows? Maybe it'll find its feet somewhere else.
A courthouse might be a place you'd expect to find justice…

According to the latest reports, the Dark Knight star went through a long deliberation process over the film but ultimately decided he just wasn't right for the part.
This update is going to make you want to restart!
With Christian Bale starring as Mr. Jobs, this movie just keeps on getting better. It's like recieving-a-new-operating-system level of better.
Meanwhile, Jessica Chastain is being considered for an unspecified role. Maybe Siri? Just kidding, that's ridiculous.
The movie, written by Aaron Sorkin and to be directed by Danny Boyle, will be comprised of three extended scenes focusing on the backstage drama before three different product launches.
Well, we're pumped for Seth! This could be his big dramatic break.
It's official! Christian Bale will play Steve Jobs!
Writer Aaron Sorkin confirmed the casting with glowing praise, saying:
"We needed the best actor on the board in a certain age range and that's Chris Bale."
Aaron says the Dark Knight star didn't even have to audition! He says:
We always knew proofreading mattered!
When Christian Bale signed on to be in The Machinist, he wasn't supposed to get THAT skinny!
In fact, the 6'2" actor did it all because of a little editorial oversight.
Co-star Michael Ironside recently explained what happened, saying:
