Christian Bale Says He ‘Didn’t Quite Nail’ Batman — And Heath Ledger Made Him Look Bad!

There’s about to be a new Batman in town as Ben Affleck‘s version of The Dark Knight will make his debut in Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice on March 25.

We’re definitely interested to see how Affleck will handle the role of Bruce Wayne, but like several other people we won’t be able to help ourselves from comparing Ben to Christian Bale‘s performances in the Christopher Nolan trilogy.

While everyone else will be scrutinizing Batfleck, apparently Bale isn’t too happy with his own performance as the Caped Crusader.

In an interview with Yahoo! Movies, the Brit opened up about his role saying:

“I didn’t quite manage what I hoped I would throughout the trilogy. Chris did, but my own sense of self is like, ├óΓé¼╦£I didn’t quite nail it.'”

Part of what has Christian down on his performance was Heath Ledger showing up in The Dark Knight — and stealing the show!

The 42-year-old actor said of his costar:

“Heath turned up, and just kind of completely ruined all my plans. Because I went, ‘He’s so much more interesting than me and what I’m doing.'”

Don’t be so hard on yourself! How can anyone compare to the late Ledger?

Oh, sorry, Jared Leto

Do you agree with Christian’s harsh words for himself?!
