Report: Christian Bale Still Wanted as Batman, Offered $60M to Return

At the same time, 'Breaking Bad' star Bryan Cranston expresses interest in playing Lex Luthor in the 'Man of Steel' follow-up, saying, 'Give me a call.'

Is there still a chance for fans to see Christian Bale suit up as Batman again despite his retirement announcement? According to report from The Sun (via Badass Digest), the answer is yes. The tabloid claims that Warner Bros. is still trying to change the actor's mind by offering him a great $60 million deal to return in the Superman-Batman movie.

Bale, of course, fits all of the reported requirements. He is 39 and already an established actor in movie industry. However, considering that the English star once said he wanted to return only if Christopher Nolan was back as director, it is safe to say that Zack Snyder, the man behind the lens for the upcoming "Man of Steel" follow-up, might have to find someone else.

While the search for the Bruce Wayne depicter is still underway, a "Breaking Bad" actor who has long been linked to the project finally speaks up about it. Lex Luthor, the villain that has come into conflict with both heroes in comics, has been rumored showing up in it. Among two names linked to the role, Bryan Cranston is named frontrunner by media outlet.

In an interview with Metro, Cranston says he's heard of the report and apparently is interested in tackling the role. "Give me a call. I like Lex Luthor. I think he's misunderstood. He's a loveable, sweet man," he admits with a grin.

To be released in 2015, the crossover movie will see Henry Cavill reprising role as Superman.
