Christian Bale, class 74, is considered by many to be one of the best actors of his generation; Much appreciated for the Batman of him in the trilogy of The Dark Knight by director Christopher Nolan, he earned 3 nominations and won 1 Oscar for best actor for the film The Fighter. The actor, however, has stated that he has always had an interest in a particular role that concerns the franchise of Star Wars. These were the words of him on Deadline:
My dream was to play that stormtrooper which appears in the film by Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. I’m sure the real nerds have seen that scene ad nauseam, the one where the soldier of the Empire accidentally bangs his head against the door jamb. All I ever wanted to have in Star Wars was bang my head against the wall and have a Star Wars costume.
After the teasing words, Bale revealed that he obviously would have liked to have a bigger role in the franchise as well and that he still owns some toys from the Star Wars movies since he was little.
He was recently seen in the Marvel movie Thor: Love and Thunder where he plays an antagonist that many fans consider as one of the most interesting ever in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, namely Gorr the Slaughterer of the Gods. Curiously, the actor is convinced that he was cast for the role because he shares similar aspects with the character. In November 2022, Amsterdam will be released in Italian cinemas, a new film starring him along with other well-known names, such as Margot Robbie and John David Washington.
