Bale, Kennedy may reunite on Star Wars film

Christian Bale Dark Knight Solo Star Wars Christian Bale confirmed that he was in talks to appear in Solo A Star Wars Story during an interview on the Happy Sad Confused podcast

As recalled, he headlined Christopher Nolan's "Dark Knight" trilogy and starred as John Connor in "Terminator: Salvation". As would be expected with a franchise like Star Wars, Bale didn't go into great detail about what he was being considered for, though fans have speculated that it could have been for the mentor role being played by Woody Harrelson.

Christian Bale has revealed that he was nearly cast in Solo: A Star Wars Story.

A Star Wars Story which chronicles the young Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich) from years of 18-24 in his life and will include meeting Chewbacca (Joonas Suotomo) and finding (or perhaps winning) the Millennium Falcon from Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover).

"Yes, [it was] very tempting", he said in the podcast. He confirmed, "There was discussion", adding, "I hope there will be future discussions".

David Beckham launches L'Oreal men's grooming products
The brand has been in development for the last two years and is already tipped to take over the burgeoning men's grooming market. Set to feature a reported 21 grooming products on launch, the House 99 line is due to hit shelves globally in March this year.

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. With Episode IX now in pre-production (with new roles to be cast) and Last Jedi director Rian Johnson developing his all-new trilogy, there will be plenty of opportunities for Bale in the future. "She absolutely adored Darth Maul", the 43-year-old shared. "[She] stood near him at Disneyland and he growled and he's got those teeth and he stayed in character, really wonderful performance, and she was teeny and I thought, 'This is gonna scare the crap out of her, this is such a bad idea.' And then she stopped and she said, 'Daddy, I'm in love'".

"I have not [seen Ben Affleck's Batman]". I have to confess I'm not a huge superhero film fan. "People seem surprised at that, I don't know why".

Exactly one year ago this week, rumors began to swirl that actor Christian Bale was originally involved with the new Star Wars film.

But Bale's final quote above lays out his hope that he'll find a Star Wars movie to fit into one day, and considering how top notch the casts are for those films, it may not be long until we see him bring his brand of intensity to that cinematic universe. His assignment is something I'm very happy about.
