PREY Star Dane DiLiegro Shares Hopes For A BATMAN/PREDATOR Crossover With Christian Bale's Dark Knight

Prey star Dane DiLiegro has revealed that he would be open to returning as the Predator for a crossover with Batman, though he'd like to see Christian Bale back in the costume for that epic showdown...

The Predator franchise expanded greatly after that 1987 movie, crossing over into comic books, video games, and the Alien series once upon a time (the less said about that, the better). The iconic monster has even squared off with Batman on the page, but could that become a reality in live-action? 

Unfortunately, we're not banking on it. Disney now owns the property after acquiring Fox, hence why we recently got a reboot, Prey, on Hulu. That's taken the franchise back to basics and earned universally positive reviews from fans and critics alike, so we're guessing any sort of flashy crossovers probably aren't on the table for the foreseeable future.

Despite that, Predator actor Dane DiLiegro and character effects artist Tom Woodruff would love to see this iteration of the alien test itself against Gotham City's Caped Crusader.

"I like the idea of Batman fighting a Predator," Woodruff told ComicBook.com (via SFFGazette.com). "I'll take that one. Dane, if nobody else goes for it, you and me and a little camcorder, we're going to make this work."

As for which big screen Batman he'd like to face, DiLiegor added, "I like [Christian] Bale's. I like what they did with his character, that tank that he drives. I would have to go Christian Bale would probably be the most formidable. [Ben] Affleck is a Boston guy. I'm from Boston. We'd get into conversation about things."

If any meeting with a comic book character happens, it will be with one from the Marvel Universe. A number of variant covers featuring various characters facing the Predator have already been released, so we'd bet that the formidable hunter battles Spider-Man and The Avengers long before crossing paths with Batman again. 

Still, it's definitely a fun prospect to think about the Predator fighting Batman in live-action, and a real shame it will probably never happen. You never know with Hollywood, though. 

Predator vs. Batman. Who is your money on? Let us know down in the comments section.
