As mentioned before that isn't possible as that isn't the flow for HandlerInterceptors... You cannot change that flow unless you rewrite part of the DispatcherServlet...
This is what happens and which is coded into the DispatcherServlet, so if you want to change that you need to rewrite part of the DispatcherServlet.
Also mapping something to /** is inherently dangerous especially if your DispatcherServlet is also mapped to /* or / as that could disable correct resolving of static files.
You still haven't explained your use case only the technical difficulties/solution of your use case.. What is it that you want to accomplish?!
