Christian Bale Will not be the next Batman
It is well known that Christian Bale does not want to be in any Batman movie without Christopher Nolan as the Director. So the idea that has been thrown around the net that he might play in the Justice league movie as Batman seemed somewhat hard to believe. Especially since the movie is not a for sure thing yet.
So in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Bale officially dispelled the rumors that he would be in the justice league film. His actual comments said he had not been approached by anyone and had not even heard anything about the film at all. It did sound like he had heard the film may happen but had definitely not been approached in any way.
Bale was happy to do the third film with Nolan but says that "It’s a torch that should be handed from one actor to another".
This puts an end to what is arguably the best film rendition of Batman. The next writers and directors have some very big shoes to fill. Will they be able to make it work. Will they bring Batman into an Avengers style Justice League movie and how will this play over with True Fans.
