Bale Bails Out as Justice League’s Batman

It was pretty much taken for granted that Christian Bale wouldn’t be donning his Batsuit again for a Warner Bros. DC Comics Justice League movie. To add doubt to doubt Bale has now announced that he will definitely not be appearing in said movie. Not only that but both the director, Zack Snyder and screenwriter David S. Goyer have both confirmed that a rebooted Batman will be appearing in Justice League.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly he commented:

”I have no information, no knowledge about anything. I’ve literally not had a conversation with a living soul. I understand that they may be making a Justice League movie, that’s it. It’s a torch that should be handed from one actor to another. So I enjoy looking forward to what somebody else will come up with.”

So this brings us back to the question that has been on fans’ minds for a while. Will Joseph Gordon-Levitt be tapped to play the new Batman joining the Justice League. Bale is more than eager to find out all about who to take on the role commenting: “It’s a torch that should be handed from one actor to another. So I enjoy looking forward to what somebody else will come up with.”

Although Bale has made the odd mention of being open to another Batman film, when questioned if we would ever see Nolan and Bale heading back to Gotham City for a fourth film the actor said, “We were incredibly fortunate to get to make three [Batman films]. That’s enough. Let’s not get greedy.”
