Christian “I hate money and Huge Oscar Worthy Bankable Films” Bale, has announced Dark Knight Rises is going to be the last time he gets to step into the boots of The Batman.
MTV was one of the first sites to get this opportunity …Unless Christopher Nolan has something to say about it, but he keeps churning out a batman movie every 4 years, Bale is bound to outgrow Bruce Wayne. Plus it seems even Bale himself hasn’t read the script. Read Bale’s quotes and more after the jump.
I believe, unless Chris [Nolan] says different, this will be the last time I’m playing Batman. Until Chris tells me, I don’t believe it, It’s gotta be from his mouth, or else I don’t really know. Chris will let me know what I need to know when I need to know it. I probably know a little bit more than some other people out there, but I think most people would be surprised at how little I do know. It just hasn’t been necessary yet. I know he’ll give me plenty of time to prepare for whatever I need to, and I’ll discover it. He’s a pretty damn good filmmaker. I trust that he’s going to come up with something wonderful.
Whooo! You’re so enigmatic Mr. Nolan! Christian Bale is basically saying, they haven’t talked past Rises. But I’m willing to bet dollars to donuts that if 3 is as well received as Dark Knight, and with Heath Ledger’s turn as the Oscar winning Joker, Bale would be a daft fuckface to leave this franchise.
And I believe that no. Bale will not leave the franchise, if Nolan Signs on for number 4.
