Christian Bale confirms he will not be playing Batman in the Justice League movie




We all generally get the idea that Christian Bale will probably not be returning to play Bruce Wayne in Warner Brothers upcoming Justice League movie. However, as fans, we all keep that beacon of hope that maybe, just maybe the rumours have been false, that maybe what others have said was possibly not true, just maybe everyone has got it wrong and Bale just might be returning in the Justice League movie.

Bale has said all along that the only way he would return as Batman is that if Nolan directed a fourth Dark Knight movie, but sadly Nolan has said that will not happen. So all eyes are on the Justice League, but unfortunately in an interview with EW this wee, Bale confirmed he will not be playing Batman in Justice League.

Firstly he talked about his time playing Batman:

“We were incredibly fortunate to get to make three [Batman films]. That’s enough. Let’s not get greedy. Chris [Nolan] always said he wanted to make it one film at a time. And we ended up sitting there looking at each other, saying ‘We’re about to make the third.’ We never really knew if we were going to get to be there, but if that was how it was going to be, this was where it should end as well.”

Then came the bad news which will crush everyone’s hopes of seeing him in Justice League: we knew it was coming, but now Bale has confirmed he won’t be back as Bruce Wayne for Warners Avengers style superhero epic:

”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.”

Whoever Warner Brothers decide on to play Batman in Justice League will have one hell of a job ahead of them if they want to follow on from Bale’s legacy.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
