Christian Bale is Not Returning as Batman

By AMC July 2, 2013

Zack Snyder's "Man of Steel" has already grossed $500 million worldwide and counting. Fanboys and fangirls alike knew that a potential "Justice League" movie relied on the success of the last son of Krypton film. So by monetary standards, our beloved D.C. superhero lineup should be coming to fruition sooner than later. But what actors would compose the famous ensemble?

It would make sense for Henry Cavill to reprise his role as Superman, based on the positive reactions of him in that role. Will Ryan Reynolds return as Hal Jordan/Green Lantern? The movie was knocked but most blame the script and direction and not Reynolds. The next question that everyone asks, is if there is any hope that Christian Bale will return as Batman. He has told various outlets that no, he will not be returning. Now that actor has spoken out again, perhaps the final nail in our coffin of hope?

"We were incredibly fortunate to get to make three [Batman films]," Bale said. "That's enough. Let's not get greedy. Chris 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."

When asked about possibly appearing in "Justice League", since we humble fans apparently don't know how to let it go, Bale said the following:

"I have no information, no knowledge about anything," the actor said. "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. [Batman] is a torch that should be handed from one actor to another. So I enjoy looking forward to what somebody else will come up with."

Well there you have it folks. Perhaps it's time to finally move on and envision who we'd like to see Bale pass the torch to.

So who do you think should play the next Batman? Let us know in the comments section below!
