Bale talks Bats 3

I think it's fair to say that there'll be some kind of nerd mob that descends on Christian Bale or Chris Nolan's homes if either of them decide not to make a third BATMAN film. It would be like the March on Rome, except with less fascism and more virginity. Somewhat curiously, Bale had the following to say about a third:

So do you think there will be a part 3 of Batman?
Um, look, let's wait and see...

Or, I guess it'd be part 7.
No, no, no, no, no. [Smiling] Part 3 is what I'd consider it, yeah, I don't say part 7. Batman begins — that was the beginning there, with all due respect to the others. We are re-creating this. You know, obviously the decision is out of my hands. I would, knowing the Dark Knight story, I would like very much to complete a trilogy. And I think that knowing the story of The Dark Knight, it leaves you anticipating something that really can get very, very interesting for a third. Now, the question would be: Is Chris going to be doing it? Because to me I find it tricky to imagine working on it without it being a collaboration with Chris.

Wait, wait, what? Let's wait and see? No, no, there's gonna be another BATMAN film from these guys, surely. That is the foundation that my life is built on right now. I don't know if these words are comforting or ominous, but it looks like he - so long as Nolan is back - wants to do another. I guess the only hurdle might be if, you know, the film doesn't make enough money. Because that is likely.
Extra Tidbit: The character of Batman was actually conceived when Bob Kane accidentally stood on a bat late one night, and it made a noise that he thought sounded like 'save... gotham...' No, I totally made that up. I'm out of Batman-related tidbits.
