Christian Bale says this is probably his last turn as Batman
Yes, we all might want Christian Bale and Chris Nolan to keep making Batman movies until the world ends, but they have to move on some time, and Bale seems to think THE DARK KNIGHT RISES will be it for the duo.
Speaking to Total Film, he explains what he currently knows about the franchise and his role in it.
I believe, unless Chris [Nolan] says different, this will be the last time I’m playing Batman.
And might he actually say different?
Until Chris tells me, I don’t believe it, It’s gotta be from his mouth, or else I don’t really know.
So it seems that Nolan is indicating this is the last go for him as well, but if he says "jump" Bale will say "off what building?"
I'm fine if RISES really is the grand finale. They can't keep making Batman movies forever, as much as we enjoy them, and there's a whole host of creative projects out there each could be tackling.
I've thought Bale has been a pretty good Bruce Wayne, as he's at his Patrick Bateman smug best when he needs to be, but his Batman voice is getting exponentially more ridiculous as time goes on, to the point where it can take you out of the moment at times. Cue to Bale Batman voice apologists...
