Christian Bale says this is probably his last turn as Batman

Nov. 23, 2010by:

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...

Extra Tidbit: What established franchise would you like to see Nolan take on, if any?

ON ONE HAND ...

... I'd love to see more Bale/Nolan Batman movies, on the other I can see Nolan is getting tired of Batman franchise. Rises has misfortune in the term of Ledger's death, so Joker is unusable, and I don't expect it to overtop TDK, even though it will definitely be a very good movie at least. But one other interesting thing comes to mind - imagine Bale playing Millar's Nemesis and Eckhart as Morrow ....

I always thought that Batman would sound different than Bruce Way, but I agree Bale gets a little too angry with it. Sure, Bats should sound scary, but not in that I'm going to hide in your children's closetand eat them later kind of scary.

Fizzle?

Am I the only one that sees another Spider-Man 3 type film coming??? There's no way DKR can live up to the hype and levels in people's minds of TDK. Nolanites will autmatically love anything he shoots but no Ledger and following a classic is one crazy ass task.

Would people get off the effing voice? At least it sounds different than Bruce's voice. I always wondered as a kid why the hell someone like Gordon could figure that out. And so much for Bale saying hed be Batman as many times as possible

Bond

is the one that makes the most sense for Nolan to direct and co-write with his brother. Based on Inception, he loves Bond movies and that style of crime thriller. I really can't see him jumping into another franchise. I think Nolan will do a string of more original films after TDKR, probably an adaptation of a book that's never been on screen before first, then another original screenplay like Inception.

Am I the only one thinking, "Well duh", in regards to this story. Yeah, Bale will be back if Nolan decides to do another and won't if he decides not to. Not really much of a story. As far as a franchise I'd like to see Nolan take on, what about the Uncharted series. Nolan already loves practical effects and real locations and those things are essential for an adventure series like Uncharted. Nolan does do a bit more serious stuff but maybe working an a film like Uncharted will loosen him up. I

I love the Batman voice 'Swear to me!' - I try and say it and I sound like a kitten.

(sarcastically) I hope they hurry up and finish 'Rises' so they can reboot this already. I heard they already hired and fired Sam Raimi for the next three.

Star Trek

I would love Nolan's take on Star Trek so he could restore it to it's former glory and rid us of swollen tongue/hands Kirk, Willy-Wonka & Ewoks Scotty, and convenient coincidences. Tired of having Trek films that cater to the LCD.

Bring on the thumbs down.

I'd really like to see him take on The Next Generation. And that being said I'd really like to see him work with Patrick Stewart( not on a TNG reboot, then again who else could fill those shoes?) I'd really like to see him fit somehow in to a inception storyline. But yeah I think Nolan + Borg would = a blown load.

Cycle the Batman franchise ala Bond

I agree that Batman could and should be treated like Bond. i honestly didn't have a problem with the different Batmans in the Burton/Schumacher era and if not for the clusterfuck that was Batman & Robin, I still would have been okay with a constant changing of the guard.
I wouldn't be opposed to someone doing a hybrid-version of Nolan's Batman and Burton's batman films. Nolan makes big claims and ideas for his films but I never quite feel the pay off in how he and his cast sell his ideas. As

As much of a breath of fresh air as Begins and TDK were, I, too, am kinda sorta ready for a new take on the material. And I agree with others- Bale makes a very good Bruce Wayne, a pretty shitty Batman.
I honestly can't wait to see who directs a Batman film next and I'm okay with re-casting if we wait a respectful amount of time (7+ years, IMO) to reboot the whole thing including characters.

I'd prefer Nolan to work on original material

but if there was one franchise I'd like him to work on it would be Terminator. Imagine if Bale could talk him into doing a better sequel like Jackman did with Aronofsky for Wolverine. Nolan working with time travel elements and some epic man vs. machine battles would be awesome.

I would be very happy if the series ended with the 3rd film. As much as I love Nolan's batman movies, it's time for him and Bale to go out on a high and move on to other projects. Nolan has such a wonderful mind and I'd hate to be missing out on his original projects while he's busy portraying his take on someone else's franchise.

seems like WB wants to rest the movie franchise and do something on TV anyway. and i thought the Batman voice was better in TDK than Begins. (i love the smugness of Tassi's post there).

I loved Nolan's take on Batman, and Bale as the hero, but if this is the end of the franchise with the upcoming movie, i feel a bit unsatisfied because they are leaving out big old Batman stories such as the "Hush" ark, the "Batman: Nightfall", the "The Long Halloween", the "The Dark Victory" (although they used some elements from the last two ones). And there plenty more such the current mini series "Batman: Streets Of Gotham" by Paul Dini and Dustin Gyuen. If there is going to be another

Plus an actual comic writer for the script.

AFTER NOLAN AND BALE...

I'd like to see another Directors take on it like maybe David Fincher, not a reboot or hard and fast sequel to Nolans movies but pick it up a few years down the road and acknowledge Batmans had a past but don't specificly tie it into Nolans movies and let it stand on it's own. It should be a fresh new take on the material with a new cast and Director, with a whole new cast we could possibly see a return of The Joker and maybe next time he could have Harley Quinn with him. I'm tired of

I'm tired of franchises taking the easy way out and just rebooting everything, the comics give us differant writers and artist interpretations all the time while still progressing the story forward and thats how the movies should approach it as well.

I doubt Nolan would do a fourth Batman film. Just doesn't seem like his style. Let this franchise die gracefully and on top, as the highest-grossing most critically-acclaimed super hero series ever.

As for Bale, no one has been or ever will be a better Batman. Period. And his voice is awesome.

I can understand not-hating it, but "awesome"?

I'm not nearly as harsh as a lot of people out there, but it has broken my immersion at several points. There's also the fact that it's just not appropriate at all. If my memory serves me, his Batman voice is supposed to be something of an "angered whisper", not a someone roid-raging.

Nolan has only made two original films; I enjoy anything Nolan does, but other than Memento and Inception (and Following as well, but few have seen that film), everything else has been either a remake (Inception), a comic book adaptation (Batman Begins), a sequel (The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises), or a book adaptation (The Prestige, though Nolan did revamp the structure and made it his own). Even Memento was based on an idea his brother developed and made into a short story. I would

Again, I enjoy his films, but he has made a career out of adaptations.

I think nolan should try his luck with revamping a game franchise. There are a lot of good games with great stories that would make great movies. Let batman finally hang up the cape and cowl for a while.

I think we all just kind of figured this. As much as I love this franchise too I hope Batman continues on the big screen in other adaptations. I know Snyder really wanted to do The Dark Knight Returns when Nolan was finished with his films. Since they are working together on Superman, maybe Nolan can produce a Snyder directed TDKReturns. To me that would be an epic movie and would potentially be able to see Hamm as Superman.

Ending on a trilogy works for me, as for what I'd personally like to see Nolan do? Predictable though this is I'd like him to do a Bond movie. He said Inception was kinda like the Bond movies of old with the exotic locations and I think he could make a really cool story. Doubt it'll happen but one can dream.

that's cool but

"this is the last one" has been used as a sales tool before. Reminds me of Jay-Z's retirement. Joaquim Phoenix's retirement. Freddy's Dead: the Final Nightmare. I'm sure there's more examples...

Joaquin Phoenix's retirement was a hoax designed to make a "documentary", similar to what Sasha Baron Cohen does with Borat and Bruno. He never intended to retire, just sell a movie. And I don't see Nolan making another Batman; Bale and Nolan are a package deal.

until Joaquim said it was a hoax no one knew it was a hoax. including yourself.

as time passes people find different inspirations to return them to their greatest work. you can thumb me down but you cant prove me wrong. not with Nolan and or Bale still among the living.

Look how long it took to get the 2nd star wars trilogy, the new indiana jones.

let's revisit this thread in 15 years

right. kinda figured there'd be only 3 films. it'll be bittersweet to see an ending to the 3 best comic book movies ever made.

Yeah, this isn't all too surprising. Here's hoping TDKR sends Nolan and Bale off on a high note.

The Dark Knight Rises will be the last Batman movie for Bale and Nolan. There is no way that they "push" a fourth movie. Since this is the last one, they should go out with everything they got in "the tank". As for Bale, he is the 2nd best Batman behind Keaton. Even though Bale is in the better Batman movies. As for the voice, I have no problem with it.

Here's to hoping everything goes well and hopin for a great ending to our Dark Knight.

You are pretty easy to predict on your talkbacks, always praising every movie, actor etc.. This is the first time you have actually stumped me with the Keaton is the better Batman. I so thought you would have Bale first on your list.

Not surprising. I respect their creative decisions.
