Bale shoots down rumors

Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel” started up talk about a “Justice League” film. If it does happen, Christian Bale, who played Bruce Wayne/Batman in Christopher Nolan’s “Dark Knight” trilogy said he won’t be back.

”I have no information, no knowledge about anything,” he told EW.  “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.”

They could go with Joseph Gordon-Levitt, however.

No Batman for seven years?

Oh Warner Brothers. You’re no Marvel that’s for sure. The one thing we do know is Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel” hits theaters this year with Henry Cavill. WB wants a “Justice League of America” film but is waiting to see how that film does. And even if Superman does well, WB is rewriting the ENTIRE script. Oh then there’s the issue of Batman. No it’s not Christian Bale anymore and reports are that a JLA film would introduce a new Dark Knight instead of brining back Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Now, Batman on Film is reporting that a source is saying if Superman is successful, a solo Batman film may not come until AFTER the Superman trilogy. Ugh.
