A moment of silence.
Some more silence.
Christian Bale has official declined from continuing his reign as the caped crusader, the dark knight, the best there ever was… Batman.
While breaking hearts world wide, Bale stated:
We were incredibly fortunate to get to make three [Batman films]. That’s enough. Let’s not get greedy. Chris (Nolan)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. I have no information, no knowledge about anything. I’ve literally not had a conversation with a living soul. I understand that they may be making a Justice Leaguemovie, 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. –movieweb
Okay, so the title is a bit dramatic, but that’s the best we could do after scraping ourselves off the floor to write this article… a day late.
All in all, we are perfectly NOT okay with this, but we’ll just have to take this one day at a time and move on.
It’s probably too soon, but we’ve been thinking about the recasting of the caped crusader for while. Either way, check this.
