Bale Says Goodbye To Batman

NYdailyNews has a short piece with a couple of cool quotes from Christan Bale about being finished with the role of Batman. Doesn’t sound like he’ll be playing Batman again sadly:

Bale, though, is glad that it did happen. He spent the last eight years as the Caped Crusader — and doesn’t regret a minute — but says he’s ready to hang up that cape for good.

“We need different rhythms in our life, don’t we, and to me it would be the wrong rhythm to jump into a franchise at this point,” he says. “For now, no, I’d be looking for new experiences.”

Bale is too polite to acknowledge what most moviegoers and fanboys would, that his take on Batman has long since surpassed predecessors like Adam West, Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer and George Clooney.

“I wasn’t a 12-year-old that gave a damn about comics,” he says. “I had never been someone into comic books, it just didn’t interest me. It wasn’t my thing.”
