So have we really seen the last of Christian Bale in the suit? According to a recent interview with Christian this may not be the last time we get to see Bale’s Batman, so what does that mean for fans? Well, it means a lot of things; first it definitely means that we can put the rumor of Batman dying to rest. If Christian can come back for another movie then it wouldn’t make sense for him to die in The Dark Knight Rises. Christian said this about returning to Batman in a recent interview:
My understanding is that this is the last one. I think it’s appropriate, I think it’s going out at the right time. But…if Chris came to me with a script and said, ‘You know what? There is another story’ then I would love the challenge of making a fourth one work.
Christian was also asked about coming back as an older Batman and he had this to say about it:
That could be an interesting one, couldn’t it? Twenty years down the track…
Even if we have to wait a long time for the next great Nolan/Bale Batman movie, I think the fans will welcome them back with open arms. Christopher Nolan has taken these movies and made Batman a life like and respectable character for all of us and has made DC Comics a name that will float around dinner tables all over the world once this movie is out.
So what do you think? Do you think it’s time for Christian Bale to say goodbye to Batman forever and have someone else give it a shot? Or do you think this is the Batman we deserve, and the one we need right now? (Pardon the twist of the movie line) Leave a comment down below and tell us what you think.
