Christian Bale: Done Playing Batman?

Is Christian Bale about to hang up his Batman cape for good?

“I wrapped [up The Dark Knight Rises] a few days ago so that will be the last time I’m taking that cowl off,” the 37-year-old actor said during a recent interview with the Philippine Daily Inquirer.

“I believe that the whole production wrapped yesterday, so it’s all done. Everything’s finished. It’s me and [director] Chris Nolan – that will be the end of that Batman era,” Christian added.

ARE YOU SAD to hear Christian Bale may no longer be playing Batman after The Dark Knight Rises?

    very sad this will be the last Batman with Christian Bale and Christopher Nolan, they were the absolute best !!

  • ha ha

    :(

  • Alaia

    Of course it will, this is not news. Nolan always said this would be the last.

  • huh?

    big deal. i won’t miss that stupid voice you used for batman. or the stupid scripts. batman 89/ batman returns >>>>>>>>>>>> nolan’s batman

  • BEAN

    WHY!!!!!!!??? Boooo that sucks… But hey I wouldn’t mind seeing Henry Cavill as Batman. He’s pretty fine too.

  • seila

    i’d never like him as batman. we’ll see who will be chosen for the next movie

  • huh?

    why yall so butthurt? can’t handle the truth?

  • Frozoid

    I love him, but he must get that moie next to his eye removed. It’s getting bigger.

    It’s a shame for I genuinely feel Nolan did the character justice. I can see Nolan doing another Batman if he had to motivation, story, and plot. Never say NEVER guys – just have hope but also be happy with what is.

  • hello

    Man! Christian and Nolan did a really good job with the Batman series. This Sucks! If they ever do another Batman and Nolan and Bale aren’t in it…. It won’t be the same. :(

    Bates and Nolan were great but in a few years it will get picked up again. Batman is a character that can never die.

    I think I read that this is the last for Nolan at least. Bale does an amazing job at any character he plays and Batman’s no exception. I loved these movies! Sad to hear it ending but it’s probably for the best. You don’t want to drag out a good thing.

    Duh, we’ve all known that for ages. Nolan wasn’t even sure he’d return for a third installment and he only did to really finish the story and give the fans and the characters an ending. Christian also said that he wouldn’t be returning for any Batman movies unless they were by Nolan, and since there won’t be any more of those, there won’t be more Bale as Batman.

  • hello

    Nolan and Bale did an amazing job with Batman. This Sucks! If they ever try to do another one and Nolan and Bale aren’t in it… It won’t be the same. :(

    I wish he would do at least one romantic comedy. He is a great actor

  • Mejay

    Bale and Nolan have been saying this for years, not really a shock.

  • jaspisgirl

    sure he will get another job,so i can stop care about this.he can do better than batman and batman can do better than him .so search for better roles,i know he can, i mean, look at rescue dawn and the prestige…. these are good movies!!!!!
