Christian Bale Rules out Justice League Appearance
Like George Clooney, Michael Keaton and Val Kilmer before him, Christian Bale is giving up the suit to make way for future generations of Bruce Wayne.
Known for his raspy-voiced version of the Caped Crusader in Christopher Nolan’s Batman Trilogy (from 2005’s Batman Begins to last year’s The Dark Knight Rises), Bale said he won’t appear as the character despite rumors that he’ll appear in a Justice League film.
The Warner Bros. film would have seen him teaming up with Superman, Wonder Woman and other heroes. Although the actor told Entertainment Weekly he was lucky that he and Nolan were able to pull together three Batman movies, he added, “That’s enough. Let’s not get greedy.”
“It’s a torch that should be handed from one actor to another,” he said. “So I enjoy looking forward to what somebody else will come up with.”
