Since before Man of Steel was released and the speculation for a Justice League movie hit an all time high, many fans have been wondering if Christian Bale will reprise his role as Bruce Wayne/Batman in the ensemble film. We now have a direct answer from the man, and it’s not the one you wanted to hear.
“We were incredibly fortunate to get to make three [Batman films]. That’s enough. Let’s not get greedy,” Bale told EW. “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.”
