The Batman that we have been seeing throughout the past 7 years will be no more. Christian Bale has turned down an offer to play batman in DC Comics upcoming Justice League movie. David Goyer, the screenwriter for the film has confirmed that the Batman will be played by another person other than Bale.
Bale has been hinting that he would not return to Batman unless Christopher Nolan decided to produce a 4th movie for the latest Batman trilogy. Also Nolan has made it clear he has no intention of producing anymore Dark Knight films after the last one Dark Knight Rises (2012).
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly Bale has said that he has not spoken with anyone about being Batman in the upcoming Justice League film but isn’t upset about passing the role on to someone new. “It’s a torch that should be handed from one actor to another. So I enjoy looking forward to what somebody else will come up with.”
