Ac­tor will Bale out

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - MOVIES -

CHRIS­TIAN Bale has ruled out spec­u­la­tion he will reprise his role as Bat­man for the up­com­ing Jus­tice League su­per­hero movie. The Welsh ac­tor pre­vi­ously in­sisted he would only con­sider don­ning the Bat­suit again if di­rec­tor Christopher Nolan wanted to make a fol­low-up to last year’s The Dark Knight Rises, the third in­stal­ment in their tril­ogy. As plans for the DC Comics su­per­hero ad­ven­ture take shape, the ac­tor says he will not be in­volved. ‘‘We were in­cred­i­bly for­tu­nate to get to make three ( Bat­man films). That’s enough. Let’s not get greedy,’’ Bale says. In­stead, Bale is keen to see an­other star step into his shoes and tackle the ‘‘Caped Crusader’’ for a new gen­er­a­tion of fans. ‘‘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,’’ he says. The long-de­layed Jus­tice League film will bring to­gether Bat­man, Su­per­man, Green Lantern, Won­der Woman and The Flash in the same way box of­fice block­buster The Avengers united the stars of the ri­val Mar­vel fran­chise to save the world. The movie adap­ta­tion of the pop­u­lar comic book se­ries is slated to hit movie theatres in 2015. Cast­ing de­tails have yet to be an­nounced, al­though Man of Steel star Henry Cav­ill is ex­pected to reprise his role as Su­per­man for the film.
