With Man of Steel now a worldwide box office hit, speculation of when a Justice League film will be made and who will be involved is running rampant. Many fans have been wondering if Christian Bale will reprise his role as Bruce Wayne/Batman in the ensemble film. In an interview with EW, the actor provided a definitive answer to Justice League fans out there, but it may not be the one they 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.”
”I have no information, no knowledge about anything. I’ve literally not had a conversation with a living soul. I understand that they may be making a Justice League movie, that’s it. 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.”
There’s been no official word about when a Justice League film might happen, but some sources say it could be as early as 2015. Man of Steel star Henry Cavill seems to think they should take their time and make it really worth it for the fans.
