Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

The quote is apparently from a friend who says 'he could probably make $50m for agreeing to 20 minutes work.' Somehow, this has become 'he's been offered $50m to return.'

That's how modern journalism works.

And I suspect there'd be a lot more than 20 minutes of work involved.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

The full article suggests also that Bale is as important to the Batman franchise as RDJ is to Iron Man. Now, I loved Bale's Batman and he was my first choice to play the role for a few years before BB. But Batman was a successful franchise before he came along and BB would probably have been as big a hit had they cast Jake Gylenhall, the second choice in the auditions.

By contrast, Iron Man was little known outside the comics and very unproven on the big screen. And that version of Tony Stark is arguably more infused with Downey's character than the comics' incarnation. I think Bale is easily the best screen Batman to date but I don't think he is as essential to the success of the character as Downey is to that of IM.

Bullsh*t
Emma Thomas unequivocally stated that the MoS sequel (Batman/Superman) will feature a brand-new actor playing Batman.

This whole article appears to be a fan boy fantasy or paid for by Bale's agent.

If Bale doesn't come back, it will only make the next movie that much better.

Sorry, but I'm not a fan.

I agree. I have a lot of problems with the Bale movies, but he is one of the big ones. The guy sucks. His "Batman voice" has been parodied to death for a reason. I don't think anyone could have made what the writers wrote anything approaching decent, but Bale certainly wasn't helping.

Re: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

I love the Nolan Batmovies, and thought that other than the voice Bale did a good job, but I don't see him coming back. They made it very clear that TDKR was the end of that version of Batman, and I don't really see them continuing that story or bringing Bale back for a different version of the character.

If they brought Bale back, wouldn't it be understood that it was supposed to be the same version of the character?
