Justice League’s Christian Bale Batman rumour debunked

“If Christian Bale is coming back for Justice League, it’s news to Warner Bros” says an insider

It’s a bad week for bullshit, with not only Joss Whedon pouring water on the strangely persistent Planet Hulk movie rumours, but now the blatantly daft Christian Bale-in-Justice League movie rumour has been kiboshed.

“If Bale is coming back and David S Goyer is penning, it’s news to Warner Bros,” a source told Comic Book Movie. “Fans’ enthusiasm for more movies will be rewarded once Man Of Steel comes out.”

While this source is as nameless and unverifiable as whoever proposed that Bale would be donning the batsuit for the DC comics team-up, it seems far more likely – the guy didn’t even want to be in the same film as Robin, so why he would change his mind for Ryan Reynolds’ Green Lantern is baffling.

Pick up The Dark Knight Rises on Blu-ray for £14.99 and DVD for £9.99 from Amazon.co.uk.
