Bale, who plays Batman again in The Dark Knight, said he is not, and we don’t really expect him to. He’ll probably stick with his current franchise with director Christopher Nolan.
That pretty much shoots the team movie in the foot from the start, as audiences could get confused by potentially two Batmen out at the same time. Remember JLA is being fast tracked for a summer 2009 release, and the third Nolan Batman movie could bow in 2010 or 2011. If Bale wanted to capitalize on the franchise, he’d agree to the League movie and still do the third Bat-flick, and still have plenty of time left in his career for the next deranged killer movie. But that’s just me.
With Batman up in the air at the moment, who do you want to see done the tights and stalk the night in the Justice League Movie?
