Its been common Knowledge for a while now that The Dark Knight Rises will Be Christopher Nolan & Christan Bales last movie in the franchise but recently it seems Bale maybe having a change of heart on the matter. It seems Bale has got into that Actor – director bond where a director likes to pick the same few actors for all there movies and that actor usually obliges as they understand as well respect what that directors way of thinking, it can be a bit of a comfort zone for many but there is always going to be a day when people may need to move on to pastures new. Christan Bale seems to that relationship with Nolan as Matt Damon has with Paul Greengrass on the Bourne franchise they only trust each other for there franchises and a another director or even actor to play lead would destroy that bond.
Speaking to Movieweb recently Christan Bale let them know his feelings about a fourth installment of the Batman franchise:
“All I know is the likelihood that this will be the last one. Well, I wouldn’t say definitely. If Chris goes, “Hey, I’ve got another story I think could be interesting,” then yeah, great, I’d go do that. I always assumed it would be three, but I could be wrong. I don’t know if there’s something wrong with me, but I don’t feel any pressure.”
With the recent confirmation of Tom Hardy to play Bane, Bale gave his thoughts on Hardy:
“[Tom Hardy] seems like he’s balls-out, doesn’t he? Like he really goes for it. He looked like a guy that was happy to go to extremes, to really push it. Looks like he could go the distance…”
I totally agree with Bale here since Bronson Tom Hardy has proved himself as a actor he will do anything to get a particular role and will take his research, training to the maximum to make sure he is authentic when he plays that role, if Lisbeth Salander was actually replace by an male equivelent dont you think Hardy would be a great choice to be Salander if the genders where reversed? We havent even been 4 weeks into 2011 and 2012 movie line up is hotting up already, we can say Hardy will have to do a fair bit of time at the gym with the weights to beef himself up to close (or match) Banes pyschical stature like Hugh Jackman with Wolverine, so whats your thoughts on Batman 4 or even Batman 3? Do you think Christan Bale should be Batman for a fourth time or can you think of anyone else?
