Actually, maybe that should be like it or not, Christian Bale is doing Batman 3. In an interview with Total Film, the Dark Knight star confirmed he's contractually obligated to return for a third Batman movie - whether director Christopher Nolan returns or not. Of course if he had it his way, Bale, like most fans, would prefer Nolan to join him.
He tells the magazine, "I would like it if people say, 'You'll never make a good third movie.' I say, 'OK, let's make a third movie in that case, let's prove them wrong.' But that's just me. The fact is, I have to [make one]! I've signed up! Chris [Nolan] doesn't. So I'm in a bit of a fix if he says he doesn't want to!"
So are audiences after Nolan and Bale formed such a Dynamic Duo with their first two Batman movies. But Nolan or not, Bale maintains that to make a third movie right, it all comes down to the story: "It's got to be the right story. You can't make something like The Dark Knight and then come out with something disappointing."
What do you guys think? Would you want to see a third Batman movie from Bale if Nolan wasn't involved?
