We reported on the 12th that the Man of Steel sequel was in the works along with plans for a Justice League movie, which begs the question, will Christian Bale come back as Batman? According to writer, David S. Goyer, we shouldn’t get our hopes up.
In an interview with Hey U Guys, David S. Goyer said that we would most likely see a new Batman rather than Christian Bale. Here’s the excerpt.
It would be disingenuous to say Warner Bros doesn’t hope that this would be the starting point for a shared universe. And Zack has said that Bruce Wayne exists in this universe. It would be a different Bruce Wayne from Chris’ [Nolan] Dark Knight trilogy, and it would be disingenuous to say that Zack and I haven’t had various conversations on set, around ‘what if’ and ‘moving forward’.
I have to admit that I would have liked to see Christian Bale and Michael Caine even in a Justice League movie but I’m faithful that they’ll find the perfect Batman for the job.
We’ll keep you posted on Justice League directed by Zack Snyder and written by David S. Goyer.
