Was Christian Bale Offered $50 Million To Reprise Role Of Batman?
If you think Christian Bale is done playing the iconic role of Batman think again. It is being reported by Latino-Reviews that the former man who wore the cape and cowl is being pursed to play the Gotham vigilante one more time. Only a few weeks after the groundbreaking news that Batman would finally appear in a Superman film it looks like Warner Brothers is looking for Christian Bale to reprise his role.
According to the publisher of “Beyond Batman: The Unauthorized True Story of Christian Bale and His Dark Knight Dilemma” the actor is being offered Robert Downey Jr. money. It is being rumored that Christian Bale was offered somewhere in the realm of $50 Million to appear in the upcoming Justice League movie.
This all seems to make perfect sense since last week Warner Brothers stated that they wanted a Bruce Wayne that was in his 40s. Christian Bale turns 40 real soon and seems to be the perfect candidate to please both fans and critics alike. With the final Dark Knight Film grossing well over $1 billion in revenue it seems like Bale would be the ideal choice.
This at the moment is all smoke and mirrors for nothing has been confirmed. This could be just a hoax to help sell books or it could be a fan boys dream come true, only time will tell. Would you like to see Christian Bale come back as the cap crusader? Should WB pay Bale $50 million? If it were up to me, I’d pay Christian Bale whatever he wanted.
