Christian Bale Rules Out Batman Return
Dark Knight star says he has no plans to join Justice League line-up...
The Dark Knight actor was rumoured to be in talks with a view to joining a movie adaptation of the DC Comics ensemble.
But having completed the Dark Knight trilogy directed by Christopher Nolan, Bale says he has no plans to return as the Caped Crusader.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, the 39-year-old said: "We were incredibly fortunate to get to make three [Batman films]. That's enough. Let's not get greedy."
He added: "Chris [Nolan] always said he wanted to make it one film at a time. And we ended up sitting there looking at each other, saying, 'We're about to make the third'.
"We never really knew if we were going to get there, but if that was how it was going to be, this was where it should end as well."
Should the Justice League movie feature Batman as was suggested back in January, that leaves the role open for another actor to don the black cape.
Both Bale and Nolan insisted they would support any future Batman movie reboots.
