Over a period of 7 years, Christopher Nolan created an impressive Batman trilogy. Almost four of the three films could have become. Batman actor Christian Bale knows exactly why it did not happen. In an interview, he revealed why he really got out of Batman. Star director Christopher Nolan created a cult series with The Dark Knight trilogy. The three films about Batman still have a very special place in the hearts of DC fans. Especially the second movie The Dark Knight is still regarded as one of the best superhero films ever. Almost the trilogy would have become a tetralogy. That it did not come to that, founded ex-Batman Christian Bale now in conversation with the Toronto Sun.
Batman Begins 2005 saw the start of the Dark Knight trilogy. At that time, the two successors The Dark Knight (2008) and The Dark Knight Rises (2012) were not a decided thing. Not only Nolan knew that, but also main actor Christian Bale. In the interview, the star actor reports, "When they came up to us and said, 'Do you want to do another movie?' It was fantastic, but we still said, 'That's it, we will not get another chance.' Then they came and said, 'OK, let's do a third.' "
But those responsible wanted to go one step further. With the idea of a fourth film, one approached Nolan and Bale. But Bale recalled the director's vision and then declined, "I said, 'No. We have to cling to Chris' dream, which was always to hopefully do a trilogy, let's not go too far and become negligent and one make fourth. '"
In the future, DC fans can not hope for a fourth installment of Nolan's series. Instead, we see the Dark Knight next in The Batman by Matt Reeves. The film with Robert Pattinson in the lead role starts on June 25, 2021 in the US in the cinema. What would you have thought about a fourth Batman movie with Christian Bale?
