It appears that three is enough for actor Christian Bale.
The "Dark Knight" actor told Entertainment Weekly that he won't be reprising his role as Batman in any new projects. This revelation comes after Bale was rumored to be in talks to join the cast of a possible "Justice League" film, as reported earlier by Digital Spy.
The film's screenwriter, David S. Goyer, denied that Bale would be participating. And the actor himself now wants to quiet any remaining speculation that he might once again wear the Batsuit.
"We were incredibly fortunate to get to make three [Batman films]," Bale told EW. "That's enough. Let's not get greedy.
"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 to be there, but if that was how it was going to be, this was where it should end as well."
Bale added that he has not participated in any talks on a Justice League project and and has "no information" or "knowledge about anything" regarding the film.
"I've literally not had a conversation with a living soul. I understand that they may be making a Justice League movie, that's it."
Bale says he is now ready to see a new actor take on the role he brought to life for three successful films. His last film in the "Dark Knight" trilogy, "The Dark Knight Rises," has grossed a total exceeding $1.084 billion worldwide.
"It's a torch that should be handed from one actor to another. So I enjoy looking forward to what somebody else will come up with."
