Christian Bale: The Dark Knight fourth film?

#1 Edited by TheTimShow (109 posts) - - Show Bio

Wouldn't it be cool if it was possible after the closing of the series with The Dark Knight Rises to make a fourth movie about 15 years from now? Christian Bale could get back into the cape and cowl for a movie title "The Dark Knight Returns" and it could feature a plot BASED on the happenings of Frank Miller's story minus Two Face and Robin. I think it would be interesting to have a 55 year old Batman in the movie, choosing to once again fight crime and come out of retirement when Gotham is in dire need. Harrison Ford came back for a fourth Indiana Jones film, why could Christian Bale? I'll leave it at that.

Nolan himself said he's done. So no, it wouldn't be.

Nolan is laughing right now. Wouldn't Batman be like 60? I could just imagine him with a walker.

No, like all of the above. Besides, if there's going to be a future Batman story on screen, it should be Batman Beyond, hands down.

Nolan said he wouldnt make the third one and made it.

Also he said if there is a story he likes he will direct the movie, but to be honest, at this point it would be in the future like in 15 years or something like that.

At this point he is pretty much done.

Also, as much as people loves The Dark Knight Returns i dont think it would make an awesome movie, people forget his weak points and the fact that if has Bale as Batman it would need Heath as the Joker, since there is no way to bring back dead people, there is no way to make the movie.
