[India], Nov 26 (ANI): The Dark Knight may not rise with Christian Bale playing the role of The Caped Crusader anymore!
In a news that is sure to break the hearts of millions of fans of the Batman franchise, Hollywood actor Christian Bale, who played Batman in Christopher Nolan's 'The Dark Knight Trilogy', on Sunday said that he is done with the role and is not planning a comeback in the series.
Bale, who attended the world premiere of upcoming Hollywood movie 'Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle' in Mumbai made this statement while replying to a question posed to him by a scribe.
On being categorically asked as to whether he was planning to make a comeback in DC's Extended Universe "No. No we are done. No. We, Christian and I three movies that's plenty."
DC Extended Universe (DCEU) is the popular referral for the collection of films based on characters that appear in the publication by the DC comics.
Christian Bale who plays the voice cast of Bagheera the panther in the upcoming Hollywood movie 'Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle', also talked about his association with the movie.
He said, "I love the book and I love the Disney version, the animated version you know, bare necessities and the recent ones too. You don't have to make a choice between loving that one or this one. It's a great example of one resource material given a very different interpretation. This one is absolutely beautiful and instead of being so over fussy fairytale, this is more the fantasy. The (fantasy that) pretty much all of us have, of running wild wilder wolves, of howling at the moon, of truly being free."
Bale also had a very diplomatic reply to the question of debuting in Bollywood, as he said, "Certainly, I go where the project interests me. But in honesty, when I do work, I love it but I also not like working all the time. I also do not watch movies at this time of life. "
Talking of India, he said, "We have a lovely time. I was here when we shot for Dark Knight Rises in Jaipur. It's a fascinating country. I have visited Delhi and Agra before coming to Mumbai on this trip." (ANI)
