Christian Bale is one of the most popular actors who portrayed Batman / Bruce Wayne on the big screen. He played the detective superhero for the last time in 2012, completing The Dark Knight trilogy. Recent reports speculate that Bale could make a comeback as Batman in an upcoming DC Extended Universe (DECU) movie.
The Welsh-born star played Batman/Bruce Wayne across three films in Christopher Nolan’s “Dark Knight” trilogy: Batman Begins in 2005, The Dark Knight in 2008, and The Dark Knight Rises in 2012. The franchise’s last two films grossed over $1 billion at the worldwide box office.
Ahead of the Dark Knight Rises’ release, Bale opened up to Collider about whether he would miss wearing the Batman suit. “For all the discomfort and the heat and the sweat and the headaches and everything from it, when you sit back and watch the movie at the end of the day, you go: ‘Well, that’s f–king cool. I will miss that, I liked the good bit of rubber,’” he said at the time.
The Best Actor we have As a Batman is Christian Bale….. No One act like Chris…

“That’s enough, enough’s enough. We did our thing, it’s done. I got nothing else to offer it.” He clearly feels a strong connection to Nolan’s trilogy and looks like he wants to let others have their take on the character. No matter what, upcoming Batman performances will be quickly compared to Bale’s work, for better or for worse.
