Speaking with Total Film, Christian Bale has confirmed that he’s under contract to reprise his role as the Dark Knight in a third Batman film. He acknowledges he wouldn’t want to do a third Batman film without the right story but adds that in the end he has no choice, unlike Christopher Nolan who isn’t under contract.
“Will we do a third movie? It’s got to be the right story. You can’t make something like The Dark Knight and then come out with something disappointing,” he said. “The fact is, I have to! I’ve signed up! Chris doesn’t. So I’m in a bit of a fix if he says he doesn’t want to!”
He also states how delighted he was to see Heath Ledger win the Best Supporting Actor Oscar and for Ledger’s family to accept the award, adding also that he wasn’t surprised The Dark Knight didn’t win more Oscars.
“I’m not surprised by The Dark Knight not getting more Oscars though. I’m not really surprised by anything to do with awards. Hey listen, awards or not it’s a wonderful movie. Chris Nolan did such a fantastic job of it and you look back at the history of the Oscars – some of the best movies never got shit.”
