I normally don’t like to post rumours on this blog, unless they come from at least a couple of trustworthy sources. However, I found an article on The Herald’s Sun website that I had to show you all.
Nolan and Bale have a strong working relationship, having teamed up on both Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, as well as the period-drama The Prestige. Bale has said that he would be interested in returning to the Batman series provided Nolan was involved and the story was interesting.
The Herald Sun notes that Worthington‘s star is on the rise, with lead roles in the upcoming films Terminator: Salvation and Avatar. Yes, good point. They also argue that Bale’s profile has been damaged since the leak of his outburst on the set of Terminator. Again, kind of true.
But who honestly think Warner Bros would fire one of the best actors of the last decade (who also just carried their last film to a billion dollar gross) from their tentpole franchise?
Well, no one. There are no sources in the article – all speculation. So in conclusion, Worthington will not replace Bale as Batman. That is all.
