Let’s not get greedy – that’s exactly what Christian Bale has to say about his involvement in the upcoming Justice League movie (read: NO Batman this time). But, wait, what about the upcoming part of the story? Maybe we’re wrong with that, too? Don’t shoot the messenger, I’m just guessing: if Batman is not on board, and if Superman (aka Henry Cavill) says that the film is not around the corner, then maybe… there’s no Justice League after all?
So, who the hell IS on board for Justice League? Who are the greatest heroes assembled to form the Justice League and combat a threat beyond each individual’s capabilities?
A few months ago, we shared some pretty cool rumors that included Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and The Flash (among others).
But now, thanks to Christian Bale and his interview with EW, we know that he has no information, no knowledge about anything.
Or, as he said:
I’ve literally not had a conversation with a living soul. I understand that they may be making a Justice League movie, that’s it. It’s a torch that should be handed from one actor to another. So I enjoy looking forward to what somebody else will come up with.
Bale also added:
We were incredibly fortunate to get to make three [Batman films]. That’s enough. Let’s not get greedy. Chris [Nolan] always said he wanted to make it one film at a time. And we ended up sitting there looking at each other, saying ‘We’re about to make the third.’ We never really knew if we were going to get to be there, but if that was how it was going to be, this was where it should end as well.
Meanwhile, our brand new Superman – Henry Cavill, thinks that the movie could be great if done correctly but also adds it is a very tough one to do because the DC comic heroes are all god-like in their power:
In this real world setting we’re telling our story in, it’s going to be tough to achieve that and it has to be done very delicately with a lot of thought. So, it won’t be right away, I hope it’s not anyway. It may take some time of building up other movies and other characters and introducing them together in one way or another. I think it would be great to do, but I don’t think it’s around the corner.
