Christian Bale Talks Batman

Total Film spent some time with Christian Bale last month.

This week – to celebrate the new Bale and Terminator Salvation-packed issue hitting shelves 30 April – has five exclusives from The Most In Demand Actor Right Now.

Today, he talks Heath Ledger’s Oscar win, The Dark Knight’s academy snub and the prospects for a third Bat-flick...

"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.

"I would like it if people say, 'You'll never make a good third movie.' I say, 'OK, let's make a third movie in that case, let's prove them wrong. But that's just me. 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!"

For Bale on Public Enemies, Batman 3 and, yep, that outburst check out every day for the rest of the week.

And then for plenty more where that came from, buy Issue 155 of Total Film, on sale 30 April.
