Yeah, it's silly to think it'll be in the same universe as the trilogy. That anyone is even considering it surprises me.
I am completely fine with using Bale again for this - in fact, it would be a crime not to.
All I wanna see is a kick-ass new suit for him to wear.
It'll be fun to get a wiser Bale-Batman with more prep-time moments. I can't wait to see his personality play against Cavill's Superman.
