Default IF Christian Bale returns as Batman...

How do you explain it? Does he recover his fortune lost in the stock market scheme Bane pulled? Is JGL filling in as Batman or Nightwing, how is that going? Why does he come out of retirement? How much time in the film do you spend explaining all of this? What is your best storyline / fanfiction for this?

The why is easy. But it negates the whole Bruce arc from TDKR. If indeed he ever returned, he'd have retired and come back twice. Quite an inconsistent fella.

Maybe Bruce Wayne's true identity is Brett Favre.

This is my theory/what I'd like to see: Bruce is overseas, living life. The whole thing with Supes happens in MoS, and it inspires Bruce to take up the mantle of Batman again. He returns to Gotham in secret. He never agains assumes the identity of Bruce Wayne, who still remains "dead" but uses his resources to continue to act as Batman, thus not really having to worry about his secret identity.

JGL of course would be Robin, but he'd remain in Gotham while Batman would travel to Metropolis with "The Bat".

He makes it his mission to investigate Superman and whether or not he could be trusted.

That's how I envision it, and I know everyone would hate on it. But I think it'd be cool.

Batman disappears and comes back all of the time in the comics. This way, you ahve al older (37) already established Batman. Maybe while he was overseas, he continued to hone his skills and repair his body.

Agreed Christian Bale is to Batman like Hugh Jackman is to Wolverine or Robert Downey Jr. is to Iron Man. They are those Characters on film each of them have a major love and respect for that role. I don't see Warner Bros not wanted their only realistic Batman with their realistic Superman. Besides its not like Tobey Maguire vs. Andrew Garfield. No true Fan will except another actor taking over that role anytime soon. Spider-Man trilogy based off of 60's The Amazing Spider-Man based off of Ultimates. Different tone and feel. But The Dark Knight with the exception of alittle camp in the 60s has always been vengeance the night he has always been the GOD DAMN BATMAN and with the exception of some lackluster story elements Christian Bale will remain the definitive actor who was the perfect Bruce Wayne and the perfect Batman. IN BALE I TRUST!!!

Sort of like how Christopher Reeves is Superman? I don't think it works. To some people Adam West is Batman. There have been enough different actors play Batman over the years, that it is more like Superman than Ironman. I mean, has anyone else ever done a live Ironman. I can think of Alyn, Reeve, Reeves, Cain and Routh as having played Superman, Welling was Clark Kent, and I probably am forgetting someone, and am clearly ignoring all those who voice-acted the role. I think Batman is the same way.

I was referring to the generation, Christian Bale is Batman. It's not like its been 20 years or we had a tv or crappy movie version recently. Batman does not need a reset this early after his last solo. And I was generalizing when i said the average fan myself included doesn't want another actor.

In short they might as well wipe their ass with the script before they waste the film. Cause this movie will be nothing short of ****** without this generations Dark Knight.

I'd like for this to happen, but I don't even thinks it's even close to plausible. Maybe don't keep those hopes up too much, okay?

I honestly think that it's a toss up. Bale could return and could not, neither outcome would surprise me. On the surface he doesn't seem like the type to want to play the same role 4 or 5 times though. And lets not forget that he'd be working with a completely different director.

If Bale signs on, he has to give up years of his career for one role .
I dont think there is enough money in the world to get him to do that .

That's not true at all. Since TDKR Bale has filmed 2 back to back movies wih Terrence Malick, "Out Of The Furnace" with the director from Crazy Heart and "American Hustle" by David O' Russell (The Fighter, Silver Linings Playbook). Not to mention he shoots Ridley Scott's "Exodus" soon, where he plays Moses.

These are all massive roles, movies that will get some kind of Oscar attention. He can squeeze in a Batman vs Superman shoot in 2014 then over the next couple of years (or more) he can do whatever the hell he wants once again. This is a guy who has a family, he gets to pick his own films based on passion not driven by money anymore. He may agree to this because he's offered 50 million, but he doesn't have to take it. He'll do it if it's exciting to him and we all know he loves the Batman character.

He plays a 39 year old in TDKR. I imagine he'd be in his early 40s if he came back, which is perfect for the 'veteran batman" age.

People are responding so it's fine, and we're only talking about this because apparently Bale is back in the loop again at WB, so it's not for nothing.

My take is that they are planning on him not returning. That is not to say that WB does not want him to return, just that they are not counting on it. I mean if he was guaranteed to return, they would tell us. Whether he will return is harder to say. Probably not, but it is too soon to be sure.

Don't get me wrong im not deluding myself, he may not come back. All im saying is I have no faith in the film without him. And I believe Warner Bros will be making a massive mistake by not in the very least pursuing him to return. Like I stated earlier it's not like a different version of a character Batman has always been mostly consistent. In my humble opinion I won't but I don't believe other true fans will except a recast so soon. It would be like casting Shia Labeouf as Iron Man it just isn't right.

He won't becoming back anyway

I still don't get why Nolan felt he had to end the series, why couldn't it have been a trilogy with Batman standing tall at the end? It stil could have been the lat film for that cast. But a reboot could have just carried on, like the Bond films have other the years.
