INTERVIEW: Is Christian Bale In or Out of WB’s Justice League?

Well with all this talk about the JLA Movie it looks like someone over at IESB snagged a nice interview with Christian Bale. Bale says that he wasn't even asked to be in the new JLA movie, and from what I have been reading, and the news coming down the pipeline is that neither Routh or Bale or Welling for that matter is going to be in the JLA movie, and yes indeed it will be a CGI film.

INTERVIEW: Is Christian Bale In or Out of WB’s Justice League?

Earlier this week, the IESB broke the news that the WB Justice League film is coming Summer of 2009 with a first quarter 2008 production start date. Questions arose about Christian Bale’s potential involvement as the Dark Knight.

Today during the 3:10 to Yuma press junket the question on everyone’s lips?
Is Bale willing to put on the rubber suit once again for the upcoming JLA film?
Here’s the excerpt from an interview IESB’s Rachel Howard participated in and what Bale had to say:

Will Bale’s version of the Caped Crusader be part of Justice League of America? Bale says that he has not signed on to be part of the ensemble superhero pic.

Q: Are you doing Justice League after TDK?
Bale: No

IESB: Have you been approached for Justice League?
Bale: No

IESB: How would you feel about the studio recasting Batman for Justice League?
Bale: It’d be better if it doesn’t tread on the toes of what we’re doing, though I feel that it would be better if it comes out after Batman 3.

Can fans handle two Batmans on the big screen almost simultaneously? I honestly don’t know. Bale has really personified this character to the utmost…I can’t think of anyone else doing it justice after his portrayal.
Well, we’ll keep our bat-ears open and let you know as soon as we do!
UPDATE: There may be a very good reason why Bale and Routh are not doing Justice League, could it be a motion capture film?
