On a related side note, Christian Bale also confirmed with an interview with Entertainment Weekly that he's NOT coming back as Batman on a potential Justice League film. Still, his epic run on all three Dark Knight films collaborating with Nolan was self-contained and enough, and he gives his blessing to pass the mantle of The Bat to someone else in a shared DC Movie Universe. For more on that story, read about it on the source post at EW and here.
