For many, the Batman trilogy directed by Christopher Nolan and starring Christian Bale will always be the best film version of the DC watchman. The director of Origin was placed behind the cameras in Batman Begins (2005), The Dark Knight (2008) and The Dark Knight. The legend is reborn (2012) and, after three movies, some fans of the character expected to witness a fourth installment. It was never like this. ?The reason? Bale himself, in charge of giving life to Bruce Wayne during that saga, has explained it recently.

"We knew we had to reinvent it. Literally, there were people who laughed when I told them we were doing a new type of Batman," the actor begins. "I think the reason it worked was, first and foremost, Chris's version. But we were never arrogant to assume we had one more chance after every movie. That's something Chris always talked about. He said: "That's all. We're going to make another movie. It's all we have." Then, he came and said, "Do you want to do another one?" It was fantastic, but we kept saying, "This is it. We're not going to have another chance." "Then they would come back and say." Ok. We're going to do a third. "Chris always told me that if we were lucky enough to do three, we'll stop there," Bale added.

The actor has even revealed that they were offered a fourth installment after the great success achieved with the trilogy, but preferred to reject it to keep Nolan's idea on its feet. "When, inevitably, they came and told us: 'How about a fourth?'. I said: 'No. We have to adjust to Chris' dream, which has always been to make a trilogy.' We're not going to get longer and become too lenient and make a fourth. That's why we, well Chris, left. After being informed, my services were no longer required, "he concludes.

With these statements by Bale and seeing the Nolan trilogy, do you think a fourth was necessary? After Bale, Ben Affleck got into the character's skin in the DC movie universe. After his departure, it will be Robert Pattinson who plays Bruce Wayne in The Batman, the film about the Dark Knight that Matt Reeves prepares and that will hit theaters on June 25, 2021. Precisely Pattinson is one of the protagonists of Tenet , the new Nolan that opens on July 17, 2020 in the United Kingdom - still no date confirmed in Spain.

Christian Bale, meanwhile, has recently released Le Mans '66, a James Mangold movie in which he gives life to the intrepid pilot and engineer Ken Miles.
