‘Dark Knight Rises’ will be last Batman film for Christian Bale

E! Online reports Christian Bale says this next Batman film “The Dark Knight Rises” will be his last.

“I believe, unless Chris (Nolan) says different, this will be the last time I’m playing Batman.”

On continuing to reprise the role Bale said: “Until Chris tells me, I don’t believe it. It’s gotta be from his mouth, or else I don’t really know.”

To MTV news Bale says: “Chris will let me know what I need to know when I need to know it. I probably know a little bit more than some other people out there, but I think most people would be surprised at how little I do know.”

Bale is set to return with Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Gary Oldman from the previous films directed by Christopher Nolan.

The Dark Knight Rises is set to arrive in theaters July 20, 2012.
