Christopher Nolan, the director of the latest Batman trilogy, has implied that the series comes to a definitive close with the soon to be released The Dark Knight Rises. This has led to months of debate about whether or not Batman will actually die in the film. According to Christian Bale, the actor who plays Batman, we might be jumping to conclusions. Bale says,
“My understanding is that this is the last one. I think it’s appropriate, I think it’s going out at the right time. But…if Chris came to me with a script and said, ‘You know what? There is another story’ then I would love the challenge of making a fourth one work.”
He could be intentionally misleading us all to protect the story or he could be telling the truth. Either way, it certainly raises the possibility that his Batman lives to see another day!
