Christian Bale Reportedly Offered $50 Million To Reprise Batman

– by El Mayimbe

baleIs it possible that Christian Bale is still not done donning the cape the cowl? According to a new ebook, "Beyond Batman: The Unauthorized True Story of Christian Bale and His Dark Knight Dilemma" this may be the case.

The book cites sources close to Legendary Pictures that asserts Bale may have "no choice" but to don the cowl at least one more time.

According to the publisher of "Beyond Batman," the Hollywood mega star likely won't be able to refuse the potential $50 million payday that could come from playing Batman again.

Damn that is a lot of Bat bucks!

In my experience where there is smoke, there is fire. There is something in law called slander and no one would be stupid enough to put false information like this out there to make a quick profit and face a lawsuit no matter how many disclaimers the book has.

The book's author Vince Russel says the following:

As the bat signal still glimmers with fervor above Bale's Hollywood marquee, Christian Bale's experience as the Batman of our generation is about to prove more inescapable than he expected. With three of the most successful Batman films in Hollywood history under his belt, Christian Bale is now facing extraordinary pressure to become The Dark Knight once again.

Could it be that Bale not sees the Batman films the way Robert Downey Jr sees the Iron Man films? The author adds:

"Although Downey has appeared as Tony Stark in four movies in less than a decade, he’s hardly typecast as Iron Man," Russel says, "Downey has balanced his action film escapades with other projects that have harnessed his talents and earned critical acclaim in the process. If Bale follows a similar formula, his box office glory days may not be behind him – a reality that other men who have donned the black cape weren’t so fortunate to experience."

The book at the end makes a ballsy claim. Christian Bale’s future success as a top Hollywood draw...

"...may need Batman every bit as much as the Batman franchise still needs Christian Bale."

I don't know about that. Christian is after all an Oscar winner. What do you cool kids think? Is this guy right or wrong? Chime in below. I'm doing my rounds and you know I am all over this story. The minute I know who the Goddamn Batman is, Bale or no Bale, I will let you all know.

Here is the book's summary:

"Beyond Batman" is the unauthorized true story of Christian Bale and his real life Dark Knight dilemma.

As the bat signal still glimmers with fervor above Bale's Hollywood marquee, this compelling, first-of-its-kind work recounts Christian Bale's inescapable experience as the Batman of our generation.

With three of the most successful Batman films in Hollywood history under his belt, Christian Bale is now facing extraordinary pressure to become The Dark Knight once more in the forthcoming Justice League film.

This compelling read exposes how sources close to Christian Bale have reportedly begun expressing their suspicions that Bale now views the Batman films in the same light that Robert Downey, Jr. views the Iron Man films.

Although Downey has appeared as Tony Stark in four movies in less than a decade, he’s hardly typecast as Iron Man. Downey has balanced his action film escapades with other projects that have harnessed his talents and earned critical acclaim in the process.

If Bale follows a similar formula, his box office glory days may not be behind him – a reality that other men who have donned the black cape weren’t so fortunate to experience.

In the end, Christian Bale’s future success as a top Hollywood draw may need Batman every bit as much as the Batman franchise still needs Christian Bale.
