    While I'd love to see Christian Bale be Batman again...I can't help but think that is way too much money.

    I would assume if they are offering him this much then it's probably for at least 2 movies but I have been wrong before.

    If they don't get Bale I really don't see anyone doing as good of a job as him.

    $50 millions, lol. They sure know that if they put him on the role they will get back that amount and more too. But that means too that they know that if they don't get him the movie might be a fatal mistake.

    I assume that is 50 million plus percentages and such like. If not 50 million seems kind of low.

    I honestly didn't like Bale as Batman(he is an awesome Bruce Wayne though). It has got to the point where as long as he's acting he has to be Batman/Bruce. I can not imagine any one else taking over the role and being able to make an impact like the last three movies have. It's my feeling that in order for the Superman/Batman clash to work they need Bale. If he turns down the 50, expect to hear 75 soon.

    Christian Bale was offered $50 million. Atheist Bale wasn't. Take that, atheists.

    I liked Christian Bale in the Nolan trilogy, I really did, but I think it's time to move on. His Bruce Wayne/Batman is not suited for a world with the likes of Superman and Wonder Woman. Plus, he's already played Batman in more films than any other actor (not getting into the old serials here); I think it's time for someone else to get their shot.

    TL;DR: I hope Christian bails.

    I can't help but think that Bale would regret doing Superman vs Batman. The title sounds lame enough to put me off, but I can't imagine Christian Bale wanting to share the spotlight with somebody as inexperienced as Henry Cavill. We already know what happens on one of his bad days.

    Bale's Bruce Wayne retired from being Batman, so it seems to me that they'd have to make this movie exist in another universe, at which point, why do Bale again? Now if you do want it in the same universe, I think you have to go with Joseph Gordon Levitt taking up the Batman mantle.

    If you think there is a universe were Batman or Iron man or Spider-man ever stay retired for long you don't know them so well you think you do!

    If this were, say, Val Kilmer's batman, I would not be surprised to see him come out of retirement, but Nolan brought something different to his universe.

    This is a very educated response, and loudly rings a bell of truth. Yeah Bale, but 50 Million? Priorities are so messed up in this day and age.

    As crazy as 50 million sounds to all of you, it's pennies compared to what the last three Batman movies made. If they can get him locked into a few more flicks for 50, they are getting off cheap.

    I thought Bale was a pretty good Batman, but I was really hoping to see another actor take a shot at the role. It would be really cool to see someone who could match Kevin Conroy's vocal performance (my favorite batman for sure).

    I didn't like Bale as Batman in fact I thought he was pretty horrible. With that said I'm really hoping they have a new Batman in the new Man of Steel sequel.

    As much as I like Christian Bale, especially as Batman, I don't want to see him in this movie. His Batman, is the dark side of the character. For some reason, when I think of Superman, I don't really see a movie that can be all dark. Hopefully I'm wrong though.

    Basically this. He's a fantastic Bruce Wayne, but not Batman. He always seemed so stiff in his movements. And that voice, that god awful voice. They need an actor who has that stern but really clear voice, not someone who has to force it out.
