Christian Bale 'will not be in Justice League movie' Published Sunday, Jun 16 2013, 11:52am EDT | By Zeba Blay (DIGITAL SPY)
Christian Bale will most likely not appear in a potential Justice League movie, according to writer David S Goyer.
Goyer, co-writer of The Dark Knight and writer of this year's Man of Steel, revealed his thoughts on a possible cinematic DC universe to Hey Guys and Den of Geek.
He said that Batman does exist in the Man of Steel universe, but "it would be a different Bruce Wayne from the Dark Knight trilogy".
Goyer added that while the popularity of Marvel's Avengers has made execs at Warner Bros. seriously consider a Justice League film, such a project would depend on the success of Man of Steel.
"Warner Bros. has hopes that there will be more Man of Steel films, and that this will be the beginning of a shared universe," he explained.
"We could meet Batman, or Wonder Woman, or the Justice League in these movies. But they all hinge on box office reception."
