Christian Bale offered €38m to star in new Batman movie
WARNER Brothers has reportedly offered actor Chritsian Bale almost €40m ($50m) to reprise his role as Batman for their new project ‘Superman Vs Batman’.
However Bale has previously ruled out reprising the role, claiming the three instalments of the ‘Dark Knight’ franchise were enough for him.
However it is believed that the studio has placed the actor under immense pressure to reconsider, and has tabled the impressive financial offer as a result.
Should Bale refuse to sign on, it is believed the studio are considering either Orlando Bloom or Ryan Gosling to take on the role.
Production on the movie is due to being early next year, with a release possibly following in the summer of 2015.
The Dark Knight film series grossed just shy of €2bln worldwide over the course of the three movie run.
