Gossips Say Warner Brothers Will Replace Bale As Batman


Newspapers citing “industry gossip” say Warner Bros will replace Christian Bale in the next Batman flick with his co-star from Terminator Salvation, Sam Worthington. These gossips say Warner execs worry Bale’s on set rant during Terminator‘s filming will keep people from the theatre.

io9 takes a good whack at the rumour:

Forget the fact that Bale already has a contract with the WB for the next Batman, this rumour is absolutely absurd. I don’t care if Bale was caught on camera lighting kittens on fire wrapped in an American flag, this man is still pretty untouchable. How’s that? Because he made Warner Brothers a bazillion dollars playing Batman. Do you really think the WB would risk losing Dark Knight money over a silly tape that will be ancient history in a year or two?

We can think of about 533 million reason to concur with io9’s take.
