We didn’t expect big Batman news from Christian Bale while he’s promoting his new drama, The Fighter. He doesn’t shoot until next year, but I thought at least I could get his reaction to the title Christopher Nolan announced. Bale doesn’t even believe it’s going to be called The Dark Knight Rises.
“I don’t even know if that’s true,” Bale said when I asked him what he thought of the title.
Nolan told The LA Times’ Hero Complex the new title, but hasn’t spoken to his actors yet. “Until Chris tells me, I don’t know,” Bale said.
Bale was nice enough to answer the question as he was being whisked to some other press op. He’ll get good notice for The Fighter so he doesn’t have to worry about Batman news overshadowing that next month.
