Actor Christian Bale says that he will never wear his Batman-suit again. The actor just finished shooting his third Batman-movie. ‘That was the last time I took off the costume’, Christian said in an interview. ‘We finished the total production, so that’s it. The end of the Batman era’.
Christian played Batman in Batman Begins (2005), The Dark Knight (2008) – where Heath Ledger starred as the Joker and won the Academy Award – and The Dark Knight Rises, directed by Christopher Nolan. The movie will be released next year. At first Nolan would direct a Batman sequel, but he also signed for a third epic.

Christian Bale is asked to play the lead in the drama ‘the Last Photograph’. The 36-year old actor has read the script and is considering the possibility to star in the movie, according his spokes person to movie site Pajiba.
‘The Last Photograph’ tells the story of two men, who after seeing a war picture decide to make a jearney through Afghanistan. The movie is based on a idea of Zack Snyder, known as director of the movie ’300′ (2006). He will not direct ‘The Last Photograph’. Sergey Bodrov (‘Mongol’) and Niels Arden Oplev (‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’) are mentioned for the job.
If Bale signs, a busy time for him starts. The actor just finished shooting ‘The Fighter’ and the new Batman movie is sceduled. Also he will star in ‘The Tree of Life’ with director Terrence Malick (‘The Thin Red Line’).

People over-use the word ‘intense’. They talk about intense IT courses or intense hair conditioners. But those things aren’t intense, not really; Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale are intense. In a good — but intense — way.
Casting aside stories of on and off-set behaviour, there are few actors who put as much of themselves into their roles or, in the case of Bale’s 63lb weight-loss for The Machinist, take as much out. In post-match parlance, they always give 110 per cent.
Despite the risks of bringing such fervour together (explosion, annihilation, skin irritation), the two have been safely fused in The Fighter, the real-life story of Micky Ward (Wahlberg), a journeyman boxer who reinvented himself to win the WBU welterweight title, occasionally aided by his half-brother Dicky Eklund (Bale): crack addict, jailbird and a local hero who once took Sugar Ray Leonard the distance.
It’s a role that has already bagged Bale a Golden Globe and an Oscar nomination, so we decided to take Bale and Wahlberg, try our best to goad them, and see what might happen if the gloves ever came off.
