Not really, but now you'll actually be momentarily shocked when you find out he won't be.

In the "must be a slow news day" department, Bleeding Cool published an article yesterday helpfully informing readers that Christian Bale will not reprise his role as Batman in the Justice League movie. Of course, everyone already knew that, but that didn't stop Rich Johnston from... wait, it wasn't Rich? Okay, Brendon Connelly.. No? It was who? They have more than two writers? Kate Kotler? No?! Craig Skinner? Who the hell is that?
Well, this "Craig Skinner," whoever he is, published this article, which basically takes a few quotes from a Bale interview in Entertainment Weekly wherein Bale says he has no information about a Justice League and that three Batman movies are "enough." He's done with them. Professionally.
"It’s a torch that should be handed from one actor to another. So I enjoy looking forward to what somebody else will come up with," Bale told the magazine, presumably in a ridiculously gruff voice.
Well, that's that then. That thing you already know is still true. Thanks, "Craig Skinner," if that really is your name.
Update: Oh, for fucks sake... IGN and CinemaBlend have picked up the story too. Don't you people have any dignity?! At least pretend like you're decrying this shameless hit baiting while actually taking part in it, like we are!
