Christian Bale Completes "End of the Batman Era"

by at . Comments

Filming on The Dark Knight Rises has come to an end and, with it, so has the portrayal of this iconic super hero by Christian Bale.

"I wrapped a few days ago so that will be the last time I'm taking that [Batman hood] off," the actor star told the Philippine Daily Inquirer this week. "I believe that the whole production wrapped yesterday, so it's all done. Everything's finished. It's me and [director Christopher Nolan] - that will be the end of that Batman era."

Bale and Nolan first teamed up in 2005 on Batman Begins, a critically-acclaimed installment of the franchise that earned $372 million across the globe. The Dark Knight then broke the $1 billion barrier and earned Heath Ledger a posthumous Oscar.

The Dark Knight Rises, meanwhile, hits theaters on July 20, 2012 and also stars Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Gary Oldman, Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman. We have a feeling it will do rather well at the box office.
