Rumor Debunked: Christian Bale Not Returning As Batman In The Flash
According to a recent tweet by Geeks Worldwide’s KC Walsh, Christian Bale will not be appearing as Batman in The Flash. Walsh firmly stated that “100% no” when responding to a fan who was sure that Bale would be in the film.
Why Bale’s Batman Might Not Fit In The Flash
Bale’s Batman was part of a realistic and grounded universe, which might not be a good fit for the fantastical, multi-dimensional story being told in The Flash. Furthermore, Bale has previously stated that he would only return to the role if Christopher Nolan, the director of the Dark Knight trilogy, was involved. Nolan has not been involved in any DC-related projects since producing 2013’s Man of Steel.

As the second of four DC movies scheduled for release in 2023, The Flash is sure to excite fans with its bold and ambitious approach to the Multiverse.
