Christian Bale says now that he’s finished filming The Dark Knight Rises, he’s hanging up his Batman cape. He told the Philippine Daily Inquirer during an interview that took place in Beverly Hills: “I wrapped a few days ago, so that will be the last time I’m taking that cowl off. I believe that the whole production wrapped yesterday, so it’s all done. Everything’s finished. It’s me and Chris [director Christopher Nolan]– that will be the end of that Batman era.” The Dark Knight Rises marks Bale’s third film in the role of Batman, following Batman Begins (2005) and The Dark Knight (2008). Bale, who won an Oscar earlier this year for his performance in The Fighter, has several other films lined up, including Lawless with Ryan Gosling and Knight of Cups with Cate Blanchett. The Dark Knight Rises opens in theaters July 20, 2012.
