About three weeks ago saw a crazy fan theory hit the net stating Christian Bale is still playing the Batman, that Ben Affleck is really playing Deathstroke, and that Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice is actually the fifth of the Christopher Nolan movies ("v" being the Roman Numeral five).

Now word of the theory has actually made its way to Christian Bale, thanks to Yahoo who caught up with the actor and questioned if his return was even possible.

“I haven’t heard that. This is the first I’ve heard of it,” Bale said. “I think it’s pretty clear that Ben [Affleck] is playing Batman now.”

Well, the theory did state that Ben Affleck was playing Batman - just as Slade Wilson - which happened in the comic books; however, don't get your hopes up Nolanites as Christian Bale says a definite no his return.

 “No, it’s not happening," Bale said.

"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" has a March 25, 2016 release starring Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Ray Fisher as Cyborg with Callan Mulvey, Holly Hunter as Senator Finch and Tao Okamoto as Mercy Graves. Justice League is to follow directed by Zack Snyder as well.


Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
