Christian Bale Offered $50 Million to Return for "Man of Steel 2"?
From worstpreviews, Who will play Batman in "2"? That's the big question around Hollywood as director Zack Snyder is getting ready to begin filming the sequel next year. There are plenty of rumors regarding the role, including one from THR, claiming that Josh Brolin is the favorite to play the superhero.
Today we have two more rumors, both coming from incredibly unreliable sources. The first is from LatinoReview, which says that Warner Bros wants Christian Bale to reprise his role. The studio wants him so bad that they offered him $50 million. The money depends on how the film performs, but considering how much "Man of Steel" grossed, $50 million would be very possible.
The story didn't actually come from LatinoReview, but from a new, called "Beyond Batman: The Unauthorizedof Christian Bale and His Dark Knight Dilemma," which sites several sources close to production.
The other rumor comes fromAdkins' fansite that claims that the actor has already auditioned for the role of Batman. Adkins is known for "The Expendables 2," "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," "Zero Dark Thirty" and "Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning."
