Christian Bale looking forward to the next Batman

Batman Christian Bale is looking forward to the Caped Crusader's next movie adventure - because he can't wait to see what another actor does with the comic book superhero.

Bale has portrayed Bruce Wayne's alter-ego in Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, which concludes with this month's (Jul12) The Dark Knight Rises, for the past eight years, and although he'll miss the character, the actor knows it's time for someone else to fight evil on the streets of Gotham City.

He tells Entertainment Weekly magazine, "They're (studio bosses) going to rejuvenate it (Batman franchise) soon, and I'll have to be watching someone else play it. I'll be fascinated to see which way they go, which choices that actor makes."
