Those of you expecting a Batman 4 in 2015 should now recheck your hopes at the door. E! recently sat down with Christian Bale, who said that he believes this is that last time he’ll don the cape and cowl of the caped crusader. But, as most news surrounding a Christopher Nolan film, nothing is set in stone until it comes out of the director’s own mouth. Bale had this to say about continuing the series:
Until Chris [Nolan] tells me [there will be a Batman 4], I don't believe it. It's gotta be from his mouth, or else I don't really know.

As far as the story for The Dark Knight Rises goes, Bale is hardly more informed than we are, which is not much at all. Nolan always keeps his films veiled in several layers of mystery that only he himself will peel away as he sees fit.
Chris will let me know what I need to know when I need to know it. I probably know a little bit more than some other people out there, but I think most people would be surprised at how little I do know. It just hasn't been necessary yet. I know he'll give me plenty of time to prepare for whatever I need to, and I'll discover it. He's a pretty damn good filmmaker. I trust that he's going to come up with something wonderful.

The idea of Bale not doing any more Batman films likely correlates with the idea of Nolan not doing any more either. This will be the director’s third outing in the series, and although the last installment became the most revered and highest grossing superhero film of all time, it’s easy to see how someone will want to walk away before getting too tired of the job. We’ll have more on this as TDKR nears production, but until then, take all of this as rumor.
