Christian Bale Could Be Replaced by Sam Worthington in Next 'Batman' Film

An interesting tidbit in relation to Batman has been unraveled as Sam Worthington's name has been tossed in as the depicter of the bat-costumed hero for the next installment of "Batman" film. The Herald Sun was the first to break the news, suggesting that Worthington could be filling the shoes of his "Terminator Salvation" co-star, Christian Bale, in "Batman 3".

"Industry gossip now suggests the rising Australian star could score the part of Batman in the third installment of the successful prequel franchise," so read the report. "That could mean replacing Bale, his Terminator co-star and The Dark Knight lead, whose profile was damaged after his infamous "me, me, me" meltdown on the Terminator set, which recently hit the internet."

Seeing that Christian Bale is already committed to do a third Batman film and his two Batman movies, "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight", have been a great success, many believe that this report points to the false rumors. Though so, neither Warner Bros. nor Sam Worthington and Christian Bale have come up with a statement over the matter yet.

All rumors aside, much about "Batman 3" remain unclear. The speculation over this follow-up movie has grown since "The Dark Knight" displayed its amazing run at the box office. Listed as U.S. second highest grossing movie of all time behind James Cameron's 1997 "Titanic", the Christian Bale-starring film has reached the one billion dollar milestone late February.
