"I never say the last time for me for anything"
Sir Michael Caine has revealed that he may continue making Batman films after current director Christopher Nolan leaves. Speaking about the future of the franchise after The Dark Knight Rises, the actor said:
I think it will be the last Batman that Chris Nolan will make. I never say the last time for me for anything.
It wouldn’t be the first time that an actor playing Alfred has stayed on in the role after a director, or indeed an actor playing Bruce Wayne, has left.
Michael Gough, who passed away earlier this year, played the role of the butler for both Tim Burton and Joel Schumacher, alongside Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer and George Clooney.
In the interview, Caine also revealed that the shoot is at the halfway point and that the scenes in England are wrapped, with production moving to America.
The official trailer for The Dark Knight Rises was released earlier this week.
Caine is currently promoting Cars 2, which is due for release this Friday (July 22).Video
