A new ebook has arrived entitled “Beyond Batman: The Unauthorized True Story of Christian Bale and His Dark Knight Dilemma” by Vince Russel. The book states that a source close to Legendary Pictures asserts Bale may have “no choice” but to don the cowl at least one more time.

According to the ebook’s publisher, Sports Entertainment Publishing, the Oscar winning Bale won’t be able to refuse the huge financial windfall. All he has to do is become the Dark Knight one last time. With each new DC Comics film news running rampant over the Internet like a virus, especially when it concerns Superman and Batman, the author and publisher could be treading dangerous waters in trying to make a fast buck. No matter how many disclaimers they flash in front of readers, the news, if proven false, could be branded as libel.

Here is what the book’s author Vince Russel had to say:

“As the bat signal still glimmers with fervor above Bale’s Hollywood marquee, Christian Bale’s experience as the Batman of our generation is about to prove more inescapable than he expected. With three of the most successful Batman films in Hollywood history under his belt, Christian Bale is now facing extraordinary pressure to become The Dark Knight once again.”

There is a similarity and difference between Bale and Iron Man star Robert Downey, Jr.’s careers. Downey views his Iron Man/Tony Stark role as one of many characters that have graced his acting résumé. Is it possible Bale doesn’t see the potential in utilizing Batman as a stepping stone to access juicier and more artistic roles? Is he afraid he might be typecast as Batman forever? Russel continued.

“Although Downey has appeared as Tony Stark in four movies in less than a decade, he’s hardly typecast as Iron Man. Downey has balanced his action film escapades with other projects that have harnessed his talents and earned critical acclaim in the process. If Bale follows a similar formula, his box office glory days may not be behind him – a reality that other men who have donned the black cape weren’t so fortunate to experience.”

The ebook’s author draws this conclusion.

“Christian Bale’s future success as a top Hollywood draw may need Batman every bit as much as the Batman franchise still needs Christian Bale.”

Here is a summary of the ebook:

“Beyond Batman” is the unauthorized true story of Christian Bale and his real life Dark Knight dilemma.

As the bat signal still glimmers with fervor above Bale’s Hollywood marquee, this compelling, first-of-its-kind work recounts Christian Bale’s inescapable experience as the Batman of our generation.

With three of the most successful Batman films in Hollywood history under his belt, Christian Bale is now facing extraordinary pressure to become The Dark Knight once more in the forthcoming Justice League film.

This compelling read exposes how sources close to Christian Bale have reportedly begun expressing their suspicions that Bale now views the Batman films in the same light that Robert Downey, Jr. views the Iron Man films.

Although Downey has appeared as Tony Stark in four movies in less than a decade, he’s hardly typecast as Iron Man. Downey has balanced his action film escapades with other projects that have harnessed his talents and earned critical acclaim in the process.

If Bale follows a similar formula, his box office glory days may not be behind him – a reality that other men who have donned the black cape weren’t so fortunate to experience.

In the end, Christian Bale’s future success as a top Hollywood draw may need Batman every bit as much as the Batman franchise still needs Christian Bale.
