No matter how much you try to fight it, Warner Bros. will probably reboot the Batman franchise within the next few years. Christopher Nolan's latest trilogy may be the most critically-acclaimed batch of comic book movies of all time, but there is still money to be made. And so far the Caped Crusader is one of the studio's only profitable comic book properties. And strangely enough the person who came out first to support the eventual reboot was Christian Bale, the man who just hung up the tights.

"I'm very intrigued to see another interpretation of it at this point," he told MTV News in a recent interview. "It would be very interesting to see what someone else does with the character. I'd be the first one there to watch."

Bale explained that he would be excited at the prospect of someone else taking over the franchise because of how many different interpretations of the character there have been over the years. "There have been many wonderful ones," he said. "Adam West did it fantastically, spoofing it. I'm sincere. He really did." 

We're pretty sure that the studio won't go the West route, but we wouldn't be shocked if the next Batman series lightened things up just a bit in order to get younger kids back into the theaters.
