Fanboy Fix: 'Batman 4,' 'The Crowe' Remake and Mysterious Neill Blomkamp Viral

Christian Bale Says 'The Dark Knight Rises' Is His Final Batman

This isn't exactly surprising news since we figured Christian Bale and some of his Batman co-stars were signed to a three-picture deal from the get-go, which means The Dark Knight Rises will put an end to their commitment to this franchise. But while promoting The Fighter over the weekend, folks wanted to hear it straight from the horse's mouth. When asked whether this would be the final Batman movie for him, Bale responded, "I believe, unless Chris [Nolan] says different, this will be the last time I'm playing Batman," later adding, "Until Chris tells me, I don't believe it, It's gotta be from his mouth, or else I don't really know."

Christopher Nolan negotiates his deals movie to movie, so it sounds like unless he commits to a fourth Batman film (which is highly unlikely), Bale will not be returning to the role. Would you rather see the Batman franchise continue on the big screen following The Dark Knight Rises, or on television?
Mark Wahlberg Not Starring in 'The Crow' Remake
We reported awhile back that Mark Wahlberg was in discussions to lead a brand new remake of The Crow, which was a 1994 film that starred Brandon Lee as a murdered man who returns from the dead to exact revenge upon the people who killed his fiancé. However, while doing press for The Fighter, he told Cinematical that he won't be taking on the project. ""They talked to me about it and there was a director attached who I was a fan of, and he's no longer doing it. We just thought about it – 'is there something cool to be done there?' But we're not committed to making the movie." Oh well – there goes our chance of seeing Wahlberg in way too much face make-up.
Mysterious Viral Video from 'District 9' Director Surfaces
No one seems to know exactly what this video is except that it popped up in an iPad edition of the newest Wired magazine before being uploaded to YouTube for everyone to see. It came with the notation that it was from Neill Blomkamp, who directed District 9, and if you watch it you'll see it has those same "home video/found footage" qualities that the director utilized with last year's big sci-fi hit.
In the video, we see a couple of people stumble upon what looks to be a genetically mutated creature dead on the side of the road, and stamped with 18.12 and an AGM Heartland logo. That logo was recently trademarked with this description: "Entertainment services by way of an online website with video, audio and textual content and images featuring characters and storylines about a fictional genetic engineering company that produces genetically engineered and altered organisms."
So what is this? Is it online viral for Blomkamp's next film? Seems like it, right? Check out the video below (courtesy of Slashfilm) and let us know what you think.
