Christian Bale offered £40 million to play Batman again
£40 million pounds = Around 50 - 60 million USD
Song to listen to when you enter the thread.
I liked Bale as Batman, but he didn't own the role in the same way Ledger did with the Joker. That's not necessarily a criticism though. Any (super)hero role should be able pass from actor to actor in the same way as James Bond, or Doctor Who.
