LOS ANGELES, Nov. 23 (UPI) -- Welsh-born actor Christian Bale says the upcoming "The Dark Knight Rises" will likely be his final outing as Batman.

Bale played the Caped Crusader in filmmaker Christopher Nolan's blockbusters "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight."

"Until Chris tells me, I don't believe it," Bale told E! News about when he knows another Batman movie is on the horizon. "It's gotta be from his mouth, or else I don't really know."

Bale went on to say Nolan hasn't informed him regarding whether he plans to make a fourth installment in the franchise after he completes "Rises."

"The thing is that this will be, I believe, unless Chris says different, this will be the last time I'm playing Batman," Bale told E! News.
