LOS ANGELES, July 2 (UPI) -- Christian Bale, who played Batman in three Hollywood blockbusters, says he won't reprise the role in a Justice League superhero ensemble film.

"We were incredibly fortunate to get to make three [Batman films]. That's enough. Let's not get greedy," Bale told EW.com. "Chris [Nolan] always said he wanted to make it one film at a time. And we ended up sitting there looking at each other, saying, 'We're about to make the third.' We never really knew if we were going to get to be there, but if that was how it was going to be, this was where it should end as well."

The actor went on to say he hasn't been included in official talks about a possible Justice League movie.

"I have no information, no knowledge about anything. I've literally not had a conversation with a living soul. I understand that they may be making a Justice League movie, that's it."

So, how would he feel if another actor was cast in the role of the Caped Crusader?

"It's a torch that should be handed from one actor to another. So, I enjoy looking forward to what somebody else will come up with," he told EW.com.
