What can we say -- when you have a strong franchise you have a strong franchise. Thanks most in part to Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale, the Batman franchise not only has legs once again but a future. While discussing The Dark Knight with The Star-Ledger, Christian Bale admitted that a sequel is already being optioned.

By the film, that is.

Bale on Dark Knight Sequel

While discussing Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, Bale also touched on other projects:

"Batman Begins changed things, but not in the way most people would imagine," the 34-year-old actor says afterward, as the car inches through Manhattan traffic. "What I did after -- a supporting role in 'The New World,' 'Harsh Times' -- not your typical follow-ups... And it didn't really 'allow' me to do smaller pictures, because I was doing plenty of them before 'Batman.' What it allowed was for me to be talked about. It allowed me to be considered for many more roles."

After switching gears and discussing his role in the upcoming film Rescue Dawn, Bale claims that The Dark Knight leaves the door open for another Batman sequel:

"The script leaves room for a very interesting follow-up, too," Bale says of the potential for a third film. "I think we could take it somewhere else."

Good to hear it! Check out the full report at The Star-Ledger.

The Dark Knight opens to theatres on July 18th, 2008.
