More Stupid Batman Casting Rumors: Sam Worthington To Replace Christian Bale

The Australian newspaper The Herald Sun is reporting that "Industry gossip now suggests the rising Australian star [Sam Worthington] could score the part of Batman in the third installment of the successful prequel franchise." We've already gotten a bunch of e-mails linking this story, which means the story is already getting around the internets. But the fact of the matter is, Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight sequel isn't even close to approaching the casting stage. Christian Bale has said that he would return for another film if Nolan came back with a good story, and anyone who believes that Warner Bros would mess with any of the main ingredients in their successful comic book franchise is on crack.
