The Australian newspaper The Herald Sun reported today that Sam Worthington, who'll be appearing on screen in two high-profile sci-fi flicks this year—Terminator Salvation in May and Avatar in December—may replace Christian Bale in a third Dark Knight flick.

The paper states that "industry gossip" has the Australian actor "tipped" as the next Batman. However, it's important to note that since a third film hasn't even been discussed yet, it's premature for any casting decisions to be made.
