Christian Bale, star of next month's Terminator Salvation, discussed Heath Ledger's Oscar win and the future of the Batman franchise with the editors of Total Film magazine.

"Will we do a third movie?" said Bale. "It's got to be the right story. You can't make something like The Dark Knight and then come out with something disappointing.

"I would like it if people say, 'You'll never make a good third movie.' I say, 'OK, let's make a third movie in that case, let's prove them wrong.' But that's just me. The fact is, I have to! I've signed up!"
