The rumours that the actor would reprise his role as Batman in a potential DC Comics ensemble film have been debunked, along with speculation that Dark Knight Rises writer David Goyer is attached to the project.
"If Bale is coming back and Goyer is penning, it's news to Warner Bros," the source told Comic Book Movie.
The insider did, however, confirm that Dark Knight Rises director and Man of Steel producer Christopher Nolan is involved in the project. He was recently rumoured to be producing the film.
"Fans' enthusiasm for more movies will be rewarded once Man of Steel comes out," said the source.
Man of Steel director Zack Snyder was also confirmed as a producer on Justice League.
Warner Bros has indicated that the possibility of the Justice League project moving ahead hinges on the success of Man of Steel, which will debut on June 14.
