WhoIsWillo: Ohhhhh, goooood for you.

Seriously, good on you, Mr. Bale. That's a classy move, and to do it lo-key is probably for the best.

/Would be nice of the rest of the cast would join him too.


well, a dozen of em got to meet heath ledger.

If I were in the hospital when he came in I'd pretend like I was just coming out of unconsciousness and ask him "why didn't you just kill me?" and even though it was Tom Hardy's line he wouldn't miss a beat and in a perfect Bane voice say "your punishment must be more severe" because he's such a great actor and then we'd have a little moment and I'd pull out the screenplay I had been working on while recovering and he'd look it over and say "yes, I'd love to play the lead in this. May I show it to some friends of mine? I think Chris Nolan would definitely be excited about directing it" and then the morphine would start to wear off and I'd realize I had been talking to the vital signs monitor all along and because it was sort of an Inception-ey moment I'd be all BWAHHHHM.

At work just now, swear to God

Me: Oh, that's cool, Christian Bale visited the shooting victims". Co-worker: "He hasn't been a movie in a long time, like True Romance." Me: "Uh...dude, that's Christian Slater. Why in the hell would Christian Slater visit the hospital? Look kids, the guy from Heathers is here to brighten your day!"

*Morgan Freeman walks in, points, and says*

"Titty sprinkles!"

*then he walks out*


That would cheer me up if I were in the hospital.

Wouldn't work. Hardy is too roided up and intimidating, Caine would want to do a shot with everyone, Morgan Freeman would narrate every second of his trip out loud, Gary Oldman would behave like Gary Oldman, and if Hathaway went, some of the wounded fanboys may spooge themselves into lethal dehydration.

I hope he sneaked up on some injured moviegoer napping in her hospital bed, bent down close, and whispered in his gravelly Batman voice, "YOU WANTED ME, HERE I AM."

They could get together. Bale could do Batman and Slater could do The Joker in the Jack Nicholson voice that he can't avoid doing.

I'm going to summon Marx to comment on this.

Batman propagates a myth that the bourgeoisie will come to protect the proletariat from itself. Meanwhile the poverty created by the bourgeoisie among the proletariat gives rise to the criminal underclass which victimizes the proletariat while giving the bourgeoisie a cause to rise a police state to control the proletariat and keep them from rising against their betters.

What kind of twisted bastard are you? Who in the hell did this to you?

What you are missing is that my illness is partially chud21's fault. Him, daRog, basemetal, vortexdweller, lantawa. they all warped my fragile mind.
I swear to god, I was a good person once, and they broke me.

He should show up as Bane in some sleeping patient's room, the younger the better, with that jock strap on his face, get right in the kid's face....and wait for him to wake up. The kid would love that!

If this were Sean Penn instead of Christian Bale, he would have announced his hospital visit to the media ahead of time and brought his own professional photography crew to take pics of him talking to the victims.
