Is there really any doubt that Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight is the best Batman movie? Sure, arguments can be made for others but, with his second film, Nolan was able to strike a perfect balance of all things Batman, and thus anchor a legendary trilogy.
This weekend, a new man dons the famous cape and cowl. To mark the occasion, we decided to go back and see how Keaton and Bale, via Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman and Christopher Nolan’s 2005 Batman Begins, held up. Spoiler alert—they hold up really, really well.
Even though there were early rumors that Warner Bros. might back a Brinks truck up to Christian Bale’s home in order to have him appear as Batman in the new DC movie universe, Zack Snyder says that was that never going to happen—but that doesn’t mean Bale still couldn’t have appeared in BvS.
While out on publicity for his latest movie, The Knight of Cups, Christian Bale has expressed some second thoughts about his portrayal of Bruce Wayne/Batman for Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy.
Of course Morgan Freeman is going to be asked what he thinks about the new Batman. There’s nothing better than someone from one incarnation of Batman slagging off another, and Freeman sort of obliged. Although his comments are more like the “reasonable caveats” than “lobbing a firebomb at Zack Snyder’s house.”
James Bond movies are generally ridiculous, although they run the gamut from Casino Royale to Moonraker. Spectre, the new one that’s out today, is definitely one of the more ridiculous of the bunch—but holds itself with a kind of overly grim dignity, like a teenage executioner. The good news? The action sequences are…
Poor Christian Bale. Even though he had known a new Batman was coming, he was still thrown by the announcement that Ben Affleck would play the part in Batman v. Superman.
Why is Ridley Scott's Exodus movie different from all other movies? Because it has Christian Bale as Moses, shout-acting and growing a Duck Dynasty beard as he unleashes locusts, alligators and blood splatters on Egypt. Because it has insanely widescreen Biblical effects. Because it looks insane.
Here it is the first-ever look at Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods and Kings, which looks absolutely bonkers. Christian Bale is Moses; Sigourney Weaver is his fake mom and Joel Edgerton is Rameses, which is good because as we all know Rameses was Australian.
Now that Christian Bale has passed on the Bat-cowl to Ben Affleck, Access Hollywood asked the actor if he had given the new Dark Knight any advice regarding the role. Bale had, and his suggestions may surprise you — that is, unless you somehow guessed they were solely about peeing.
Each actor who auditioned for the role of Bruce Wayne in Batman Begins had to do their best Batman while wearing Val Kilmer's batsuit. Watch Christian Bale's, when he was going a bit lighter on the gravelly Batman voice.
File this away as the totally unsubstantiated rumor of the day. Latino Review is reporting that Warner Bros. is ready to do just about anything to make a Justice League movie happen, including bringing back Christian Bale and Chris Nolan.
WARNING: If you are capable of having emotions, the above video will likely make you cry. It's of 8-year-old leukemia sufferer Zach Guillot, who just happened to receive a lengthy phone call from actor Christian Bale, who wanted to discuss Zach's favorite superhero, Batman, with him.

Long before Bale was hopping about Gotham in his cape and cowl, he was cast in the Swedish fantasy movie Mio in the Land of Faraway as a boy named Jum-Jum. The Swedish fairy tale (originally titled Mio Min Mio took place half on Earth and half in Land of Faraway, where the evil Knight Kato (played by Christopher Lee)…
This is absolutely golden. Thanks to the magics of the internet, somebody was able to leak the secret off-camera conversations between Morgan Freeman and Christan Bale on the set of The Dark Knight Rises. In these short snippets of mania, learn how Freeman has no idea who Batman actually is and how his dulcet voice…
We've been eagerly anticipating any news at all on the re-teaming of The Machinist collaborators Brad Anderson and Christian Bale, a movie adaptation of J.G. Ballard's Concrete Island. Even though the movie is years away, take a look at the first ever artwork from this dystopian film.
Darren Aronofsky wants to do an "edgy re-telling" of the tale of Noah's ark. The first step? Getting Christian Bale to play the titular Noah.
Back in May of 2009, we predicted that Christian Bale and The Machinist's Brad Anderson would be teaming up again to bring J.G. Ballard's Concrete Island to life. Looks like that film is finally moving forward, according to various online reports. So, who's ready to see Bale lose his mind, a ton of weight, and eat his…
At 9:00 pm EST, we're picking a gem from the Netflix Watch Instantly library and tweeting the shit out of it. This week, we're fighting dragons with Christian Bale and Matthew McConaughey's Reign of Fire.
Kevin Conroy, the voice of Batman on Batman: The Animated Series, had some choice words for Christian Bale's gravelly Bat-voice. Although he praised Bale's performance, Conroy noted that Bale "just got steered wrong" in the voice department.
