Christian Bale has paid a visit to victims of the Dark Knight Rises shooting in Aurora.

The actor, who portrayed Batman in all three of Christopher Nolan’s films, spent nearly three hours chatting with those who had been injured in the attack. He was accompanied by his wife Sibi Blazic.

“Mr Bale is there as himself, not representing Warner Brothers,” a representative for the studio told the Denver Post.
