It’s tough to find anything good about the horrible theater shooting that occurred during last Thursday’s midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises. But at least the victims got a little lift when Batman himself showed up at the hospital.
Christian Bale, who specifically asked that the media not be notified of his visit, arrived at the Medical Center of Aurora early this morning and posed with the hospital staff and victims for more than two and a half hours.
Bale issued a brief statement the day after the deadly massacre, noting, “Words cannot express the horror that I feel. I cannot begin to truly understand the pain and grief of the victims and their loved ones, but my heart goes out to them.”
