You know by now that I love Batman. To a ridiculous degree. But did you also know I have a thing for Christian Bale? That may sound silly and/or obvious considering he’s a handsome Hollywood actor who lots of women probably have a “thing” for but my affection for him goes way back. To Newsies.
The funny thing about my strange obsession with Bale is that over the course of the last few years I’ve discovered many women my age who feel the same exact way about him and have that same love for Newsies. So needless to say, when The Dark Knight Rises trailer premiered I had trouble containing myself. I love Batman, I love Bale and this is their last ride together. Although I’m crazy about Bale, he’s not my favorite Batman (that honor goes to Michael Keaton). But no one can say he hasn’t created a memorable role. If for some reason you haven’t yet watched the trailer, do that now and then read on for the thoughts that ran through my head when I watched.
My thoughts on the trailer (and a few more on Bale) in this week's Hey, That's My Cape! at Newsarama.
