The time for healing has begun for those who were greatly affected by such a senseless act of violence in Aurora, Colorado that left 12 dead and dozens injured. But through all this tragedy, here’s at least a little good news that will brighten things up in these trying times. According to The Denver Post, actor Christian Bale, star of the current Batman film The Dark Knight Rises and the two previous Batman films of the trilogy, made an unexpected visit to Aurora on Tuesday afternoon to check in on the victims off the heinous crime that occurred during the midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises on July 20th.
Sources say Bale arrived at the Medical Center of Aurora South at 2pm on Tuesday afternoon. There, he reportedly spent 2 hours with seven of the victims. Carey Rottman, one of the seven victims visited by Bale was in shock over the visit. ”Wow! Thank you so much for the visit Christian!! What a great guy! Still in shock!” said Rottman.
Additionally, Bale, accompanied by his wife Sibi Blazic, met with doctors, Aurora police officers and others who were first on the scene as the tragedy broke out at the Century Aurora 16 theater. And if there was ever any doubt that Bale’s impromptu visit had any involvment with Warner Bros, officials from Warner addressed that they had abosolutely no hand in Bale’s actions. He was there as himself and not representing Warner Bros.
