Personal Quote:

[on Batman Begins (2005)] I've never felt like the Batman character in the films was given as much time as any of the villains. The villains were always the most interesting characters, too. Batman has always been this very bizarre, almost blind character running through the middle of the story. Our film is different. See more »

Trivia:

He has two roles in common with Jeremy Sisto: (1) Bale played Batman / Bruce Wayne in Batman Begins (2005), The Dark Knight (2008) and The Dark Knight Rises (2012) while Sisto played him in Justice League: The New Frontier (2008) and (2) Sisto played Jesus Christ in Jesus (1999) while Bale played him in Mary, Mother of Jesus (1999).

Trademark:

Remains in character almost constantly during the filming process even going so far as to conduct interviews using whatever accent he is using for that particular film. See more »
