Christian Bale on "Batman Begins"

Dark Horizons has posted an interview with Christian Bale, the star of the new Batman movie titled "Batman Begins." He says he's "not somebody that comes from a real comic book-loving background" and that he can't see why someone would dress in that kind of suit. When he wore it, it "made me feel like a creature, and I didn't feel 'human' anymore." He thinks the movie has to either "be done like a spoof, like the TV series was, or else to me it had to go somewhere else we haven't seen before." Bale's take on the character is that he is initially bent on revenge, thinking it's only a one-shot deal, but "it ends up consuming him and sucking him in."

This is going to be incredible, although that probably hinges on how much creative influence David Goyer had in making the film. Hopefully, his influence was small and most of the movie comes from Chris Nolan.

Christopher Nolan's a superb director and Christian Bale is a decent actor...this will rock.

I just hope the action wonīt be so lame like in the other movies...even those from tim burton had boring action scenes.

Christopher nolan is an incredible director... but i don't really know if i can see him doing batman... I still look forward to seeing it though. The series has gone incredibly downhill since Burton left, and i hope that Nolan can inject some life into it.

The batman franchise hasnt seen a decent movie since the first batman,which to me still remains the best comic book movie ever even though im not a big batman fan.Im sure ill go and see it though ive seen everyother superhero movie thats came out ,usually being disapointed.

If this is an official prequel to the other 4 movies, then it will surely suck. We won't get a Joker, or Bane, or Two-Face..... Who will be the villain in the next movie? Mad Hatter?

The villain is going to be The Scarecrow played Cillian Murphy from 28 Days Later. Christopher Nolan is a great director and I hope he can make make up for the mess that Joel Schulmaker made of the last 2 films.

Bale is a good actor, but Reign of Fire and Equilibrium are not even close to his best films. Check him out in "Empire of the Sun", "The Machinist", and "American Psycho", although Equilibrium is a fairly decent film, you can't quite take him serious, since the character seems weakly written.
