Dark Knight Rises stars respond to Colorado tragedy

News of the horrific events that occurred at the midnight premiere of The Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, Colorado have spread across the world. The latest to comment on the shooting are the films’ stars themselves – Christian Bale, who portrays Batman in the film, Gary Oldman, who plays Commissioner Gordon and Anne Hathaway who took on the role of Catwoman in the trilogy’s last installment. Bale released his statement Saturday, saying, “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.” Hathaway did the same, stating, “My heart aches and breaks for the lives taken and altered by this unfathomably senseless act. I am at a loss for words how to express my sorrow. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.” Oldman also offered his condolences, adding, “My prayers and deepest sympathies are with the victims and their families of this horrific act.”

The stars are not the only ones wanting to send out their prayers and well-wishes. Recently, an idea has started circulating through social networking sites to get Bale to visit those who survived the shooting but remain in hospital. The concept is simple. Get Bale to go to the hospital in his full Batman costume to show these strong individuals that not only do villains exist in our world, but heroes do too. ~Morgan Bates

    The idea of Bale going to see them is good, but dressed up as Batman is ludicrous. They need human support, not some fantasy character patronizing them.

    I think it would be great if Christian Bale visited the victims in the hospital but without the costume, afterall the shooter was dressed in costume and the good deed could backfire.
