Christian Bale, star of the last three Batman films, met at the Medical Center of Aurora on Tuesday afternoon with seven patients injured in the mass shooting that occurred during a midnight showing of “The Dark Knight Rises.”

Bill Voloch, interim president of Medical Center of Aurora, said Bale spent about 2˝ hours at the hospital, where he met with five people still being treated for their injuries. Two others came from Swedish Medical Center to meet Bale, who stars as Batman/Bruce Wayne.

“The patients were really happy to meet Bale,” Voloch said. “They are obviously big fans of his movies. They wanted to see Batman and were really pleased to see Bale.”

Sometimes, these Hollywood types actually prove that they're just as human as the rest of us. Very touching.

That was a very thoughtful gesture.

And he asked the hospital to keep it low-profile, too -- no media coverage while he was there. Very decent of him.

That was a very decent move on his part. He was right to keep it quiet so it didn't turn into a media circus....good show.
