Academy Award-winning actor Christian Bale needed some time to collect himself after he took off the Bat-suit for the very last time. At a recent press conference to promote The Dark Knight Rises, Bale said that he "just went down and sat in a room and realized this is it." Though "real proud" of his contribution to director Christopher Nolan's revitalization of the Batman franchise following the disastrous fourth movie, Batman & Robin, Bale doesn't feel any ownership of the character. In fact, Bale told MTV that he is "immensely" interested in seeing what happens to the franchise after The Dark Knight Rises and "intrigued" to see how another actor will interpret the character of Bruce Wayne/Batman. He also gave props to one of the actors who preceeded him in playing the "Caped Crusader" and you'll probably be as surpised as we were by his selection.
