`Batman` Christian Bale visits US shooting town
London: Hollywood actor Christian Bale visited Aurora, Colorado to comfort victims of last week`s shooting massacre, which occurred during a screening of his new film `The Dark Knight Rises`.
According to sources, Bale was spotted at the Medical Center of Aurora yesterday, where 20 of the 58 people wounded in Friday`s massacre are still receiving treatment, some of them in critical condition.
Rottman posted two photos of himself with Bale -- who won a best supporting actor Oscar in 2011 for his work in "The Fighter" -- on his Facebook page.
The 27-year-old Rottman said he suffered a gunshot wound to the leg in Friday`s attack.
"What a surprise! 19 Swedish staff members met actor Christian Bale today @ TMCA! More details soon," read another tweet from the Swedish Medical Center with a photo of Bale wearing a black T-Shirt and posing with medical personnel.
On Saturday, Bale said through his publicist: "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."
Another of the film`s stars, Anne Hathaway, said Sunday: "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."
James Holmes, 24, is accused of shooting 12 people dead and wounding 58 more at a cinema in Aurora, outside Denver, as young moviegoers packed the first midnight screening of the latest Batman film, "The Dark Knight Rises."
In the film, Bale plays Bruce Wayne - who dons his cape and mask to become the Caped Crusader - and Hathaway plays Selina Kyle, whose alter ego is Catwoman.
