Christian Bale Sheds Light on The Dark Knight

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times’ Dish Rag blog, The Dark Knight star Christian Bale talked about stepping into the batsuit for a second time, going one-on-one with Christopher Nolan’s newly imagined Joker and working with the late Heath Ledger on the highly anticipated sequel (latimesblogs.latimes.com, 7/1).

“When he was the Joker he was the Joker throughout, absolute commitment to that. And he’s portrayed him in a way that hasn’t been portrayed before. He has this kind of anarchic, punk, Clockwork Orange approach to it,” said Bale. “He [has] done such a damn good job that if Chris decides to make a third movie, he set himself a real challenge of how do you up the ante with any villain after Heath’s Joker.”

In the interview, Bale also discusses Terminator: Salvation, in which he will play a major role as an older John Connor. He calls that film—the fourth in the series—a “reinvention” of the franchise. Click here to read the full article.
