Batman makes an appearance in Aurora, CO …
Christian Bale went room to room, visiting the many victims of the theater shooting to their surprise and delight. This is the smart thing for Bale and 20th Century Fox to do/support. And Warner Bros. will be making a substantial donation to the charities that support the victims of the shooting. As the savvy author you are … you’ve noticed that much of the planned publicity for the Batman movie has been scaled back—at least in Colorado.
