Christian Bale is The Dark Knight

Christian Bale captures a moment in time with his camera while shooting a scene Friday on the set of the next Batman installment The Dark Knight (currently filming in Hong Kong, China).

Director Christopher Nolan was, of course, on hand to provide direction. The film also stars Heath Ledger as the Joker, Aaron Eckhart as district attorney Harvey Dent/Two-Face, Maggie Gyllenhaal as assistant D.A. Rachel Dawes (formerly played by Katie Holmes), Michael Caine as butler Alfred Pennyworth and Morgan Freeman (pictured below) as Lucius Fox, the CEO of Wayne Enterprises.

The Dark Knight has a tentative release date of July 18, 2008. Filming will reportedly conclude by the end of this month.

    Can’t believe I am the first! He is a cuttie! I am his big fan! It seems he is single again! His profile was found on a millionaire dating site last week! “He is very picky about girls,” according to the officials of wealthyromance matchmaking CO.

    Christian Bale could take my photo any time!!!!!! he’s so cute, so sexy :) . He is looking great but he is not whoring his image the way other starts do, take for example Paris Hilton, sorry Parisitis Hilton, she was photographed milking a microphone in South Korea I got so sick of seeing her everywhere, Paris is way overrated, way over seen on the media. If she would do something that we could really appreciate then ok, but come on, she is really whoring her image

    Maggie Gyllenhaal to play “Rachel”? She’s so old looking! She looks like she’s 40-something. Bad choice…although anyone is a better actor than Katie Holmes, even Lassie.

  • Jess

    My mum adores him! :D

  • guys

    i prefer maggie to katie! plus #3, maggie as the perfect face for an actress because she has the ability to look both older and younger. that’s why she can audition for any role and possible get it- every actress would want that. she looked young in ‘mona lisa smile’ and used up in ‘sherrybaby’. just look at other actresses like maybe christina ricci, katie holmes, natalie portman etc- they could never play a role of a mother but maggie can.

    i’m bashing your opinion, i’m just trying to state that you should wait to see the movie and see how she looks before you start hating on her for the role.

  • popile

    Replace KH for MAggie? Are u joking me? Katie is
    ten times better actress and better looking. Not to mention nicer, MAggie is just one of those hollywood mean/not likeable people!

  • [~Famous~]

    I hop ethey give maggie her very own cowl to wear, to hide all that fug.

  • Cain

    Wow that’s a Leica M8 he’s using…A super compact DSRL. I guess I don’t have to say it’s bloody expensive…

  • meemee

    I love Christian Bale !

  • Fleasha is a bunch of crock.

  • Kiss Kiss bang bang

    It’s not that I hate Maggie, I think she was good at “The secretery” but that’s about it. I like Katie better!!!!!


    I love him, he is one of the most underated actors around. I’m
    just waiting for a oscar nomination this year. I can’t wait for
    “The Dark Knight” and I agree anyone will be better that Katie Holmes,
    it’s just sad they couldn’t have cast someone else in the first
    place that would have gone the distance.

  • Love him

    There are never enough pictures of Christian. I love him!

  • johnny depp’s mistress

    You can have Christian and Heath. I’ll take Mr. Oldman thank-you very much.

  • peroquet

    His wife was walking down the streets of Hong Kong with him this past weekend so I would say he is still very married!

  • Bree

    He is ugly esp his nose.

  • Lea

    Bale and Katie Holmes together look perfect than Tom Cruise. Just stating the facts even when I like Cruisey.

  • eureka

    Maggie is ugly and just does nudity. Katie outclasses her in every way. But maybe Tom was a little afraid to let his young gorgeous wife opposite Bale boy and not that i blame him.
    Katie nowadays is killing us all with her hotness.

  • Ruth

    He is not aging well but I prefer to look at him than Ledger and Aaron Eckhart.I hate that Maggie is in this movie.

  • Jan

    I LOVE CHRISTIAN BALE. He’s such a hottie and a cutie. His wife is so lucky to have him!!
    I’m disappointed Maggie G. is in this. I don’t like her at all, I hope she won’t ruin this movie.

  • Cat

    Dream on entry number 1 Christian is not single. His wife is always by his side. Christian would never leave her, He said they are completly in love,. I’ve always wanted him and only him, He’s is beautiful, talented and intelligent. I’ve never was a Brad Pitt type girl and never will be , Chris is the only male celeb I like and want. And I’m Black woman so that says alot.
