Batman actor Christian Bale comments on BatKid and Ben Affleck

This past week, the world was touched and reminded that heroism and dreams can come true, as a 5-year old "BatKid" was granted a Gotham City of his own to stop the bad guys, set in good 'ol San Francisco by the efforts of the city and the Make-A-Wish Foundation. It made widespread news, and was even able to catch the attention of a former Batman star and actor from Christopher Nolan's epic Dark Knight Trilogy, Christian Bale.

Via Superherohype and during an interview with Access Hollywood, Bale goes on to comment about the charity event.

"I just think it's great. It's a great day for the little guy. I just think Make-A-Wish and San Francisco did such an amazing thing to organize that. You just think of the delight in that little fella's heart, running around doing that. Then also as someone who has played Batman, it's great to see that the symbol of Batman is so much bigger than any one person, than any film, than any comic book, any TV series, that's really what it's all about. It's irrelevant which actor is playing it, we're irrelevant in that sense. But for little Miles to have such a great day is just delightful."

Then, Bale went on to talk about his successor, Ben Affleck, who will be starring as the new Caped Crusader opposite Henry Cavill as Superman in the "Batman Vs Superman" 2015 film that acts as a sequel to this year's Man Of Steel. He went on to say this:

"I wish him all the best. He's a very experienced actor and filmmaker and he'll make it his own. Our thing's finished, we've always declared it was finished and it should be passed on to another actor and it will be again after him."

A video from the interview was shown with Bale talking about Affleck:
