He may have finished his tenure as The Dark Knight in Christopher Nolan's epic Batman film trilogy, but today marks a grand occasion still, as Christian Bale celebrates his birthday today!
Playing the part of Bruce Wayne/ Batman in Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises, Bale would also be seen in films like The Fighter (where he won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor), American Hustle, and most recently in Exodus: Gods and Kings. However, it's his role in The Dark Knight Trilogy that people will fondly remember him by, as he embodied a more realistic and grounded Batman for a generation to see!
While the world prepares for Ben Affleck's tenure as Bats for the DC Cinematic Universe, today is a celebration of his predecessor's nameday!
Happy 41st Birthday Christian Bale!
