Christian Bale Says Batman Has Multiple-Personality Disorder In THE DARK KNIGHT RISES
In this new interview with The Daily Telegraph, actor Christian Bale, who plays Bruce Wayne/Batman in The Dark Knight Rises, revealed that his character is in a very poor health physically and mentally.
"He's filled with remorse, he's become a recluse, he's given up and completely quit. He's in very poor health physically and mentally. He is not a healthy superhero. He has multiple-personality disorder and is a very sad, lonely individual."
"He has the public persona of the playboy and the character of Batman is the personification of his rage and sense of injustice. He's almost a villain and takes it to the edge, where he can do no wrong, but he has this altruism holding him back from doing that. The reason he dresses in the Batman suit is that he feels monstrous, so he creates a monster to represent that rage and keep it away from his own personal life."
It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act. But everything will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar with a mysterious agenda. Far more dangerous, however, is the emergence of Bane, a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham drive Bruce out of his self-imposed exile. But even if he dons the cape and cowl again, Batman may be no match for Bane.
