By now most everyone has probably heard about Christian Bale’s rage explosion while filming Terminator: Salvation last month. (Verbal Abuse Wayne was set off when the director of photography wandered into a scene they were filming, forcing them to cut) The audio recording surfaced on the internet a couple days ago and already has a techno remix. (WARNING – Of course this stuff is NSFW)
To be honest, I think I would prefer a loud, profane Batman as opposed to the hoarse whisperer from The Dark Knight. In the newest installment of the DC super-hero franchise, Batman will battle Crewman, who wanders around Gotham City kinda getting in the way of stuff. The climax of the movie is a foul-mouthed battle scene so unjustifiably brutal it inspires Robin to say, “Holy anger batmanagement Batman!” It gets even worse in the movie after that, when Batman goes after Rodney Kingpin.
****UPDATE 2/4/09 – Forget Obama, Christian Bale is going to reinvigorate the American work ethic! First there was the techno remix and now we have a Bill O’Reilly/Christian Bale rage match and a revamped Newsies trailer! I never thought in my life I would type the words “revamped Newsies trailer.” Yes we can!
