5:36 PM TEXAS TIME: Christian Bale has again talked about THE DARK KNIGHT while doing press for 3:10 TO YUMA (Which I'm seeing tomorrow and can't wait!). Here's what he had to say:

"I don't think I would have been cast in 3:10 if it wasn't for 'Batman.'"

"We all have our kids coming to the set...It's nice. It's very nice to have visits from these little characters who don't follow the protocol on a movie set. And it's a very good thing for me to have something other than my work that I'm intensely absorbed in. I think—I feel—that it's helped the work, to have more responsibilities and duties outside it."

"I can't say much to you about [THE DARK KNIGHT], but it's a superb script that Chris and his brother have written."

And Bat-Fans, y'all will love this:

"I love the 'Batman' movies...I enjoy making them."

Every time I've had the chance to speak to Bale, I've always come away with the impression that he really likes the Batman character. He might not have been a comic book fan growing up like most of us, but I truly believe he digs The Bat -- and will continue to portray him as long as "They" keep them in the hands of a quality filmmaker.
